Great atmosphere and service. We waited in line outside the restaurant for 20 minutes to get a table (Monday night). If you struggle with French then you will find it challenging. The waiters are full on flat out and don't have much time for customer interaction but are brilliant to watch. Our food was below par and came out really... More

With its typical French train station look and typical French waiting staff, great ambiance to go with excellent food. Menu is typical traditional French. Waiters take orders on the table mat. During rush hours one may have to share tables with strangers., but that adds to the typical ambience as well. Definitely worth trying

This restaurant is an experience and every visit to Paris includes coming here. I brought my family and all agreed this was the best meal of out trip to Paris. Don't expect anything other than plain fare. Do not expect pleasant waiter service. You will be seated with others. You will wait in a long queue. We saw a fight... More

If you want an authentic French restaurant with serious heritage , go to this place. It is big, lots of people, very lively ,good French home made style food. Waiters are great , your order is written on the paper table cover. Families, real French family place.

Our family party of 10 were taken here by a local resident. The service was quick and efficient and our waiter had a sense of humour if you did not stand on your dignity. (A ten year-old girl with us could not make up her mind what to order; the waiter said "I'll come back later, I'm working until 10"... More

This was my third and last visit. The restaurant is historical and the food is average but for the pricy Paris it's ok. This evening though we faced something that could not believe in our eyes. One of the waiter while cleaning the table of people that just left the restaurant he physically put the forks and knifes in a... More

Visited with my family for lunch. The restaurant seems to have quite a history. Very traditional French cafe setting. Food is cheap but taste is decent. Portions are quite small. Service is prompt and polite. They have English menu. Prices are decent considering its Paris. We ordered 6snails, Sauteed Veal and Duck confit and Spaghetti for the kids and half... More

Look- this place has an amazing history and a line out the door. Go for them both....but the food is average and can be hit or miss. We were staying just down the street and, with three daughters- the wine was good, the menu had something they would eat and, at least on our visit, the wait staff were engaging... More

Don't waste your time. You line up for 20-40 minutes for very average to poor, over cooked food. Nothing special about it. We sat next to a nasty lady that didn't like sharing her table.. you're sat where there is space. We didn't mind this, it added to the atmosphere of the place. Service is quick and generally good but... 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.
