Time Out says
A gracious gem dating back to 1873, the Galerie Vivienne is in perfect condition, all polished wood, glass and wrought iron, its mosaic-inlaid corridors lined with plants. Even during busy times it has an air of quiet elegance, making it a pure pleasure to browse the chic boutiques – look out for Jean-Paul Gaulthier, Nathalie Garçon, bijou toystore Si Tu Veux and venerable wine cellar and deli Legrand Filles et Fils. At the entrance on the Rue des Petits Champs, Bistrot Vivienne is a charming and reliable pit-stop, with a romantic private upstairs dining room.
