It's a busy, hip restaurant with unexpectedly delicious food. I had a traditional eggs in a pot dish that was divine. We all loved what we ate. The service was fine, if a little casual.

We were so lucky our hotel was on the samestreet as this gorgeous little gem. We got the real french feeling from the moment we walked in, and it is nothing like the typical 'bistrots'. The tables are really close and you can, or not, interact with your neighbours, and confirmhow delicious each dish is. Its home cooking with french... More

Made a reservation based on Trip Advisor reviews. So great. The staff was welcoming and accomodating. Food was outstanding, service was great! When we asked for a wine recommendation based on our tastes, they hit the nail on the head. Prices were reasonable and the ambiance was fantastic. Brought our kids & they loved it too. Don'yt miss this gen!

Got here because one of the people I was travelling with knew the place. Food is good, not spectacular but good. But the place is so amazing... it's a shelter of the 80's, plenty of picture of movies, tv series... so it was just fun playing the game of "do you remember..."? Staff is nice, there's a cozy atmosphere and... More

I went to this cozy little restaurant with some colleagues and was delighted since the moment I entered. Nice and friendly staff and funny menu. We ordered a couple of starters to share (they took a biiit long to come) and they were simple but tasted really good, and after the main dishes were just delicious. Le filet mignon and... More

A very nice restaurant with a cozy atmosphere. The service is perfect with friendly and patient people. But all of this is nothing compare to the food: fresh products allow food to have taste and it is like a explosion of savour when you bite in it. Definitely a must go if you are nearby!

The people are nice. The food was good with good portions. It took a little long to get served but we were busy introducing our parents to each other so we did not care.

On the advice of a Paris-trained chef, who recommended the restaurant to me, I was very excited. Made reservations for two, but the other person could not come. They attempted to make me sit at the bar even though my table was available. I did insist on the table, from that point the service was sketchy at best. Took quite... More

Les Fils à Maman is the perfect place to enjoy very good food and is the perfect ambiance that will remind you beautiful memories of your childhood if you were born in the 80's! I've been there twice already and I tried their Filet trop mignon and their cordon bleu. Both dishes were absolutely divine! I also tried their fondant... More

Once upon a time there were Alban, Julien, Laurent, Erwann and Nicolas five foodies, five real foodies, of the worst kind (the one that would 'kill' for an old-fashioned Blanquette of veal with some homemade chips or a sweet Tarte Tatin decorated with whipped cream).Five gourmets, basically amateurs, but who knew WHAT IS REALLY GOOD. Five nostalgics with bittersweet memories of their mum's cooking, simple and tasty at the same time, the one with real products, the one that you long for, the one that tastes GOOD... Yummy yummy...

In summary this is the story of five mothers' sons who, because they like to eat and to eat right, got together to give birth to THEIR own restaurant, the one where the food is SIMPLY GOOD. And if you need to check that our food is GREAT, those four mummys' boys invite you to join them at 7 bis rue Geoffrey Marie, 9th district. NB: Lovers of deep-frozen food and canned peas are not welcome.

The gourmet and authentic food is more efficient than whichever time-machine, and dives into a wonderful nostalgia...

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.
