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.

February 1986 Le Procope 13, rue de l’Ancienne-Comédie, Paris VI In 1686, a Sicilian, whose name was eventually reduced to Procope, found himself in the Latin Quarter and owner of a small restaurant. Three hundred twenty-eight years later, the place is still going strong. It is hard now to pinpoint precisely why or how his enterprise prospered and perdured. Could... More

Le Procope was once an important bastion of intellectuals and political heavy-weight of Europe, now it is frequented by tourists from all over the globe.

Most of them speak English and English menu... More

Stepping into Le Procope is like going back in time. The interior is neatly restored providing a cosy yet classy atmosphere that is underlined by the very prompt service. On the menu are classical french dishes. I went there for dinner with a couple of colleauges, and had a stew, that turned out to be everything it promised. Would certainly... More

This is traditional classic old French restaurant advertising itself as having been around since 1686...or maybe that was just the building. Décor and surroundings are in the classic old style. Service was excellent. The escargots were excellent as was the Grand Manier crepes that we had for dessert. However the coq au vin that we all had was really rather... More

Three of us came here for lunch and were disappointed, previous meals had been excellent. My main course was served in a cold plate. Our daughter ordered Confit de Canard but it was replaced by beef.

Procope is an established historical eatery. With Napolean's hat gracing the entranceway, this place has has old written all over it, but a good old. True, it has been there for a very long time, and perhaps even more true the food tended to be a bit contrived, but when you get to the point that you think that this... More

This is no ordinary cafe, it's a dining delight. Not only is the food extraordinary, but the people are friendly, engaging and helpful. As non-French speaking US tourists, we experienced nothing but a helpful attitude and a willingness to do what they could to make sure we had a great meal. It's more expensive than most cafes we visited, and... More

The oldest restaurant in Paris. From food we didn't expect anything, but ate very well. Were in the afternoon, took the menu. Oysters, onion soup, duck, meat - everything was good quality. The restaurant with the sense of history, cosy, with fotos of famous people on the wall. Tourists at least once should be here.

Definitely it had seen better days. We went with a group of friends, I asked for le coq au vin, one of the house especialities. The taste of the sauce was just ok, but it came only bones and skins. Only one or two small pieces of chicken. Amazing! The dessert, a piece of pie that needed an axe to... More
