This was our third trip to Bouillon Chartier, and the first time the menus were in English. I think they finally gave in to the requests. I was just as happy to have them in French only, as it added to the experience. In two of our three visits to Chartier, we (as a couple) were seated at a 4-top... More

We were lucky with our seating as quite a queue can build up! Either arrive early (6.30) or really late if you want to avoid waiting for a long time. The service was surprisingly good especially in Paris, the city notorious for rude waiters. The food was nice (not exquisite, but the prices make it well worth it) and it... More

This place was huge ! It had enough place to accomadate more than 100 people. It is a French cuisine restaurant and is very typical . The waiters were kind and helpful too. A top top: go there at 12 or at 3 , because in the peak lunch time you will get a lot of crowd . Enjoy!

Waiter not very polite, and food average, but this is a not expensive restaurant and the decorations and in general the experience is great as it is a typical original Parisian brasserie.

This restaurant was recommended to us before we went to Paris. Its cheap and as a result very popular. It was therefore very crowded the night we were there (Friday night). There was a waiting line outside. The food was good compared to price - so met our expectations. We had steak and fries. The restaurant is very busy so... More

We arrived and found a massive queue, luckily however we were the only couple in the queue and managed to skip straight through to the restaurant. It was so busy, full of chat. We were served quickly and really enjoyed our lunch. It was really good value food and felt very French. They wrote the bill on the table which... More

Very hard to beat this place. Amazing setting and food is remarkably good value. Possible to eat well and memorably on a budget. We went n a Sunday evening and still had to queue - remember this place probably seats 300 plus! Wine fairly rough and ready, but for 12 euros, can't complain. Essential Parisienne experience.

A top recommend, reputedly the oldest restaurant in Paris, bit of a queue we went at about 14.30 and had to wait 15 minutes for a table. Tables tightly packed and a real buzz in the air. Above the central tables are brass runs of railway carriage style luggage racks to give you more room. Shabby Chic to Quirky depending... More

A great place to go and eat, especially at lunchtime when even on a dull Monday it will be full of locals enjoying the unpretentious menu of steak frites, lamb chops, soups, ect, A beautiful old building tucked away off the main street, there is a great atmosphere. Be prepared to sit next to and talk with a total stranger,... 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.
