We walked in about 9 pm and got a great table on the second floor with a view of the street. Our servers we great. Typical french meal in that it is very relaxing and takes about 90 minutes. Our server recommended a good wine, $30.00, we had steak frites, Taglioni Gamas and onion soup. All great, really liked the... More

The multi-lingual staff is both friendly and efficient. The oysters platters are outstanding (according to my wife!!!) along with everything we ordered. My only regret after seeing it on the next table, was not ordering the huge seafood platter.

The décor / interior is lovely: you feel like you want to stay there longer or come back again. The staff is great: no rush or pressure. The wine list looks limited for wine lovers. The menu offers standard dishes with some sea food specialisation. The presentation is decent and appetising. The place looks a bit touristy, so the prices... More

Before trying the Capucines, I thought 24 hr restaurants were all about burgers and kebabs. Here instead I had an excellent steak tartare at 2am with impeccable service.

Went there to have the famous sea food platter and we weren't disappointed. We had the best mixed sea food platter ever, everything about it was good.Great place in a lively avenue next to the Opera.My rating 8/10.

Am pleased with the food and service!! Ordered set lunch - oysters & beef cheek!! Nicely cooked with the right density; not undercooked nor overcooked ... one of the best I tried! The price is a little pricey but it is worth it compared to other restaurants which can be overly decorated and compromises on the quality of the food..

had typical, unhealthy..., option : snails and steak the snails could have been a little hotter but the steak was tender and tasty. I asked for vegetables (this is France...) but got a very nice fresh casserole of vegetables and not just rabbit stuff would go again for sure

The most expensive meal I have ever had! Walked in off the street with friends for our last night in Paris. Seafood platter (shared with a friend) was amazing and HUGE! wish I could get a doggy bag! Freshest of fresh, everything was wonderful, and the atmosphere in the beautiful Art Nouveau room was lovely! Definitely come again, but will... More

Decoration Art Deco is nice. But it's the only advantage of this place: the food is ready in 5 min (you surely understand what it's mean), the risotto is not a risotto - it's an overcooked rice which is purely uneatable, raviolis are not fresh, undercooked and barely eatable too. And of course everything is overpriced because of the location.... More

Perfect spot in a traditional Parisian brasserie for a boozy lunch and a bit of people watching. Not cheap but then not silly expensive either. Food and wine were spot on. Only gripe was that the place was all a bit dusty, I guess it adds to the character in some ways but really it could do with a bit... 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.
