No bad to try

It's a very famous restaurant. We went there at 6pm to avoid the peak hour. The environment was nice and traditional. The staff was efficient. However, the food was average, not as good as people say so.

I wouldn't rave about the food here except from that it is very cheap but what makes up is the brilliant french atmosphere and mix between traditional sollum parisien waiters and really friendly and nice waiters who couldn't be happier to help. Be prepared to queue!

The place in located in the center of Paris. Most of the times there are always people in line outside. Fortunately, when we went, we entered immediately, but it was anyway full. The menu has a long list of dishes to choose. Prices are lower compared to the average. Portions are good and food is tasty. Service is fast. The... More

Our family of 4, including 2 teenage daughters, thoroughly enjoyed our meal and the experience. Yes, it is touristy but since we ate later, we did see more local diners. The overall experience was unique - from waiting in a short line, to being seated and even how the waiter prepared our bill. The escargot was delicious and everyone enjoyed... More

The best tip is get there early. We arrived at 6 pm and were seated right away. An hour later the queue outside had to mean at least an hour wait. For our party of two we were seated at a table for four and another random couple were placed there which turned out to be fun because they were... More

This "restaurant" feeds the masses, hundreds being fed at the same time, there is no air conditioning and it is like a sauna inside in the Summer. The food is basic and is on the table 3 minutes after being ordered, not a vegetable in sight - I ordered the chicken - the chicken seemed to have been boiled while... More

This is such a fundamental establishment in Paris, fast, efficient and a piece of history as well. You go there for good honest french food without the thrills, and that is what you get, as well as to experience how life use to be in times gone by.

Restaurant opened in 1889. They must be doing something right and our visit was fun and tasty. I'd go back in a second. The waiter was super efficient and keeps track of your bill by writing the amount owed for each order on the white paper table covering. The food arrived quickly and was flavored well. I'm an adventurous eater... 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.
