We were hungry and wanted a nice lunch...this was the place to go. It was not cheap, but the service and food were truly outstanding. EVen security was there to make sure we had bags placed in a safe location. Absolute luxury in the hotel and bathrooms...very very nice.

Yes, this place is full of tourists but the food is great and the even more amazing is the view of the opera house and decor of this restaurant. I had a sublime octopus salad. It was just as tasty as it was beautiful. I'm hoping to pop in here for dinner or lunch on my next visit to Paris.

We eat oisters no. Zero - fine des claires... The best ever And we eat at the dessert Mille feiile - the best one ever. The wine was excellent, the whole dinner excellent. One of the best restaurants in Paris

I ate here for my first dinner in Paris and I expected it to be very expensive but I soon discovered it was much more affordable than I had expected. The food was superb and the view of the Opera only made the experience better.

OK, this place is way over priced and can often be crawling with tourists (like me) but it doesn't matter it's a blast. The place is iconic. The inside is so beautiful and feels like stepping back in time. I've eaten dinner here several times. Both times the food was impeccable if not revolutionary. The service can be haughty but... More

My wife and I dropped in for a late night meal after the Opera. We ordered sandwiches and found them quite good, followed with a little dessert and a couple of coffees. All excellent. The big however is that even by Parisian standards, the prices are far too high, 8.5 euros for one coffee. I don't want a Tim Horton's... More

After a long day of sight-seeing and a relaxing drink and appetizer at our hotel, we were in the mood for a relatively "easy" meal of just an entree and dessert since it was getting late. We had passed Cafe de la Paix getting off the metro near our hotel, and based on other reviews, chose it over a number... More

The service here was lackluster at best. Waiter was one of the rudest I have encountered in France. The food is completely overpriced. ?24 for a sandwich and fries. It was good but not worth what we paid. The location is great right across from the opera but all in all it was not worth it.

The Cafe de la Paix can be a pricey prospect but you can't beat the scene. The outdoor seating is right across from Opera Garnier and the street theatre that occurs around such a picturesque setting. The food is quite good and I had great service from Zina. My French is only so-so and when she heard my lousy American... More

My grandparents had visited Café de la Paix years ago when visiting Paris and recommended it to me. And it did not disappoint! Great food and service accentuated by the grand atmosphere made for a lovely meal. Highly recommend.
