I loved this place! I love how unassuming it is from the lane way entrance. I love how understated the decor is, with very simple yet interesting art on the wall, and almost a stark dining room or very minimalist. The dishes are presented the...More

The restaurant is very low profile, we walked pass it few times still could not find the place. Food is excellent, I had a happy afternoon here. Worth the money and it deserves the 2 stars.

One of the best dining experiences, I have ever had! Perfect and exciting food, polite and friendly staff - a bit expensive, but worth every penny. Will most definitely come back, when I'm visiting Paris again! The selection of wines is incredible!

Very small and special place, within an also very special passage. While food and service are outstanding, it is way too pricey for a 2 star of this quality. You pay for a 3 stars what you can get on a good 1 star restaurant....More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle

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
