Pastries - yum !

This place was near the studio we were staying in and every day we would walk past their pretty restaurant and pastry shop window. On our second day I decided to try some of the lovely looking pastries. The man in the restaurant came to serve me and he gave me and my partner (who was standing in... read more

We went here on the recomendation of a nearby restaurant owner who's place was full. While the atmosphere was very nice, the service was a dreadful from the beginning and only got worse. Despite the restaurant being less than half-full the waitress ignored us and had to be flagged down to take our order. After an hour of waiting she... More

We visited this restaurant by chance as the restaurant we had booked was not open. What a pleasant surprise. I had the vegetarian banquet which was light and refreshing after a week spent indulging in rich food. The couscous was so good. Service was friendly and relaxed.

A wonderful little restaurant! We discovered it by chance on the first day of our last Paris trip and decided to return the next day. The owner turned out to be a quiet, gentle, warm and welcoming man. He will explain the exotic dishes in (at least) French and English. If we were uncertain about something, he let us try... More

This welcoming place in a nice neighbourhood (the 9th arrondissement is probably one of the most underrated neighbourhoods to go out in Paris), an institution with decades of dedicated service, Wally le Saharien has some of the fluffiest, most carefully prepared couscous you'll ever taste. The dry Saharan couscous - both the méchoui (lamb) and the two vegetarian versions, one... More

We visited Wally le Saharien in November 2010. I had wanted to visit the restaurant for years following a review in the New York Times, and finally had the opportunity. The restaurant is quaint and was a warm refuge on a cold rainy night. We were given a fanatastic table without a reservation. The food was outstanding. The vegetarian couscous... 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.
