Brasserie du Casino

Brasserie in Vichy

All shiny brass, squeaky leather and art-deco glamour, this timeless haunt has a wall of photos featuring the actors and chanteurs who've stopped by from the opera house since 1901. The food is substantial (Charolais beef, sole meunière, scallop risotto in lobster sauce) and the feel unmistakably French.

The Brasserie du Casino remains a popular dinner spot before and after performances at the Opéra de Vichy but you'll need to reserve ahead.
