A group of us visited Paris- some first timers and others have been several times. We wanted a brunch place that was true to french food but also convenient to the activities for that day. We were staying near these galleries and thought this looked...More

Inside a gallery, it is the typical French restaurant, seating both inside and outside. Food is excellent, I tried a vegetables starter and the unreplaceable French pintade (Guines-fowl's leg), plus wine was great and lotta bread aside. Very satisfied, price was standard for an European...More

We arrived for a late lunch and the place was very crowded with people finishing up their lunch. This place has a very charming look and feels like a classic local place. Maybe it was a bad day...I rarely give bad reviews but the food...More

I was looking for a local restaurant in an area surrounded by tourist places and Japanese restaurants and both the gallery and the restaurant were a good surprise. Food was really delicious to celebrate the last day on Paris.

Lunch menu for less than 20 euro a head! The devilled eggs with homemade mayonnaise reminded my wife of her grandmother. Goose rilettes, great! Roasted maryland of Guinea fowl (pintade) - gamey deliciousness. But the highlight was the 18-month Laguiole! The cheese had pockets of...More

Probably the best place we ate at in Paris over the course of a week. Delicious food, great wine - it's small, out of the way, intimate and quite lovely. Plus, cute waiters.

We stumbled onto this restaurant on "date night" last Friday. Christophe didn't know the Passage Vivienne so we strolled through. We were looking for just a comfortable place for dinner, nothing fancy. And we found exactly that. Le Bougainville is not all fancy but oh...More

This is exactly what you look for when it comes to going to a french bistrot.. All your architecture, food and wine fantasy are reunited in this unique place. Real french fries, no ready made crap.. Very rare to be found especially in such location...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
