There is nothing quite like this place anywhere else in the world. Started in the early 2000s, this restaurateur had the enticing inspiration to not just provide dinner-theatre to his guests, but to provide live opera with their meal. What makes the whole singing-with-your-meal work is that these performers are top-notch, highly-trained opera singers who, when not performing here, are on stage, featured on Radio France performances and/or recording their own CDs. The performing team features 100 singers and 20 piano players in total. And, this being France, the meal served is no after thought. A newly refreshed menu by Executive Chef Eric Léautey has your fish, chicken and steak cooked to perfection and served with light and flavorful accompanying sauces. The wine list, too, is well thought out and offers selections from Burgundy, the Loire, Côte-du-Rhône and Bordeaux.

All performers are professionally trained opera singers and when not serving you the delicious steak and seafood dinners prepared by the excellent kitchens here, they are delivering stage-worthy performances."
