It was easy to find the restaurant as it was near the metro stations. The service was good and the food was even better. It was one of the best meals we had in Paris. Delicious 😋

An insult to Brussels which is part of the name and to Paris where it is located. Stopped there at 10.00pm after my meetings ended. Was politely and promptly given a table - but no warmth or sincerity in the greetings. Waiter finally came to take the order. The tartar steak - unprepared was meat marbled with fat. Ground in...

The meal was ok. The portion was quite big and perfect for mussels lovers. But if you want something fresh you should go to Australia instead.

If you come there, you must eat the mussels! The restaurant belongs to a chain, they are all nearly identical! I have been in the one on the Champs Élysées: the local and the menu are exactly the same. I have been there on November, with my fiancé, in a rainy Sunday evening, we did not reserved but in a...

Mussels seemed to be the best things to order as the mussel menu is large and appeared that most people were ordering them. We had prawns cooked in a skillet, very tasty and salmon which was a touch over cooked. Service very quick and drinks reasonably priced. Good value

For 14 euros, one can get a pot full of delicious steamed mussels, fries , bread and a glass of beer. The service was wonderful and is situated in a good location. C'etrait tres bon!

But the food made up for it..our waited seemed rather annoyed that we wanted to share a mussel dish and not have one each., we were travelling that day and didn't want... More

Get the mussels cooked any way you like and a beer. Avoid the greasy fish and chips. Service is decent.

I ordered the mussels which were okay ( I was trying something new...) but my family ordered the fish and chips which were not worth it! For 14 euros it was a small battered piece of fish with a fair size portion of fries and a glass of flat coke...I also noticed too late that the waitress did not give... More

We had a quick stop here (not sure exactly which location we went to in Paris, but it was near Port Maillot) and it was a very nice meal. As New Englanders, we have high expectations for shellfish and this place did not disappoint. It's a great meal that is affordable, casual, and tasty!.

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.
