As a surprise I was taken to this restaurant. I found the decor with a combination of old and new just beautiful. The great advantage of this restaurant is that they left some space between tables, which is nice if you are a party of 4. The food is good, especially their desserts (opera cake) are tasteful. Main course of... More

Food was really good. If you are planning to attend a ballet presentation at the opera, having dinner in this place prior to going upstairs for the show is a great experience.

Amazing building inside and out. Friendly staff and we couldn't fault the service. Great time of year to visit as it wasn't to busy (Early Nov)

We were looking for an iconic paris experience outside so we chose L'Opera. While this restaurant seemingly comes highly recommended, we sat outside in an enclosed garden that was made up of sections of white blocks and hedges to block you from the busy outside traffic that after a while felt like a pen. I'm not sure what everyone was... More

The food was amazing. The chef prepared Act 1 (first course), 2 (main course), and 3 (dessert) in great detail. Each course was superb. Service was excellent.

First evening in Paris and after using this restaurant a few times with guests tried it personally and not disappointed. Great menu selection, with starters of sea bream and prawn ravioli followed by rissoto and veal - all beautifully presented and delicious. Staff very attentive and friendly, all outside on a wonderful, warm evening. Pretty much a perfect meal!

We enjoyed the Sunday buffet after a noon concert. There was a variety of food, all well prepared. The restaurant atmosphere was pleasant. If we are in Paris again, we will plan to return.

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.
