Visited here early evening as was drawn in by the extensive menu ad offers. On entering the empty (bar 1 couple) I asked if we cuold sit in one of the window booths, only to be dismissed and shepherded to a tiny table in a dark corner. Menus were given to us and our order taken - only to be... More

This place looks attractive from the outside, but there's a high chance you'll be disappointed once you actually order your food. I didn't check any reviews so I just came in with a bunch of friends with high expectations. Now the food itself was not bad, we got burgers with chips and some orange juice. There are a lot of...

Walking along we saw this restaurant and the fact they did a fixed price menu of 9.50 which for the area it was in was a bargain. We were shown to a seat in a booth I went to sit down and was told no, he wanted my husband to sit there for some reason, which made no sense as... More

Please AVOID this tourist trap of a place. We went into this "restaurant" without checking reviews first, which was my mistake, Very poor quality food at an above average price. The food was luke warm and the beer tasted bad. Do yourself a favour and find some where else - anywhere else...

I am honestly still in shock from the service I received. I have been so impressed with the service and friendliness I have received in Paris until this. I ordered a meal... Which came out wrong, when I notified the waitress she apologised and took it back to the manager, whose reply was... We will not get the meal we... More

The decoration is as if you are in USA. The service is long inspite only few costumers. The quantity of the food is there but not the quality.

The bar looks to be a TGI Friday type chain. TG I don't have food poisoning! The service was exemplary particularly from the waiter with the bald head who was most accommodating and amicable. The biggest problem with this restaurant is that it doesn't quite know what it is. On one hand looks like a sports bar, another it could... More

When in Paris, you should really TRY to enjoy yourself and bask in the culinary marvels that surround you on each and every street. With over 20,000 restaurants in the city ( yes 20 THOUSAND), you really shouldn't have too many people who complain about not being able to find something to eat. Unfortunately, sometimes American visitors are o turned... More

Road bike past this place in afternoon & saw they serve mexican food. Decided to walk there for dinner. Should have looked up on tripadvisor first. Chicken & beef nachos were remarkably bad. Found hair in the guac. No cheese at all. Clearly not even nachos rather an over cooked hodge podge of vegetables with chips on the side. Carrots... 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.
