Disappointed

I was so excited to get back to Paris after a few years and definitely wanted to go to the Buddha bar. Although the service was friendly they made a couple of mistakes. First we were not offered any water or drinks and had to wait, then we got the starters and main courses at the same time and... read more

An amazing place in the center of Paris to enjoy really wonderful Asian food. Delicious varieties of sushi and tasteful cocktails, all combined with first class service. Everything you order I am sure it will be excellent. This Asian restaurant is a must every time someone visits Paris!

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.

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.
