Perhaps one of the most famous and opulent opera houses in the world, Palais Garnier - Opera National de Paris was the setting for the 1910 novel "The Phantom of the Opera,” by Gaston Leroux. When you approach the façade, look up and you'll see the 7.5-m (25-ft) Beaux Arts statue known as L’Harmonie. Today, the opera house primarily produces ballet productions, which you can attend with advance tickets. Admission to an on-site museum, the Bibliothèque-Musée de l'Opéra de Paris (Paris Opera Library-Museum), is included in unaccompanied tours of the opera house building. Be sure to admire the enormous bronze and crystal chandelier in the auditorium. You can dine in the L'Opéra Restaurant.

  • I get the place, I had an idea of what it could be like inside but when I walk in I get imresioanda the place is very big, it has several rooms and the theater inspires you to stay good weather watching, I highly recommend that you give yourself the time to get the Opera

  • COCO is independent at the Palais Garnier. It's a very nice place, but it's not transcendent either. It is the same group as the Giraffe, Monsieur Bleu, Loulou (at the Louvre). The welcome is warm and without too much fuss, which is appreciable. In these restaurants of the same group, it is the unusual places that take precedence. As for the map, it holds the road without more. We're not paying attention to it, actually. This same restaurant on any avenue in Paris would be mundane. It is the magic of the Opera Garnier that gives added value to this restaurant. The singing tour during dinner is perfect, we are neither bothered by the volume that is subtle, nor by the artists who know how to be discreet. We're not in a Chinese restaurant karaoke in Belleville, everything is finely orchestrated at COCO...
