I was having a quick trip in Paris, and was looking forward to having at least one really nice meal. I thought of going the Michelin Star route, but those were booked. Instead I combed reviews for a decently priced, but still good, bistro, and...More

Very nice, cosy restaurant. Very good food. Polite staff, they speak enough English (much better than my French, thank goodness). I think we will be back before we leave. Merci!

The owner likes to recommend food and wine for you. Enjoy it, it is a great evening! Paris has so many wonderful bistros and this is one that we will return to.

This is by far the best restaurant we have been during our 4 days vacation in Paris! Great food all freshly made. The owner is very fliendly and we've got the feeling to be at his place rather than in his restaurant. Very few seats......More

Our dinner was lovely and the wines chosen by the waiter/manager/proprietor (?) worked well with our meal. In traditional French fashion, expect to take your time eating. Our meal started at 7:30pm and we paid two hours later. It is best to make reservations. Highly...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
