Stayed at Le Grand Hotel and decided to try resident restaurant Cafe de la Paix on our last night. What a mistake. The most unfriendly, unhelpful experience in all of Paris. It's like they strived to make sure we weren't happy. Surly and unaccomodating maitre d, indifferent waiters. Food was okay at best. Don't waste your time, so many better... More

The restaurant is quite large, and despite having a number of empty tables at 9pm on a Sunday, they saw fit to seat us in the back corner. Once finally at our table the service was ok. Food was good - what you'd expect at a corner cafe - but not great.

This is a place with high prices mostly for the location, so you are going to pay more for your food, but they don't skimp on the quality, i only had meat dishes here so i cannot speak about the fish that they serve, but i can safely say that you can eat a few exceptional things like the tartare,...

Go for the atmosphere! The food was good but you're paying for the location. We got a table in the lounge area for a more casual meal. No wait for an early dinner and drinks (around 5 pm). This place is beautiful. Our server spoke enough English to communicate our orders. I'd return if I'm in Paris again.

Was sent here by our hotel, not it was ok. Food was good, nothing special and very costly, and not a place we will go back. Service was excellent, but we wont go back. Unless you are going to the opera and need a place close by, look for something else.

Great eggs, sausages and fresh bakery and juices. Beautiful place with American and oriental breakfast buffet. Little expensive but worth it.

This is a must do in the summer in Paris. Sitting outside with the view of the Opera while the city flows past you is a superb experience! Food is traditional and deliciously french!

Café de la Paix is full of history. Surroundings are superb, service is excellent and what I had was scrumptious. Had coffee and a slice of vanilla mille-feuille. Price might be steep, but it was worth every cent spent.

When we walked into Café de la Paix just to the right of Palais Garnier, we had absolutely no clue what we would uncover inside. It was raining and we were staying at the W Hotel just across the road. And we were hungry. We were certainly not prepared to be welcomed with such grandiose and opulence. The cafe, part... 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.
