I ordered two items from two different counters, and both the cod dinner and the raspberry tart were very good. I've been here a few times and I've always found the service efficient and friendly. As mentioned, food is not cheap but it is considered fine cuisine. I'm not a connoisseur and there are plenty of patisseries, bistros and restaurants... More

We normally pick food items to take home with us from here but this time we also sat on the deck and had a light meal - lunch. The foie gras du canard was excellent. Likewise the risotto with truffles was a delight. Espresso gave the kick. We sat and watched people pass by buy ice creams from the counter... More

This was recommended to us by a friend who had lived in Paris. The pastries look and taste divine: some almost look too good to eat. We purchased some of their croissants for breakfast and they were delicious.,if we had the time, and the space, we would take some with us when we leave.

Fauchon has lovely pastries, chocolates, food gifts, deli, but there is one thing I would go back for again and again is the hot chocolate, OMG, just the best.

The choice is of high quality, but except for sweets rather limited, compared to the smaller and more charming local cheese and meat shops. Also the service and prices are not compelling to pay another visit. If you want a take out or a quick bite, it's ok.

Go to Paris each year in May and have never not visited Fauchon. Always for tea/coffee and cake, a purchase in the shop and once for dinner in the restaurant. It doesn't quite have the refinement of L'aduree but it still feels special and part of Paris and the cakes are delicious! When we had dinner in the restaurant the... More

Staying in Opera / Bourse

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.
