Four of us ate here, and the menu and food qualitywas above average. As others have remarked, the portions are huge, at least double normal sizes. This may seem an act of generosity by the management but we found it detracted from our enjoyment. An average plate size was alwys completely covered, for example a slice of pate which would...

We went for lunch; i had the lamb with home made mashed potatoes, my husband took the chorizo. Everything was excellent ! Plates are very big so i recommend to order an entree and no appetizer. Service was excellent and the waiter is funny and professional :-)

We researched several restaurants for our special dinner that night. The reviews for this restaurant had stood out and we decided to try it. The reviews were spot on. I started with a lovely salad while my wife ordered the foie gras. The helpings were so large that we had to stop and save room for the main course. The... More

The ingredients really shine. The thing we were not prepared for was the size of the portions. I have been pleased all week that the... More

My husband and I were visiting from Texas and the trainer of the crossfit box (Grande Arche) highly recommended this place for dinner. We would have never found this place without having been told about it. It's small, cozy, and laid back. Deciphering the menu was an adventure (all French, good sign) but the staff was incredibly helpful, and gave... More

Looks nothing from the outside but hidden treasures await you inside. 100% French but this is as we hoped for in Paris. The portion sizes are huge and many items are homemade. The owner and staff went out of their way to welcome and accommodate us, translating when needed. Lots of complimentary home made apple brandy and cognac to round... 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.
