We went with a family of 5, kids 12,9 and 7 and no french at all. We somewhat put off by many french reviews criticising, but our server was lovely, and enjoyed my sons attempts at French. Food was good 'farmhouse' fare, seafood platter was great. We would come back.

It is a good place to sit down and have a coffee but if you are looking for a large selection of meals for brunch you might want to try another place. The prices are average and it gets a bit cramped when the place is full

Au Rocher de Canale is situated on Rue Montorgueil which is lined with many restaurants. I'd dinner there because of its fame and history. The restaurant was very lively and popular with locals. The food was absolutely decent. But the problem was the slow service. After finishing my foie gras entrée, I waited for almost half an hour before my... More

I had a rather interesting experience dining here as an asian, I was staying around Sentier, popped out for a quick lunch here with friends. I ordered a entrecôte and asked for medium rare, however, when it arrived, it is rare and almost un-cook, so me and my friend politely ask the waiter to take it back and cook more... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, which was convenient and close by in the les marais. The happy hour wine was very tasty, so was the rest of the wine that evening. It is a very casual place, but full of charm. The staff were attentive, while busy, but showed genuine helpfulness with the menu. We came back our... More

Our group of 12 visited this restaurant to celebrate a friends 60th birthday in mid July. We were seated upstairs, in pleasant surroundings. The staff was attentive to our needs on a busy evening. Some of our group had entrees, each of which was very good, with the escargot being a hit. The most popularly chosen main meal was the... 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.
