Had a meal here the other night at the recommendation of a hotel staff member. We went relatively early, around 8:00pm & got in straight away, no queue. The place is extremely busy & quite cramped, although still comfortable. The food was served efficiently (fast service) for quick turn over, but was quite basic . You should ask for an... More

This is a truly classic bistro that dates back to the 1890s, whose original mission of providing great food at a reasonable price is still in vogue. The food and service are exquisite. The atmosphere is charming, relaxed, and social. Wine is especially good and cheap! For the price of a large glass or half carafe elsewhere, you get a... More

Lineups can be long and servers can be blunt, but being rushed to ensure table turnover is the price you pay for amazing gourmet, traditional cuisine at Chartier - one of the oldest restaurants in Paris. Appetizers start at $2 euros and mains at around 8. Try something exotic like calf head, escargot or steak tar tar. There's also something... More

Having been here previously for dinner, I think lunch is better. It is still a formula which has been working for well over 100 years: good, honest food, served rapidly with professional service and very reasonable prices. A real institution in Paris! Again, sharing a table might put some off but, my experiences have been nothing but good and fun... More

This restaurant is a real hidden gem. Everything about is special, it's not fine dining, it's social dining. Food is really good value and the atmospere is really special. This place is a must visit place in Paris!!!!

Very friendly staff, simple and traditional French food, parisien atmosphere. There's often a line out of the restaurant, you will probably have to wait (I don't know I is it possible to make a reservation). Very reasonable prices.

A friend took me to dinner here while I was visiting Paris and it was absolutely delightful. He had described the menu as 'the kind of food your mother makes' as opposed to haute cuisine and it was wonderful and authentic. The atmosphere is unchanged since the 1890s and we shared a table with another couple but felt very much... 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.
