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.

Huge portions, if you're cheeky enough, get one main course plus maybe a salad to share, and 2 starters! We had the lamb navarin and coq au vin, to be honest too much meat on a plate! The cooking's ok, competent, certainly not chefy, no scatter of petals, no sous vide, basic French cooking, Delia circa 1980. You could do... More

I really enjoyed my meal here - I went with a large group from work and maybe because it was all expensed I didn't appreciate how extortionate the prices were. Thus I can't comment on 'value for money' (doubt I'd go here if I had to pay), but the food was nice (I had salmon with potatoes) and the service... More

We went to this restaurant at the recommendation of our daughter's suggestion. We were seated by ourselves in a small private room. It was the perfect setting for a nice enjoyable, quiet dinner. The waiter was very attentive and helpful when it came to choosing a wine from their wide selection as well as recommendations for dinner selections. It seemed... More

We enjoyed two dinners here last month, and generally enjoyed ourselves (I guess we did since we returned). The atmosphere is classic old French, which is great. The food isn't innovative or unique, and seems a bit overpriced. I had the sole and it was nearly $60, which was a huge disappointment. The fish was good, but not $60 good.... More

We went to this restaurant upon my girlfriend's family's suggestion. The atmosphere is amazing and a good gist of what the service level is may be got already when entering the restaurant: you are welcomed by friendly and perfectly English-speaking personnel that takes care of your coats. You're then guided to your table in the historical, elegant and cosy dining... More

We went here for the missis's birthday and really enjoyed it. The place is a series of interconnected rooms and by far the best and cosiest was the one we were in (to the right if you come in from the street side or straight through and to the left if you come in from the covered alley). The missis... More

Very atmospheric. The food though very mediocre. Overrated, Nothing special. The heat, due to the heating system is unbearable. My phone measured 27 degrees of Celsius. Needs serious and expensive renovation. The service is OK. Nice people with a smile. Expensive. Large gap of price vs quality.

We took advantage our first night of the Prixe Fixe menu they offered if you were seated by 7pm. All of the selections were great and it was so reasonable and came with dessert as well. We loved the place and the food so much that we went back on our last night and had their all night prixe fixe... More

Fun to wander through all the rooms-- incredible atmosphere. Perfectly paced service. But go for the Tiramisu!
