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.

One of the best restaurants we tried in Paris. The food is very traditional, ingredients are fresh, and service is very good. The setting is very nice, old French style. We would go there again.

The only good things I can say about this place is its ambience and service. The service was surprisingly good given the quality of the food. It's the historical grand type of restaurant, which you can expect as it's the oldest one in town. Anyway, we were quickly seated on the first floor after we walked in. The dining room... More

I'd had several personal recommendations for Le Procope as a place to celebrate our anniversary while in Paris. I was really looking forward to eating here as I had heard wonderful things about both the restaurant history and the food. The whole evening was a shambolic let down and we left after two courses. Our aperitifs (gin fizz) appeared to... More

Its a high class restaurant, in a traditional environment and a well organized modern cuisine, which does not necessarily guarantee fine tastes. Well recommended, more in fulfilling historical purposes.

We did not order much to eat here due to a time constraint but it was well worth the visit to be in a place that had been the dining location for the likes of Voltaire, Ben Franklin and Napoleon. Take the time to look at the paintings and framed clippings. The menu looked interesting and what we did eat... More

My husband and I dined here to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. I guess it depends what you are after - we were most certainly after this. Established in 1686, for two New Zealanders this place was nothing short of fabulous. The setting is beautiful, the staff were attentive and welcoming and the food was very traditiona, delicious French. Yes... More

This is the first bad review I have ever written on Trip Adviser - but with regret felt I needed to! I originally looked for places that we had not been to in Paris and Le Procope had mixed reviews on Trip Adviser - we are pretty open minded about these reviews and thought we would give it a try....
