We enjoyed my birthday lunch here. We both liked our selections - shrimp for me and scallops for my husband. Service was also very good. The restaurant is located at the entrance to the Galleria.

I have to say we enjoyed a superb family dinner here on New Years Eve. We loved the Parisian ambiance of the restaurant. The staff were very attentive. The scotch beef was cooked to perfection and the cod with lentils was tender and tasty. The...More

We ate our last dinner of our trip here and had a great meal. Salad with grilled chicken was excellent as was all the other meals. Service was really good. Really nice atmosphere on a warm summer evening. Hope to return.

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
