Although living in the neighborhood, never came to visiting this place before. Lucky to get in without reservation on a "calm" august evening (although the restaurant quickly filled up). We had two times the menu and we're pleasantly surprised so can only confirm the excellent...More

Authentic French cuisine at reasonable price. The one server worked the entire restaurant effectively and with professionalism. Food was delivered in timely manner. Recommended.

Cul de Poule is a small restaurant at towards the top of this great foodie street in the 9th arrondissement. The area is known as SOPI (South of Pigalle) or Nouvelle Athene and is worth exploring. The menu is small, suggesting food is cooked from...More

We ate at Cul de Poule on a Thursday evening. Great food - especially the swordfish. Only negative was the bizarre music choices that the owner kept switching between on his iPod. One minute Van Halen, the next Donna Summer. It is one thing to...More

Not much to look at, but don't let their understated decor fool you, very interesting menu, excellent service, and a thoroughly enjoyable dinner. Beautifully dressed food, very tasty and reasonable (€200 for a three course meal for four with two bottles of wine).

One of the best meals I had in Paris. Cul de Poule has great atmosphere, great service, and exceptional food. Modern, small-ish plates bring new vibrancy to traditional French cuisine. Service, food and atmosphere were all great. Prices very good for the quality of food....More

This restaurant was recommended by a Parisienne friend and it did not disappoint. Don't expect a lengthy menu as you would in a standard bistro targeted at tourists. There were a few choices for each section of the menu, immediately a sign of the quality....More

Cul de Poule is rated highly by Lonely Planet as well as other reviewers and these laudatory reviews are quite accurate. This small (indeed it is) restaurant is encountered as you go down the hill from Sacre Cour towards the Pigalle Metro station. It is...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
