Steak was rubbery, appetizer was lackluster. Quality of the food was at the bottom; worst restaurant we visited. And the prices charged made the experience that much worse. You've been warned, stay away!!!!

French entree/mains that include steak, steak tartare, cod, eggplant, and chicken. Pretty limited children's menu. Good reasonably priced wines. Slow (but typical French service) which is ok with me, but a bit tiresome for children ages 5-13

We'd visited this restaurant on a previous visit to Paris and was not disappointed second time around. The restaurant was busy, but the staff were very attentive and made us feel very welcome. Lovely traditional French food and a great choice of wines.

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
