Came for lunch with no reservation, and perhaps got the only unreserved table in the restaurant. Lucky that we did! Excellent food, phenomenal service. In fact, the service almost made the amazing food better. We had French onion soup, a beet root special, a cheese...More

We came here on a recommendation, and were not disappointed. We had not reserved but on a chilly Saturday they were very welcoming, and seated us quickly in a room with a warm fire. The restaurant filled up and was busy but not packed. Great...More

We stopped here for a coffee on a Saturday morning when hardly anywhere else in Galerie Vivienne was open. The waiter was very offhand and acted like we were an inconvenience.

We enjoyed my birthday lunch here. We both liked our selections - shrimp for me and scallops for my husband. Service was also very good. The restaurant is located at the entrance to the Galleria.

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
