Buddha Bar in Paris is the best Buddha bar among others in the world. Amazing atmosphere, amazing service, parisian style and charm. Food is delicious, cocktails are very tasty and good looking. If you want to see Parisian nightlife, this is the place you have to go. Definitely if I will be in Paris again, that will be the new... More

This restaurant/bar is so exciting, that I am jealous of everybody living in Paris, having the possibility to go there often. Very nice food and friendly service – but the atmosphere and ambiance is unique and completely over the top in this legendary huge and underground location. If we would not have had an appointment later on somebody would have... More

We were 18 friends, all foreigners but Paris' residents treating ourselves to a trendy dinner. Although the food was good, the service left much to be desired. After initial cocktails upstairs, we were seated around 2 tables with one waiter who was clearly in over his head with a group this size. We asked for a second waiter given that... More

Buddha Bar is still going strong. Located in the 8th arrondissement on Rue de Boissy d'Anglais, it has maintained it's place as one of the premier night time destinations in Paris. Expensive, busy, full of fashionistas & beautiful people and with superstar DJs holding sets regularly, it is a must visit place for dinner/ entertainment in Paris.

Great place and unimaginably huge! It is a dark and mysterious space, you feel you have been transported to another place. Food, drinks and service was very good, pricey but worth it as it is a great relaxed restaurant where we not rushed but enjoyed the music and ambience. A place to go especially if you are into their music.

We had dinner at buddha bar one evening since we had heard a lot about it. I agree the ambience was awesome and the food was good but it was quite over-priced. They charged us so highly even for a bottle of still water. The staff was ok, but hardly knew english to communicate with is. I was quite disappointed.

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.
