The limited number of dishes on the menu is a good signe ! Everything we had was very fresh, nicely presented and flavored. The decor is warm and service is nice and professional. A very nice address to have good French light cuisine.

This is a very nice, traditional, French style restaurant. The atmosphere and service were very good and the menu appealing without being overly extensive. I had scallops followed by creme brulee, both of which were excellent. Two of us ate for €80 including two courses,...More

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

toptable Dining Awards 2009 - Runner Up: Best International VenueLes Alchimistes restaurant in the heart of Paris is a warm and trendy spot across from the Opera Comique and close to some great shopping, so it’s a perfect place for a shopping lunch, pre-theatre meal or evening out. The chic décor is a combination of modern mirrors, sleek seating and splashes of colourful lighting with original moulding and details. Upstairs there’s a bar and VIP lounge. Chef Stephane Ewangelista favours a menu rooted in tradition and flavoured with the tastes of the south of France, in beautifully-presented dishes. The wine list features some superb ones by the glass.
