While we are in Paris, we generally seek out French Restaurants. What restaurant is more classic French than Bistrot Vivienne? This restaurant is on the edge of Passage Vivienne, the most beautiful Passsge in Paris. First of all - everyone in the restaurant was French!...More

This can be a busy restaurant given its location, food is excellent with an imaginative menu but not particularly cheap. Not your average bistro by any means. Service can be slow and not always enthusiastic. Not a place for a quiet dinner.

We stopped here by chance for lunch on a drizzly day, and were delightfully surprised by the lovely atmosphere and delicious food. I could have stayed much longer and definitely would have loved to enjoy dessert but we had an appointment to get to so...More

Busy bistrot with a great menu of French produce, friendly efficient staff ( who spoke English), and lovely atmosphere. Good wine list. The pork fillet Mignon was excellent, as was the accompanying potato with truffle cream. Good dessert selection too - the home made nougat...More

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
