I booked elsewhere but cancelled there and came here. After all who wants to eat in an empty restaurant, even if it has good reviews? Here, some customers were sitting and chatting over a glass of wine, and I went in. The customers inside are...More

We ate our last dinner of our trip here and had a great meal. Salad with grilled chicken was excellent as was all the other meals. Service was really good. Really nice atmosphere on a warm summer evening. Hope to return.

Food was so aromatic & delicately prepared. Every bite was amazing. I had fennel with prosciutto, wrapped stuffed cod & eggplant caviar. Wine was delicious also. Relaxing beautiful atmosphere.

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
