Restaurant in Paris, Opéra Garnier



A legendary address in the Grands Boulevards, the Café de la Paix has been fully renovated, flourishing once again its famous Napoléon III décor. Inaugurated in 1862, at the same time as the Grand Hôtel which shares its premises, this institution has always been at the heart of Parisian art and art de vivre.


An iconic restaurant

Located on the Place de l’Opéra, the Café de la Paix has embodied Parisian life since it first opened in 1862. It has borne witness to landmark moments in the capital’s History.

It has watched generations of Parisians meet, find love, and share moments together, over coffee, over a lifetime.
