Food was so aromatic & delicately prepared. Every bite was amazing. I had fennel with prosciutto, wrapped stuffed cod & eggplant caviar. Wine was delicious also. Relaxing beautiful atmosphere.

The place is located in a touristy area, but kind of away from traffic. It has nice French style interior and outside tables that are in an alley. The service was OK for Europe. The food and drinks were very disappointing, we ordered red wine...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
