It has a true family atmosphere and offers a wide choice of dishes for all tastes, with fondue and raclette being specialities.

In fact this specialised restaurant offers fresh fruits and salads in several original combinations guaranteed to make your mouth water. This tempting location is also to be found on the boulevard des Italiens, as is the following…
The eye-catching, glass fronted, modern décor splendour of Le Grand B restaurant is an irresistible invitation to step inside and share in the contemporary spirit. The downstairs is a café style restaurant. The upstairs area specialises in grills and spit roasts and has an open kitchen where you can watch the meat slowly turning on the griddle and roaster oven.
Au Petit Riche, on the rue le Peletier, was established in 1854. Naturally it embodies the ambience of old Paris, with engraved mirrors, brass and velvet. Combining classic French cuisine with a chic bistro tradition, it is simply not to be missed, and is famous for its Gillardeau oysters.
