A place for tourists? Seems like they assume you wont come back again. We come here because of recommendation on a webisite. However in the resto, the waiter told us an different offer, so we ordered as he explained. Later on when we found they overcharged on the bill, the manager said something totally different and told us, I don't... More

Great location for a cocktail and small plate before the performance and a lovely finale for dinner or brunch as well. Open also between performances. Service is not rocket fast, but if you have the time to enjoy, plan on it!

For Christmas Eve, the restaurant proposed a fixed menu with four plates (88 euros) and two options for each step. From the reservation and prepayment to the dinner itself, everything was perfect. The dinner was amazing. The coquille Saint Jacque and the bûche noel were a dream in my mouth. It really worth the money.

We visited this excellent restaurant after the ballet performance in the same opera house. It was very convenient to simply walk down a couple of flights of stairs to find our table waiting for us. The prix fixe menu was impressive and every course was delicious. The service couldn't have been better. It was a wonderful experience and not out-of-the-park... More

As a surprise I was taken to this restaurant. I found the decor with a combination of old and new just beautiful. The great advantage of this restaurant is that they left some space between tables, which is nice if you are a party of 4. The food is good, especially their desserts (opera cake) are tasteful. Main course of... More

Food was really good. If you are planning to attend a ballet presentation at the opera, having dinner in this place prior to going upstairs for the show is a great experience.

Amazing building inside and out. Friendly staff and we couldn't fault the service. Great time of year to visit as it wasn't to busy (Early Nov)

We were looking for an iconic paris experience outside so we chose L'Opera. While this restaurant seemingly comes highly recommended, we sat outside in an enclosed garden that was made up of sections of white blocks and hedges to block you from the busy outside traffic that after a while felt like a pen. I'm not sure what everyone was... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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 another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
