288 euros spent between 6 people and all starters and mains were wasted! The chicken nachos came out with completely raw pieces of chicken and the steaks were the most fatty pieces of things we ever seen. We had a hair in the chicken fajitas...More

We stumbled upon this restaurant after some aimless wandering. The decor was good but nothing else was. Staff really couldn't be bothered to smile, service was appallingly slow, food tasted like scraps from a dustbin and the prices were extortionate. Please, just don't go there.

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
