We had lunch here with friends. It is a great location, looking directly at the memorial at Bastille. Food was great and the service exceptional. The perfect long lunch. Highest recommendation!

Because we had booked a ticket for the opera, we had to found a decent restaurant to go to before the opera started. Service was very moderate with lots of faults from the waiters. Also the quality of the food was moderate. You see that...More

I am usually wary of restaurants right next to big theatres, as they tend to be overpriced - and sacrifice quality...but it was raining and just too appealing to be within 30 meters of the Opera ahead of the show. We only had a small...More

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards

Brasserie "Les Grandes Marches" is right by the Opéra Bastille and has been through a seriously befitting update since the new owner took over in the summer of 2012.The lounge spirit is out and the hallmark composed class and lighting that define great brasseries is back. The Art Deco influence is undeniable and the spirit intertwines with the Opera and its "grandes marches" (great steps) that gave this establishment its name. Once you step into Les Grandes Marches, the word that comes to mind is serenity. You leave the Bastille's hustle and bustle behind, loosen up and take your time to enjoy life on the handsome, firm, fleshy benches and watch the waiters' ballet among the curving and broken lines around the room – starting with the curving grand staircase that smacks of a tux-and-tie dinner on a transatlantic liner.
