Description: Le Procope founded in 1686 by the Sicilian Francesco Procopio Dei Coltelli, is considered to be one of the oldest cafes in Paris, as well as a legendary meeting place for artists and intellectuals. You'll be surprised as much by the decor of the three-hundred-year-old restaurant, marked by the historical events it has witnessed over the years, as by its culinary classics, such as the coq au vin or whiting and its creams and sorbets made by the House. A historic cafe to try for a full meal or even a cup of tea and a sweet pastry.

Le Procope was recommended to us by our tour guide who took us to Versailles and Giverny and pointed it out when she was taking us back to our hotel. LeProcope is the oldest restaurant in continuous operation in Paris (founded in 1686). We did not have a reservation and were a little intimidated by the prices, but who knows... More

I'm a critical foodie and I will say this was an exquisite evening. Yes, we had to wait a half an hour to get a table, but I've done that at Applebee's. So you stroll the streets of Paris for a bit, not a bad wait. Saw the gracious actor Michael Nouri (Damages) there as well. Best lamb I've ever... More

Perhaps we shouldn't have gone for the cheaper set menu but my partner had the worst cut of beef. Maybe it's better to pay full price but we were very disappointed. The staff were friendly.

We stopped here on advice from Boris, our Paris guide from Paris in Person walking tours and we were not disappointed. My husband and I chose the entre + dessert for 21 euros each. I had the duck and my husband the braised beef. My 4 year old also had the French onion soup and it was very good. The... More

‘Le Procope’. I have been a frequent visitor to Paris for the past fifty years and have always made a point of stepping into history and eating here. I took some friends so that they could experience sitting and eating in a place where their favourite authors once sat. The food was up to the usual standard. But, the man... More

For my birthday on 31st August, my wife and a couple of friends from Texas went there for diner. I am no going to describe the place, you can take a gesture of it on the website, let's just say that it looks like the Inside of a 18th Century noble house (pretty, charming and cosy). From Starters (snails or... More

I can't say enough great things about our experience at Le Procope, with the charming, historic atmosphere, professional and friendly service, and great food. We had the lunch menu du jour of steak, fish, and a dessert of creme brulee that were perfectly delicious. The steak was one of two of the all-time best I've ever had. Sure, we were... More
