Having dined here a few times with my French husband and son, I have mixed feelings about this very French institution. The interior is a bit opulent and very 'Belle Epoque' but the service is often a bit uptight and austere. The main courses are 'hit or miss' but in general quite satisfactory. The menu choice is very classical French... More

An old style Paris Brasserie with a grand interior which operates around the clock near the Opera district. It is welcoming and a great place to dine and watch the world go by especially for late lunches. The menu includes traditional French seafood platters with lovely fresh oysters and a good selection of brasserie favourites. We had the seafood platter... More

This restaurant is literally around the corner from the opera house so great for a spot of lunch during your walking tour of the city. We had the set menu as we didn't need much from afternoon lunch. It was really well priced at just under 25 euros for two courses without impacting the quality. You can also get deals... More

Because I look young - ( not fat & wealthy ) I was unnoticed for over 10 minutes at the entrance , where no one was at , at all. When I finally reach out to a server to take a look of a menu to see if that's something I was interested and having for my lunch experience. No... More

Had wonderful meal in this beautifully decorated restaurant. Food was excellent, all of our party enjoyed their meals but the lamb was a standout. Seafood platters around the restaurant loomed fantastic. Our waiter was both friendly and efficient. Absolutely recommend.

I have been there a few times, last time was several years ago. I was always impressed by the quality of fish, in particular oysters and raw shellfish. The quality hasn't changed, the service was excellent but not last night...wrong dishes and wine was served, intended to be served to other tables, and finally a bill not including the coffees...

The restaurant's refined decor is a faithful illustration of the Art Nouveau style, with its original mosaics and its crystal Saint-Louis chandeliers a truly Parisian institution located on the Place des Ternes. The head chef prepares a refined, traditional French cuisine using the freshest ingredients. An immensely popular restaurant with both Parisians and discerning tourists, who appreciate beautifully prepared food. --Veritable insitution parisienne de la place des Ternes, son decor raffine est fidele au style "Art Nouveau" avec ses mosaiques d'origine et ses lustres de cristal de Saint-Louis, le Chef de cuisine propose une carte traditionnelle raffinee offrant un large choix de produits frais. Son banc d'ecailles en est d'ailleurs une belle illustration.

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.
