Took a group here and most enjoyed it. The waiter was extremely efficient in taking our order and the food arrived very quickly and together. Noisy location with bus diesel engines idling at the red traffic lights quite annoying

Solid, reliable, classic brasserie cuisine. Friendly service. Near the station so very handy if you're going back on Eurostar. I went on a Sunday lunch and it was packed with French families, always a good sign.

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
