I've been coming here for many years every time I am in Paris. After giving our order by the time I came back from he washroom the appy we ordered was already served! Wow! That was quick. It was calamari and frogs legs. Unfortunately it was so tasteless, chewy and most certainly not fresh. It was also served oily. We... More

This restaurant is just grand in every way. When you enter you're taken into an almost fantasy like experience. The exterior is unassuming, but the interior is opulent - very Paris like. It isn't about the food as much as the experience and the place itself. So, don't go there expecting to be blown away by the food.

Fantastic atmosphere and decor. Food was very enjoyable and drinks afterwards upstairs. Dress appropriately as the door staff are rightly picky. Hugely recommended.

We came here on a Saturday night for drinks, it was my first time here and the decor & atmosphere is very nice, definitely worth seeing once ! We got there early around 21:00, and we were able to find a table easily, if you come an hour later, it would be more difficult to find a table. I had... More

With all the amazing restaurants available in Paris, I wouldn't necessarily recommend this to others. We were seated and waited twenty minutes before being approached by our waiter. We had made reservations for 10:30 and if it were not so late I believe we may have just walked out. The restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel. The atmosphere... More

First, we got stopped in the entrance because my boyfriend had shorts on. It was like 25 celsius outside and too hot to wear jeans (and he had a nice shirt on and was better dressed than other that was wearing flip-flops!). Well, he would let us in only to book a table the day after. The lady in the... More

Buddha Bar . The name speaks for it self. Nice music, nice ambiance, nice food, nice crowd , great location, nice interior design. What else do you need ? One of my favourite Restaurant and Lounge in Paris . Always went there anytime I was in Paris .

I had been to the Buddha Bar many years ago when living in Paris and the atmosphere is just as amazing as it was then. This visit, however, was very much unlike my experience before - and unlike any French restaurant I have patronized! The service was TERRIBLE. My husband and I were seated very quickly, but after waiting 20... More

My wife had visited here 10 years before, she highly recommended it. The atmosphere is lovely, typical paris table setup close and little privacy but "when in Paris" Food gives you good options and sharing selections is something we enjoyed.
