The decoration is the one of a classic French bistrot: warm and cozy, the way we like it. It could be in the countryside, but no it is right in the centre of Paris. And the food, simply delicious. Reasonably priced wines and generous portions....More

If you want to try some more exquisite food, this place is quite suitable for your needs. It is a really stereotypical french elevated parisienne restaurant. So the food is good but relly expensive, and you have to ignore the fact that the waiters are...More

We went here twice during our stay once for lunch and once for dinner . It was really good traditional French food and we enjoyed it very much. One thing that was not exactly French but outstanding was the cheese cake - 👏👏👏👏

It's a bustling bistro in the 2nd arrondismant. Classic fare. Wanted it to be better than it was. Heavy handed with seasonings and butter. Eggplant appetizer was okay, not great. Fish was okay, not great. Overall, good/average bistro fare but nothing memorable. Waitstaff is very...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
