Amazing ambiance and location, steep pricing.

I loved this place for drinks. But we found it a little steep for the food. The decor was super, good music and welcoming wait staff. Worth a go.

If the Buddha Bar wants to attract people it needs to avoid cute "mice" or "souris" or "topi" running around the feet off the customers sa of today

Went to celebrate my 60th Birthday. We had a little trouble finding the Buddha-Bar Restaurant. The Buddha-Bar was surprising - The Music was Fabulous (of course); The Food & Cocktails/Wine better than expected. BUT the SERVICE was lacking ....... we arrived 15mins early &, to our surprise, no-one would seat us (Excuse - Table wasn't Ready ... we later worked... More

We have been fans of the eclectic Buddha Bar soundtracks, and decided to visit as it had a place in our lives. The restaurant is certainly beautiful, and it has a presence you won't forget, especially after descending down the spiral staircase into the main dining room. Though it was empty and early, we were seated on the far outskirts... More

I've been to the Buddha bar in Paris twice now, not disappointed by the drinks- great variety and the bar staff are more than happy to go off menu if requested. Drinks aren't cheap at c€20 each. It's quite dark and intimate - a lovely experience which I would recommend for at least 1 drink in Paris

It is more than expected!! First of all the location, the most beautiful area in Paris, so close to Place de la concorde. Once you are inside, that is a Life experience: everything is perfect!! Lights, chairs, sofà, smell, the very big Buddha at the centre of the room downstairs, and.... The fantastic music as soundtrack for a special dinner...... More

Soo bad there is a mouse in the dining walking between the tables and no one did anything. And they did not care about it. Am sure that the kitchen is horrible more. It is very disgusting

Me and my boyfriend went to the Buddha Bar for Easter weekend and were expecting it to be amazing after being to the one in London, and many other similar restaurants like Hakkasan etc. We were extremely disappointed. We got seated on a table in the middle of the room, felt like we had been crammed in. Pitch black lighting... More
