Gambas croustillants were great for starters, and had the thon mi cuit as a main. Both were very good and the main was copious. Worth another visit

We were staying on Rue d'Aboukir and looking for somewhere for a wedding anniversary meal - with the usual Paris problem of being vegetarian. La Mauvaise Reputation was the first place that we looked at the menu at and saw that they had a couple of vegetarian options and it seemed like a decent place, but as we hadn't booked... More

I won't spend too much time going over the same territory that the reviews have already covered that led us to come here ourselves, but suffice to say that we also found the food to be incredibly delicious, the staff to be charming and welcoming and kind, and the atmosphere to be warm and cozy. I've been to Paris 6... More

I have been here already several times as it is close to our Paris office. Food is always good and fresh. This time we took Salmon Maki as a starter and than Risotto with mushrooms and safran. Really tasty. Make sure you take Coffee gourmet. Perfect. A bit overpriced. .. like everything in Paris.

Sometimes you just feel a place will be great. Rarely, it truly is. The Mauvais Reputacion is great. Wonderful flavors all made in house and service that was mellow and attentive at the same time. A win.

I went there for a dinner with my colleague. Service was very professional and fast. We relayed on waiter recommendation and we didn't made a mistake. Food was really good which I can also say for the red wine. Price is ok for the Paris centre. My only complaint is they don't have menus in English language, but stuff speaks... More

To be frank, I can't add much to what has already been said below. The previous 10+ reviews are – without exception – accurate and positive. On two visits to Paris we've dined three times at La Mauvaise Reputation – this is a restaurant that cares about what it does. (We've also dined at Michelin starred restos, but dollar for... More

Went to this resto with friends during the week. Excellent service including an informal visit from what looked to be the chef. Set menu with interesting combinations that were extremely well presented including pork from Bigorre with cepes and potatoes and ended up with a 3 chocolate dessert with hot sauce revealing white choc ice cream.. definitely worth a detour

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.
