Going to this store is like the storey about the emperor and his new clothes. I think everyone expects it to be beautiful and so that is all they see. But I am sure the owners are laughing at all the foolish people who are herded into their store and have to put up with terrible cafes, facilities and dreadful... More

We entered one that was everything Japanese.We searched, no good directions or maps.We asked staff , repeatedly sent us to tiny Japanese "Grand Epicerie" instead of the large one we wanted.Rode the elevator up and down.Must have asked staff for help 6 times before someone finally...

Le Bon Marche in Paris is a food lovers delight. Their downstairs Cafe serves the very best quality FRUIT SALAD, straight from their own superbly displayed provendore department. Our bowls were laden with freshest melon, kiwi fruit & seasonal berries, all drowning in freshly squeezed orange marinade. So refreshing. My barista made double espresso was from high quality coffee beans.... More

If you like to explore department stores, Le Bon Marche is well worth a visit. Even if you don't make any purchases it is very interesting to browse especially in La Grande Epicerie. When I visited in July it was sale time and I was lucky enough to find some bargains.

We stopped here by mistake. We were looking for the Bon March Le Grande Epicerie next door at 38 rue de Sevres and came in here. The store is by far among the best Department stores in the world that we've been to visit and that includes most New York and Boston stores, Harrod's in London, and KaDeWe in Berlin.... More

My wife is the shopper. For certain their food floor is fantastic with so many choices of quality fresh food.The store itself is well laid out and you can find seats while your wife shops. ;-)

My favourite place in Paris with La Grande Epicerie also from Le Bon Marche. Here you'll find anything you need from clothes to housing furnitures. Been goin there for years. Two nice restaurants in the shop.

Exceptional selection of designer fashions, home goods and kids items. Brands such as Chanel, LV, Prada, Hermes, etc. Best shoe selection I have seen in a long time. Kids toys are extensive but fashion somewhat limited. Also take note to keep your receipts and file for your tax refund right there in the store, makes it much easier!!

If you love department stores and gourmet foods, then this is the place for you. It is full of high end stores and they even have a large room devoted to pens - glass cases full of them! The food emporium is a lot of fun, too. It is a great place to pick up the fixings for a nice... More
