We stopped in for lunch and had excellent meals, including the best boudin noir we've had over multiple trips across France. This is a cool restaurant tucked away in an alley with several other spots. The seating is tight so either come early or make reservations, you will not be disappointed. Food is on the expensive side, but the flavors... More

Great recommendation from hotel concierge; unprepossessing from the outside, it's like stepping back in time. Good French (slightly abrasive) service. The food is the star. Oh and the wines. Not fancy smancy, but I'm a bit over all that these days. Do have the Mont Blanc desert. And the chorizo. And the hot sourdough bread.

Had a great lunch here recently. Extremely charming and friendly staff. They couldn't have been more helpful. We had a 6 mouth old in a buggy with us. The food was excellent with a limited menu. Highly recommend a visit.

Super French place: authentic and tasty cuisine, furnishing that transports you 50 years back (in a good way) and friendly service (but not too much, we are still in Paris ;). I had foie gras as a starter, fish with tandoori sauce as a main and a crazily delicious Mont Blanc as a dessert. Good wines, fair prices. A classic... More

Been to this place twice now. Great food and exceptional service. The wine is reasonably priced and the recommendations so far have been very good. I love this place, the food, the atmosphere and the way they present the menu on a chalk board. Very recommended.

Second night in Paris treating adult kids to a week away from home. Racines was on our "To-Do" list and happened to be 75 metres from our accommodation. Others have commented on the food and wine and I generally agree. I will just say that our evening was delightful and satisfying.

I was in the area and had read about Racines in the Passage, so I swung by. I was certainly not disappointed, and would go again if I was right there, but I would not make it a destination. That said, the plat was pied de cochon and was perfectly cooked, alongside a thin pork chop the way the French... More

It's so welcoming to come through the doors of this restaurant. The place is small but the decor is warm and inviting, not loud and flashy so having a meal here is relaxing and enjoyable. They are attentive and efficient which made the meal even more agreable! As you can tell by the name, most of the dishes are centered... More

Small, funky restaurant in a charming alley. Ate there twice, the food was really good and I'll happily return. In addition to the food, I must say the staff was fantastic. They gave me a treat.

We returned to Racines after a wonderful meal a few years go. This time, things seemed standard, if we well cooked, and even the wine this time was nothing special. There are so many fine Loire wines, and they one picked by the server was not one of them. It was a pleasant, local place to be, but not something... 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.
