Brilliant lunch- best meal in Paris

Arrived and queued for 5-10 mins to get in. Great atmosphere indie- huge room of traditional style, staff very efficient and fun. Menu is very cheap and food amazing. Had good red wine, snails to start, confit duck for main and a choux pastry dessert with hot chocolate sauce. All amazing. Also... read more

My first time here in 20 years and I remembered why I love this place. It's cheap, very cheap, but the food is fine, the atmosphere fun and even the wine is drinkable. Lunch for 2 of 3 courses and with a bottle of wine came to EUR 49, all in. A light lunch menu is EUR 11. Nothing seems... More

Been here several times for the steak. The peppercorn sauce is made with some sort of magic. The staff are sometimes a bit bizarre and you can be rushed out at busy times, but for central paris it is such good value for money!

if you only ever get to go to one restaurant, make it here....a favourite of mine since the sixties. Sit where you are told by really rude Parisian waiters and eat cheapest french food ever, snails are always good..even though they probably come out of a tin from Taiwan.

I give this place 4 stars mostly because the prices are really low for Parisian standards and the setting is somehow unique and worth experiencing. However, don't expect any exquisite french dinner here.

Worth a visit for the experience and to see the decor. We were lucky in only having to wait about 5 minutes to get in, but we were tucked away on a table on the mezzanine level at the side of the restaurant. The menu is typical Paris brasserie, and the food was well prepared. Impressed by the waiter writing... More

This was our one totally authentic, "fancy" night out in Paris. We were seated among many locals and tourists alike. The food was great and the building was beautiful. At times the restaurant did seem a bit chaotic, but I think that is maybe part of its charm. My favourite part was when my friend who clearly could not read... More

We had seen this restaurant online before arriving in Paris and went on purpose. I am so pleased we did. It's unique! They do not take booikings, you just have to queue. There were only two of us, but they only have tables for four. So we were put on a table with two other people, who were just leaving,... More

Be prepared to queue for 40-50 mins to get into this popular ar eatery. Also this is not the place for that special romantic or intimate dinner. But nevertheless less this restaurant serves a good range of simple but well prepared French classics. Food and wine is good value, with good quantities and low prices by Paris standards. This is...

3.5 actually. A friend of my boyfriend, who lives in Paris, took us here for dinner. It was quite late in the night and we were all starving so was really good to know someone who knows where to go.... (as just arrived in Paris, tired etc). Had to wait to get a table for about 30-40min, so just shows... 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.
