We came here for lunch but in the first place for their famous Cancale oysters. We ordered oysters for starters and rib eye steak, (medium rare) main course. The oysters were very disappointing, I ate better in a lot of places in Paris. My steak...More

Really nice place, service couldn't have been more helpful, moving us away from the smokers. Food was good, nice foie gras , steak tartare. The linguine and risotto were ok but a little bland. Small but nice wine list, reasonably priced for the area.

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
