Le Grand Cafe Capucine is the only late night option there. Stick to the the simple selections. Neither the service nor the food are memorable.

The food was delicious, especially the Onion Soup and the Creme Brulee. The atmosphere was convivial and the waiters were attentive enough.

The food was of good quality and taste: no complaints, but no great praise either. There was nothing wrong with it and it was competently prepared, but I've had much better too. Service was good and the people were very pleasant. That being said, the...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

I wouldn't consider there to be "a good selection". Though there are some things a vegetarian could choose on the menu, I'd recommend you find another restaurant. There are much better options nearby.

Bonjour ! No dress code , this is a tourist area ! Maybe on a Saturday evening , you would be expected to wear ''formal but casual '' as you may see people coming from the Opera in the winter !

The restaurant's refined decor is a faithful illustration of the Art Nouveau style, with its original mosaics and its crystal Saint-Louis chandeliers a truly Parisian institution located on the Place des Ternes. The head chef prepares a refined, traditional French cuisine using the freshest ingredients. An immensely popular restaurant with both Parisians and discerning tourists, who appreciate beautifully prepared food. --Veritable insitution parisienne de la place des Ternes, son decor raffine est fidele au style "Art Nouveau" avec ses mosaiques d'origine et ses lustres de cristal de Saint-Louis, le Chef de cuisine propose une carte traditionnelle raffinee offrant un large choix de produits frais. Son banc d'ecailles en est d'ailleurs une belle illustration.
