What a great place to eat. Busy and with a fantastic atmosphere, you are seated next to strangers who soon become friends! The food is delicious, served quickly by friendly waiters who cheerful banter adds to the charm of the restaurant. We will definitely return on our next visit to Paris.

I've been there with my wife and friends for her birthday dinner. Arrived without reservation and in a few minutes we got a table and the service was very fast even tough the place was crowded. It seems you are getting back to the last century, decor is very nice. Lots of french food options on starters, mains and desserts.... More

This restaurant has been serving affordable working class meals for more than a hundred years. The dining room decor is classic with mirrored walls. The waiters wear the traditional long white aprons and are friendly and helpful. The food is fantastic and delivered promptly. Be prepared for a long wait if you arrive after 6:30, but no one rushes you... More

Cheap, quick, consistent, friendly. Food variable but a lovely dining room and stylish, efficient and smart service. A line of people waiting to get in at 19:00 on a week day speaks volumes about this place. Expect to be seated with others, for courses to come quickly, to be surprised at how little you pay. Don't go expecting nouvelle cuisine;... More

Great place to get authentic working class French dishes. Fast service by a quick wait staff (once you're seated). Go early for lunch or dinner to avoid the lines, but worth the wait regardless.

Stopped here based on the recommendation of my DK Paris book, walked from the opera big bus paris stop. Most affordable meal we've sat down to in two weeks in Europe!

A very old restaurant which is always buzzing with people. Me and my friend and a really good time at Bouillon Chartier on a Friday evening. 1. Food: We had Choucroute and Poulet for main course and Baba au rhum and Chocolat au choux for dessert. All the dishes were tasted really good and were well cooked. The Baba au... More

The half-hour wait to get into the restaurant at 2-2:30 pm sort of doomed the visit for me. You can get better food at a number of place in the area, though you can also get worse. The most interesting part of the visit is the serice staff who sometimes balance 8 dishes at a time to bring you your... More

We ate here twice whilst in Paris as it was such good value for money. Some of the main courses are a little small so I'd recommend having a starter. The wine was well priced and tasty. Steak and chips was good, as we're the snails! Gets busy in the evenings but worth waiting in line.

Nice place good food in general. We had a business dinner there but I must say it was noisy at best. Would recommend but don't count on always being able to hear.

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.
