May be one of the best places around to eat a burger or have a piece of beef. You will however probably have to be patient, the service being quite long. It is however too expensive: 24 € for a burger is not serious, whtaver...More

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

Les Athletes is a retro sport theme restaurant where you will not find a single TV screen but in its place, mythical and historical objects such as old bowling balls, weights you grandpa used to use, boxing gloves like the ones Muhammad Ali used to fight with, medals, trophy’s, vintage photography and vintage snowshoes that will plunge you into a parallel, refined and refined world. The ceiling which is covered with salvaged old plates that use to hang during the colonial era in South African houses is the finishing touch that sets the tone at Les Athlètes. Our kitchen’s objective is to transmit flavourful emotions, to taste the taste of victory, such as when one hits a ninth inning homerun with bases loaded or 100m run dash victory by a split second! On your marks, get set...GO! A variety of culinary events await you at Les Athlètes. The first inning is made up of a selection of cold cuts, followed by a second half of tender braised beef cheek served with vegetables, then get qualified for the coffee competition taking place on our terrace and lift the’’ Digestif’’ Trophy.A large terrace situated under a row of majestic columns on Rue des Colonnes awaits you for an after work after a long day at the office or a long day of sightseeing in Paris. The restaurant has two floors available for those who wish to organize private cocktails, private evenings, birthday parties or business dinners. Restaurant on two floors, you can contact us for cocktails, parties, birthdays, business dinners ... Athletes give you the option of privatizing the place (even partially).
