While staying at the Le Meridien in Paris, a hotel employee recommended this restaurant as authentic French cuisine. He was correct! The staff was very friendly and accommodating as was the owner. The food was delicious and the portions huge! The owner was so nice and even gave us two free drinks of an apple whiskey which I mistook for... More

Went with a couple of friends. The food is delicious and is authentic French cuisine. Small and cosy you see most clients are locals, which is a good sign. Be aware that portions are huge (even starters) so ask before you order a ton of stuff or you'll regret it later. Will be back

Four of us ate here, and the menu and food qualitywas above average. As others have remarked, the portions are huge, at least double normal sizes. This may seem an act of generosity by the management but we found it detracted from our enjoyment. An average plate size was alwys completely covered, for example a slice of pate which would...

We went for lunch; i had the lamb with home made mashed potatoes, my husband took the chorizo. Everything was excellent ! Plates are very big so i recommend to order an entree and no appetizer. Service was excellent and the waiter is funny and professional :-)

We researched several restaurants for our special dinner that night. The reviews for this restaurant had stood out and we decided to try it. The reviews were spot on. I started with a lovely salad while my wife ordered the foie gras. The helpings were so large that we had to stop and save room for the main course. The... More

The ingredients really shine. The thing we were not prepared for was the size of the portions. I have been pleased all week that the... More

My husband and I were visiting from Texas and the trainer of the crossfit box (Grande Arche) highly recommended this place for dinner. We would have never found this place without having been told about it. It's small, cozy, and laid back. Deciphering the menu was an adventure (all French, good sign) but the staff was incredibly helpful, and gave... 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.
