No good meals. Cuisse de canard you can easily make in your home kitchen, so you expect a restaurant to match that and not deliver meat you hardly can get the knife through.

We had five meals, where three of them were cuisse de canard. These three meals were hardly edible. The waiter showed no signs of service or was not particularly accommodating. Bad place - and expensive!

Nice food and nice staff. I would suggest eating Steak Tartare (with a mini-salad and french fries - so good). Menu in English.

I ordered a glass of Tatinger Champagne to sit and enjoy a nice evening and VOILA, two mice ran across the patio and sank into holes. I ran away leaving most of the champagne in the glass. I ran back to get my glasses that I left on the table and they would not give them to me until I... More

Simple AND full of tradition. Menu ok AND pricing a little bit high, due to Quality. Sentral AND a Great city-break. Try it out

The day I went there, it was almost empty, and even this way, it took 15 minutes to they send me to the table... I choose a chessburger, what is not so hard to do... it took more 35 minutes to be served, and it was burned, with old and hard bread. My friend asked for a pasta, and it... More

Steve made our dinner at Le Cardinal particularly enjoyable. Loved the beef bourguignon and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Had a very pleasant and comfortable evening.

This a place with average quality of service where regular customers are not recognized and when occasional customers spend money they are still ignored...only a tourist trap!

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.
