We ate here upon the recommendation of our concierge. While we liked the atmosphere and service, the menu was very limited. There was really nothing I wanted to eat. We both had the special Lyonnaise pot which was some kind of mixture of pork shank...More

We were fortunate to get a table despite not having booked. Food was generous and delicious. Quenelles were perfection itself. Poire Helene to share was a great way to complete a delight

Classic fine brasserie dining you seek out when in Paris. Cozy, charming dining room. Our party of 3 "foodies" worked all over the ample menu, and enjoyed each offering: black pudding, sweet breads, fish,and desserts. Satisfying selection of wines. Friendly, helpful professional wait staff. Now...More

As the title indicates, this was all around a truly incredible meal. I will be returning when we inevitably get back to Paris. The "Black Pudding" is a must have.

Want the most unbelievable traditional french meal you've ever had in your life? Go here. Frog legs, Foie Gras, Blood Sausage, Quenelles... I had that all in one meal because it was so good I couldn't help myself.

Reasonably priced & authentic! Food was home-styled & desserts weren't too sweet which was great. The ambience was in its original settings and great service. Worth making a booking in advanced if in large group, otherwise get in early for dinner at 7:30pm when they...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

Aux Lyonnais: a Parisian bistro dedicated to the cuisine of Lyon !This traditional "bouchon Lyonnais" in Paris opened in 1890.

Just like Alain Ducasse, he gives pride of place to local produce, and is partial to friendly and festive cooking that suits the traditional setting with its beautiful zinc covered wood countertop and the metro-style wall tiles that delight the guests.A star dish of the establishment: Coddle egg, crayfish fricassee with herbs: Calf’s liver with parsley and garlic, tender potatoes shavings; Lyonnaise-style quenelles, Nantua sauce…
