Good place to have lunch

I've had lunch there several times and it is always good. We always come out full, and are never disappointed by what we order.

We have been to Cafe de la Paix many times over a number of years. Yes, we know it is a touristy place but liked the ambience and price/quality was acceptable. However, this last visit (have not been there for a couple of years) was a real disappointment. Really mediocre food but totally overpriced. Service was of such attitude as... More

I have been here so many times and every time I like it more, it has so much charm, it is located in one of the best parts of town. Cafe de la Paix has so much history, first a glass of wine in Cafe de Paris and then you are back in Paris and feel like a Parisien

First things first - this place is horrendously expensive, to the tune of €15+ for a pint of beer. With that premise we sat down in on the outside terrace facing - to the left - the magnificently renovated Opera and watched the traffic and the buzzing square - prepared to be ignored by arrogant waiters. It did not happen... More

We were staying at the hotel and stopped for dinner - the food was great (my wife loved the French Onion Soup) and the staff attentive and helpful. Great experience.

This famous location provides a beautiful atmosphere at the foot of the opera. Sit outside to see and be seen or sit in the sumptuous dining room. It's definitely pricey and you may get a better croque monsieur for the euro, but it's an experience to be there.

We ended up on this restaurant because we were around shopping, the terrace was packed so we decided to have lunch at the more formal restaurant. The menu was expensive, but it seemed like a nice restaurant. We had oysters to start which where ok, and then each one a plate, my husband the steak tartare and i had the... More

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
