Great food, staff not so friendly

I went to this place twice and the first time I had a reservation that my hotel made for me, I was visiting Paris with my mother. The staff were OK with us but not very friendly they seemed to have attitude, it was raining on that day so we were seated inside and I requested to be by the... read more

Amazing Costes outpost. Get a table outside! Order the salad and some frites and a bottle of rose and just people watch. All the food we had was great, but you're not really going for the food. Great neighborhood for walking around/shopping afterwards. Service was great. But if you're not sitting outside, I'm not sure of the point.

My husband and i were seated outside on the terrace on a beautiful afternoon. The vibe is very "Beverly hills" meaning lots of birkins, fake breasts and collagen inflated lips. The perfect place to people watch because let's face your neighborhood cafe doesn't have half of this much entertainment. That being said, the food was mediocre. Not terrible but nothing... More

Outwardly seemed a lovely place to visit! The chefs do a wonderful job but front of house staff let down what is a restaurant opposite DIOR boutique..... Our waitress spoke at length and I mean at length with the table opposite us whilst serving us...... totally rude and unforgivable front of house attitude...... what a pity! Bravo les chefs!

I had heard so much about this place. So I was keen to check it out on my recent trip to Paris. We arrived for breakfast and was met by very well dressed and well groomed waiters who promptly seated us for breakfast. My mum and I felt like pancakes and a cappuccino. Unfortunately this was where the chicness stopped.... More

After a last minute change for where we wanted to have dinner..We wanted something within walking distance to our hotel. Our conceirge arranged reservations for us at L'Avenue. We had to wait a bit so we sat upstairs at the bar to have a cocktail. It is a very small bar but I think it is primarily there for patrons... More

I just wanted to say that L'Avenue is a very chique restaurant and the food is delicious. I saw that many people had problems getting in because of their clothes. You do not go to a chique restaurant in jeans and a plain shirt, you need to dress up. They are completely right to not let you in because it... More
