The Hippopotamus chain

This restaurant chain, specializing in meat, welcomes diners in any one of its numerous Parisian locations.

Hippopotamus Opéra - Intérieur 1

Hippopotamus has built its reputation on the quality of the French meat served in its restaurants. Customers come for classical fare such as steak tartare, burgers, sirloin and flank steak. For real meat lovers, some cuts of meat come in 250 gram-portions. Top-quality meats – La Salers or Aubrac – are offered in limited edition dishes. One of the bonuses of the restaurant chain: the all-you-can-eat sauces and toppings. The atmosphere is convivial and relaxed and provides the ideal setting for family lunches or dinners. While the adults linger over their meal, children can have fun in the specially-equipped children’s spaces.
