Paris is literally lined with thousands of terrific restaurants. I especially enjoy Paris in the summer, as its very quiet and you can find your way around very easily. That being said, I would not recommend this place for anything other than the use of WIFI..... Paris itself is a Dream.... this place ISN'T.... Definitely NOT recommended.....

First of all it has nothing connected with Paris, but that apart the, the food is nothing special, very expensive and the place is dark and too busy to relax. Particularly the Toilets were very dirty. With the money you pay here you can get a much better service and food in Paris

I was not shocked to see all the negatives about this restaurant. I will not re-say what other users have already come foward with but putting it very simply to you. -- The waiter is completely arrogant and will ignore you -- terrible service of seating .... terrible service overall... Thank goodness all I had was a beer here. Even... More

I can't understand why this cafe is not crowded. Seems it doesn't have a good marketing. We enjoyed our time here. Very friendly stuff. Great music. A lot of space.

We ended up dining at The American Dream after a long night of travelling and having just arrived in Paris. Very hungry, we were attracted by the 'fixed price lunch menu'. The hostess of the restaurant was very pleasant and invited us to store our small travel bags in a locked room. The problems started as soon as we were... More

You should go here to get some junk food and cheap drinks. At the same time you get good nostalgic music in a typical American environment. Good service, simple and what we expect. Not fine dining, but the atmosphere is good and a nice place for a food stop.

I really have to quit going to places that are American themed. They are NEVER good. I decided to go to this place cuz I was feeling a lil homesick. And wanted a good drink. I mean how can you screw up booze?!? This place can. When you walk in you are greeted by a 'hostess' and they usher you... More

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...

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.
