Description: Georges Opera restaurant and piano bar in Paris in the fabulous district between the Opera and the Place Vendome offers a gastronomic experience in a warm, attractive milieu. The decor is simple and smart, with creamy-coloured walls, modern art works, dark velours banquettes, and the presence of the piano for live music each evening. The menu changes with the market and the seasons, and is essentially French cuisine terroir, though there is a special emphasis on dishes of Portugal, like cassolette of prawns Algarve style, two types of cod, as well as foie gras in port. There really is a Georges here, and he will welcome you and make your dining experience a seamlessly pleasant one.

“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

On an extremely hot July evening this was an oasis of calm and air-conditioned comfort. The patron is a character and very helpful. A good varied menu and excellent value. Never once felt hurried. Will go again and again.

“Great food, great service and great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013 via mobile

Have been a few times and Georges never fails. A warm welcome, personal friendly service plus an interesting and varied menu.

For the location it is also great value for money although the wine prices are typical Parisien - i.e. high!

Reasonable room between tables rather than the normal bistro squash so it is comfortable dining.

A pianist adds to the ambiance and you are not rushed to finish your meal and leave.

Will return next time in Paris for sure.

“A FUN NIGHT!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

The charm of George and the excellent meals makes this a satisfying place to dine.
We were enchanted. For a country boy from the outback in New Zealand it was a delightful new experience.
Good food. Good wine. Live music. And George!! What more could you want.
We refused to let a group of Australians - descendants of criminals remember - spoil the ambience.

“wonderful time , good food and hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

what more can you ask for in Paris then a welcoming staff, a caring owner and a reasonable price for quality food. We had a wonderful dinner and will return.

“A tired place”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2013

Having seen the encouraging tripadvisor reviews, we expected something very different to what we experienced. The food was bland and disappointing (apart from the nicely flavoured sea bream), the decor was tired, the chairs uncomfortable and the atmosphere dull (despite a live pianist who did his best to enliven things). The attentions of the eponymous host could not fill the gap.
