Reservations necessary for lunch!

Luckily my friends had made a reservation otherwise I would have been turned away. While waiting for them, I was able to see that the service was performed by neophytes (students from a restaurant school?). It was extremely slow, incompetent - several full plates & then empty plates & glasses... read more

We were pointed in this direction by one of our tour guides and we are so glad that we were. There was a special New Year Eve prix fixe menu that was exquisite. My daughter named it the best meal she had ever eaten. The atmosphere was warm and cozy, the service superb and helpful (our French is limited). We... More

Classic Bistro (red carpet chair) near the theater. In summer it is open like a terrace. A little expensive

During our stay in Paris our hotel recommended this restaurant as a good place to dine, and the reviews seemed good. One evening before we were about to hit the Moulin Rouge for a 9pm show, we decided to pop in. We weren't hungry enough for several courses at this stage so just wanted to order some cheese and wine,... More

Made a reservation for a Friday evening as part of a romantic weekend in Paris. Booked mainly because of the proximity to the hotel and some other reviews and was not disappointed! Bistro deux theatres offered a fairly rare commodity in Paris, that of real value for money! We didn't actually look at the prices before we booked, just really... More

The restaurant was of an exceptionally high standard, we arrived at 19:30, the restaurant was busy, we were immediately seated, the menu was in English and well detailed. The... More

One of our favorite restaurants we visited on a 10-day trip. We had dinner there twice! Superb food, luxurious ambiance and service, varied menu, and a wide range of prices.

It's not easy eating solo but some places make it a little harder than others. This is a potentially charming place but it doesn't go out of its way to please - the food is good'ish - but the waitstaff doesn't doesn't try hard and is good at the shrug response - I've been before and it was a pleasure...

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.
