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.

We had a great visit to this Iconic Paris landmark for dinner. Just sitting in a place with such rich history was enjoyable in itself but it didn't stop there. We found the service, ambiance and decor to be most enjoyable as well. Our dinner seafood combination selection was extremely fresh, bountiful and well presented. They have a nice selection... More

My husband and I both wanted to try this restaurant known for its rich history and wonderful food. Apparently Napoleon, Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin all frequented this restaurant. It is rumored that many deep debates leading to political changes occurred right there at Le Procope. Make sure you call and make reservations! We were going to head down on... More

My wife and I ate here and found the food to be excellent. Price-wise I would say it was mid range, around 65 Euros each including wine. The atmosphere was elegant, without being stuffy, the waiters were all very friendly. The food was really good, wonderfully flavoured and the waiter selected a perfectly-matched red wine to go with our main... More

A very good restaurant in Paris. Very good food and variety of choices. Too many people in the restaurant but the service was excellent. Ideal for couples and for special events with many people. It is my first time that I ate such a nice dinner in Paris. I will go again with my family!

My wife and I wouldn't have gone to Le Procope if it were not right down the street from our apartment. The food was good and the atmosphere definitely Old Paris. We ate better food and worse food in Paris, but we can say that we dined with Ben Franklin and Thomas Jefferson. The servers were quiet and attentive. Prices... More

We booked this restaurant following a recommendation from a friend who'd lived in Paris for many years and weren't disappointed. Great atmosphere, lovely restaurant and fantastic food - best Coq au Vin I've ever tasted. Would highly recommend if you want to treat yourselves.

This is not your typical quaint little French bistro for a romantic dinner! It's loud, very busy and the service is rushed. But the building interior is absolutely lovely and the food is great. The escargots were absolutely fantastic as was the specialty of the house "Revolutionaries' Beef" although the portion size is too generous for a French buttery meal!

Lovely restaurant and so charming. We had choucroute and the cod. Absolutely amazing!! The wine list was good and our choice was a happy one. All went well except for more water and took at least 30 min to get waiter to order and a long time to find someone to bring check. We are used to meals taking awhile... More
