The restaurant's refined decor is a faithful illustration of the Art Nouveau style, with its original mosaics and its crystal Saint-Louis chandeliers a truly Parisian institution located on the Place des Ternes. The head chef prepares a refined, traditional French cuisine using the freshest ingredients. An immensely popular restaurant with both Parisians and discerning tourists, who appreciate beautifully prepared food. --Veritable insitution parisienne de la place des Ternes, son decor raffine est fidele au style "Art Nouveau" avec ses mosaiques d'origine et ses lustres de cristal de Saint-Louis, le Chef de cuisine propose une carte traditionnelle raffinee offrant un large choix de produits frais. Son banc d'ecailles en est d'ailleurs une belle illustration.

Our entire group (10 adults and 8 children) feasted at Le Grand Café Capucines. Our hotel, Scribe Paris Opera, secured us the reservation and we were very pleased with an elegant, sumptuous French dinner. Wonderful all around and the restaurant staff were so nice and friendly.

We had a great service, we tried the different oysters to see which had the best taste and took some more after. We had escargots, crepe flambe, delicious!

Let me start by saying I didn't order the Mac and Cheese - it was my husband's little sister's dish! But it had been transformed into something decadently delightful and I shamelessly had a taste of hers and offered to finish off what she could not! Perhaps a dish worth sharing as it was rich with truffle flavour, creamy and... 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.
