I ate here my first night in Paris. It's directly across the street from the Best Western Première Opera Faubourg. I don't remember my main course, however my appetizer, Tuna Tartare, was so good. It was layered with thin, crispy sheets of Parmesan cheese.

Was close to our hotel and went here for a late night dinner. The food was basic bistrofood, nothing exceptional or great, but wasn't terrible either. The service was old-school Parisian, stiff but professional. The surroundings were charming with a art nouveau elegance.

We stopped by to grab some food. This is place where I first ate Escargots de Bourgogne (snails baked in their shells with parsley butter). It was very delicious, unfortunately just was not enough.

Didn't eat here but called in for a few drinks late on a Saturday. Lively and friendly with excellent choice of wines and beers. Staff were all really friendly as was the owner.

Set off quite late from our hotel, turned the corner and quite literally, settled for the first place we came across. Chose from the 34€ menu, which included an aperitif (we had kir) and a carafe of very good house wine. I had the snails in parsley butter, sirloin steak and creme brûlée. My partner had the same except for... More

We had asked for directions earlier in the day and as the gentlemen were very helpful, it looked good and wasn't far from our hotel we went back for dinner - appreciating that they were open late (on a Saturday).

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood 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, theatres, 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.
