Four of us ate here, and the menu and food qualitywas above average. As others have remarked, the portions are huge, at least double normal sizes. This may seem an act of generosity by the management but we found it detracted from our enjoyment. An...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
