Recently my husband and I visited from Las Vegas, stayed at the hotel next door (L'echiquier) we figured we can try to eat there before starting our day! When we got there it was totally empty it was around lunch! So that's already saying something! We go in and this older lady look at us and just said bonjour! Annoyed,... More

No frills decoration. Authentic ambiance. Classic French bistrot fare. Very well prepared. All fresh ingredients. French fries are hand cut. Excellent wine choice. I almost never write this but this place is an excellent value for the money. Simple dishes but high quality. Photo is of the escargots I had as a starter. Yummy.

We ate twice at this small bar/brasserie. It is a typical small, informal Brasserie run by the owners. 3 course menus are either 20 or 25 euros, great portion size and excellent quality. It isn't the sort of place you get dressed up for. It gets used by younger people and after-work types for a bite or a drink, but... More

I cannot fault this place, the food, the service, the hosts were all excellent. We were treated like members of the family! Compared to other restuarants we have visited in the area it was incredibly cheap despite the superb qualtity of food we recieved. 100% worth a visit for anyone who wants to experience the real heart of Paris

During a day visit to Paris I stumbled across Un jour a Paris completely by chance; the restaurant is not flashy or refined but offers truly traditional and flavourful dishes in a relaxed setting. After hovering by the door and not being greeted we decided to seat ourselves amongst a few tables occupied by locals. The waitress saved us (&... More

Amazing little Parisian gem. Staff (owner) was incredibly helpful and friendly and served up food that was amazing- at very reasonable price! Our hotel was just up the street however would most definitely recommend a Metro trip here.

A mere few steps from our hotel, this little gem was screaming for us to come in. Luckily, all restaurants in Europe offer up menus so you don't have to go in and guess as to whether you will like it. As we were perusing over the menu, a man came by and said, "ah, Americans! Can I translate anything... More

We chose this restaurant as nearby to our hotel and based on TripAdvisor recommendations. GREAT CHOICE! This is a small restaurant, hidden away, that does great food, and amazing wine for a reasonable price ( for Paris!). The owner was lovely - really helpful and friendly, making recommendations on wine for us, without ripping us off. He also shared with... More

We were going to a restaurant a few blocks away recommended in my tour book but the line was out the door. Looked at TripAdvisor and found this place a few blocks away. The six of us (4 adults / 2 kids) were seated immediately in the small restaurant with a nice sidewalk table. The owner and his wife were... More

Had a later dinner on a saturday night (10pm) but the restaurant was still quite quiet. Attentive service from a husband and wife team that put up with our terrible attempts at ordering in french. No English menu but both were fluent in English so not a problem for those who are equally challenged. Having said that, we were the... More

Staying in Opera / Bourse

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.
