Nice food, quite classic but well executed, in a very top location, historical and central. Good French wines. Depardieu is the owner.

Stylish historical building. We were seated outside. Service traditional and very friendly and forthcoming. Excellent wine. Very nice food of high quality, even though not high end. But very nice. Prices on the high side.

I recently visited Paris on business and went to La Fontaine Gallion for dinner. We were a party of six and used one of the private dining rooms upstairs. These are great if you want to have discussions without prying ears but do lack a...More

Been there for a business dinner, its location is pretty impressive in a cozy, elegant, small square in Paris. Another extremely positive aspect is represented by the waiters, hundreds, all smart, well-mannered and impeccable. The negative sides: food is rather ok, surely not unforgettable, and...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
