I had been here before during its shinny days and was insisted to go again. What a disappointment. Not only was the food under any averaged standard but the place was almost empty and still the service was terrible. Too bad my last memories of this place have now been overrun by desillution.

Called in for a gin & tonic ... stayed for 2. The decor and ambience are second to none, very beautifully executed. Very moody and a great atmosphere for a bar. We didn't dine at the restaurant but will do so on our next visit to Paris in October. The staff could be a little more attentive, however, we weren't... More

I went to the Buddha Bar last weekend for a birthday. Although we were more than 10 people, the service still remained very good. The food and the music were very nice. We decided to order many starters, which I think was a good idea ! This restaurant is a perfect place to celebrate a birthday due to its atmosphere... More

Really enjoyed ourselves at this place. We had been recommended to come here while we were in Paris and it did not disappoint.

Incredibly nice place, great music. Very expensive but.. for one night you can afford it (60 euros to eat + 20 for a very good cocktail at the bar)

We have had an extraordinary trip and held quite high expectations for Buddah Bar Paris after eating at the Monaco Buddah Bar twice and loving it so much. Whilst the atmosphere here is quite good, they have not quite mastered it like Monaco, perhaps it was the music level or distance between customers.. Something is amiss. The service is really...

Maybe I expected a bit too much since I heard about this bar. We came to this restaurant for my birthday dinner, and my boyfriend paid 150euros for it.
