Interesting experience

Setting- imagine an eatery at a railway station. Small tables, little place, huge hall. Busy and bustling. No frills. Though nice historic interior. No bookings accepted. You have to queue but it is going pretty fast. Service fast and efficient, could be possibly seen by some as rude. We had to... read more

Chartier is an institution. Of course it has changed the menu over the years and the prices are not same as when i came there as a poor student 40 years ago, but the style of food,service, the direct friendly approach, be it from the Maitre'D or the waiter was VERY recommendable ,same as on my first or any visit...

We heard good things so decided to check out this restaurant. And it's like stepping back in time with such a gorgeous antique dining room. However the charm stops there. Just getting there took waiting in a line out the door for 30 minutes. And yet when finally seated it took over two and a half hours due to slow... More

A really worth/must-to-see restaurant. Our friend took us there, we were lucky not to stand in queues before entering (and we've heard they can be quite long..). The place is really crowded, he dishes are served very quick, tables are situated in minimum distance between eachother, so there's limited space for you left. And prepare to be seated with someone... More

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 met a french brother and sister who we... 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.

Staying in Opera / Bourse

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.
