Recommended to us by our concierge the staff was very accomodating and the selection was good. The oysters, prawns and snails were a great selection for my first meal in Paris and it was a bonus to have a good selection for our younger children.

Yeap. This is the real thing. When you enter the Bistrot Vivienne, you just go back in time. A classy, original, Parisian bistrot, a wonderful atmosphere get you some 100 years back. We had champagne and sweets there. Everything was exceptional. The staff were polite...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
