It feels very authentic at Le Mesturet. It's a good sound level in a good way. The food is as you imagine in a French restaurant. Everything you want is there, from classic dishes to vegetarian options. We got there by chance and got the...More

I love the cosy atomosphere of the Mesturet. When I go there I always feel like home. The food is excellent while staying affordable. In short, you will definitely "get what you pay for"!

We stopped in the bar for drinks a couple of days beforehand and decided to come back for dinner. A very good decision! I highly recommend the lamb pastilla. Our waitress was really friendly and helpful, despite it being a busy Friday.

Been there annually for the past 3 years. Helpful, friendly staff and outrageous profiterols. Veal stew is excellent and poulette special was terrific. A nice touch of the country in Paris.

This is a nice bistro with good traditional food in a typical café setting. Great choice of wines by the glass, and in carafe. Waiting staff is attentive and efficient. Just a few steps from the Opera house and other touristy places... refreshing and genuine.

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
