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.

Good for business diners

I booked a room to gather my European Team after a 3 days seminar. We were under the roof in a charming salon. We all had coq au vin, the best I ever ate. Service was great, price wasn't cheap but value was good. Wine too. I do recommend it for business diner.

This was the second restaurant in our French Culinary Tour. The ambiance of this restaurant is beautiful. The food was delicious. Customer service was professional and friendly. We were given a post card, great addition for our Paris Scrapbook.

Many very impressive patrons including Franklin, Ben that is and Thomas Jefferson as well as the Moose. Food is great and history is amazing I have been there every visit into... More

This restaurant relies on it's history. Unfortunately, when we visit a restaurant, it is an experience where food and good service counts. We experienced neither of the two at La Procope.

Great anniversary dinner in a very historic location. We had the summer special oysters followed by the griddled duck and braised beef check with a nice bottle of Tourraine Sauvignon approx. €5. All excellent. Will be back.

this review is based on the fact that we waited for 50 mins and the waiter didnt care to collect the plates left by the previous company on the table, even though we asked for it 3 or more times.

Crowded restaurant for dinner. You get seated very close to strangers on small tables. The food is good, not so the prices. The service is ok. When in august 2015 and the restaurant was abnormally hotter than the temperature on the street.

It's true that our restaurant is crowded, especially during summer, and does not have air conditioning, which can make it quite hot.
