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

My friends and I decided to end their visit in Paris at Buddha Bar.

From there on the service, atmosphere and food were very satisfying and we left with happy stomachs and happy hearts. All of us living... More

Arriving on a Saturday night with no reservation, the staff were quick to accomodate the three of us as we sipped our first rouond of cocktails in a quiet corner. We were informed that once a party sitting in an area overlooking the entire venue were to leave, they would sit us there. This occured 15 minutes later. I'm not... More

I just got out of there,we were 8 friends to eat there. We paid around 500 Euros. It s not that much for 8 people. The thing is that they have a good scam in place. If 2 people will order the same plate, they will provide a plate that should be shared by the 2 persons who ordered the... More

To say goodbye to a dear friend we (a group of 12) booked a table here last week. We were not given one table but two smaller ones (which is not nice). We received hardly any service: the waiter finally took the order of two people at our table and then walked away again without taking the orders of the... More

We visited Buddha Bar after it was recommended as somewhere a bit different to experience. We went for drinks only, as we already had dinner reservations elsewhere. This was a very cool place which had a funky vibe to it. I'm glad we didn't stay for dinner though - the place was very dark and I wouldn't have been able... More

Staying in Champs-Elysees

Neighborhood Profile
Champs-Elysees
This area is characterized by its namesake avenue which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive offices and presidential palaces; architecture from 19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art galleries, and 19th century streets designed by Baron Haussmann flank haute-couture boutiques. This neighborhood never rests, buzzing with visitors from around the world at all times of day and night, all within a stone's throw of the Seine.
