Loved this street filled with gourmet stores with cheese and desserts and Italian specialties. It's just a few blocks long but filled with yummy spots to grab a bite. The cafes are convivial and you feel good strolling the street. A must.

There is definitely a lively buzz about this pedestrianized street, much more than Rue Cler or Rue des Martyrs. Look out for the memorial in the street for the last people to be punished for homosexuality in France in 1750.

Full of small restaurants (quality is often great and the variety is such that you can be overwhelmed with choices) the rue Montorgueil is a very lively place (night and day...). It also features small hype boutiques and typical specialty stores which helps keep its typical atmosphere. You can walk down the street from the Sentier métro station to Les... More

If you are lucky enough to be renting an apartment in Paris with a kitchen you can cook in, stop here and buy the ingredients for your meal. The shape have the most freshest, healthiest foods I have ever seen from anywhere in the world. You can get whatever you want here at a fairly reasonable cost for the high... More

Really impressed with this street. Great quality and much variety although mostly French and Italian. Some delis and fruit and fish stalls. Upmarket and quite expensive but relatively good value & better quality compared with restaurants closer to the river.

I love this area because it is pedestrian only, has great shops, bakeries and restaurants including seafood, pastries and macarons. If we were to visit Paris again I would start my grocery shopping here.

This is a much less touristy part of Paris. While it is easy to get by with minimal French in most of the city, one can not expect anyone to understand any English at all in the restaurants and shops here. The shops cater to locals, with more realistic pricing as a result. Not somewhere I would recommend to anyone... 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.
