Inaugurated on May 5th, 1862 by Empress Eugenie, the Café de la Paix is a mythical venue in the capital city, known all around the world.
Based on seasonal products, the menu changes regularly according to which products arrive. Eschewing easy ploys, it believes in revisiting the very essence of gastronomy.

When fair weather returns, the Café de la Paix extends its terrace to face the flamboyant Opera-Garnier.
Smooth waffles, traditional jams, homemade ginger bread, an avalanche of Tagada strawberries and marshmallows: for its new Sunday brunch, the Café de la Paix invites grownups to step back into their childhood memories filled with its sweet flavours.
Under Laurent André’s leadership, our restaurant serves a brunch that gives pride to fresh products prepared on the premises: crispy viennoiserie pastries, piping hot crêpes right off the stove, traditional marmalades, a dessert buffet of outstanding diversity and candy in abundance. More than enough to wallow in childhood nostalgia! The whole spread also includes an imposing savoury and seafood buffet, meat carved while you wait and a set of “family special” dishes. And since it really has the parents in mind, the Café de la Paix has added a “children’s corner”, where the little ones can play during the meal as they explore the capital city and its cultural riches – while letting the grownups fully enjoy this trip back to the flavours of their early years.

The oyster bar
The oyster bar at Café de la Paix offers you a selection of outstanding seafood and shellfish.
Oysters, lobsters, langoustines and a great many other sea products are prepared upon request by our shellfish waiter Arezki Ounissi, who won the Second Prize 2007 and the Grand Prize 2008 in the Léon Beyer Cup at the European Oyster Opening Contest. He was also awarded the insignia of Knight of Agricultural Valour in 2010 at the same contest.
This expert has the utmost respect for sea products, to ensure that you can enjoy the full range of their flavours. This has been vouched for by Honorary Food Inspector René Zakine, who handed him that prestigious award, saying “You have been faithful to this sea product” (oysters).
The oyster bar is open from Mondays to Sundays from noon to 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm to 11:30 pm.
