Rue Royale is exquisite

I booked the Rue Royale location because the location on the Champs Elysees was crowded, crowded, crowded. My husband and I had the most wonderful lunch -- the best meal we had in Paris in terms of food, atmosphere, and service.

Ladurée sells by far the most expensive patisserie I've ever had. However, I knew we had to try this when visiting Paris, for their excellent macarons! We had 4 small macarons for 10 euros and 1 small chocolate pastry for 10 euro and didn't order any drinks (a coca cola for around 9 euro haha) BUT: it was the best... More

This was our 2nd visit here and we decided to try something savoury. We were greeted by a pleasant lady and seated easily although brunch time and it was quite busy. This is the original Laduree, where Marie Antoinette and her ladies in waiting may have nibbled macarons after a heavy day...eating macarons and catching up on gossip. There is... More

We had a seat out by the window facing the street. The position was great but the flooring uneven and a little cold. Our table a little to big for the three of us but I guess they thought the position would make up for it which it kind of did. The prices where very expensive but really its Laduree... More

The Laduree restaurants, there are six of them in Paris, are well known as top tier cafes. We only tried this one and found it nice, but not quite elegant. There are nice furnishings, however, they fall far short of luxurious. But that is no matter, we came for the food and not the decor. I know that macaroons are... More

You feel special when you are over looked for someone else in the queue who wants to buy lunch rather than just coffee - this restaurant values your spend rather than your custom. Over-priced pastries - macaroons were good, but coffee nothing special. Go here for the experience if you must - but don't expect value or particularly good service.

This place and what this place offers us didn't fail to amaze me! Excellent customer service was the thing I appreciate so much. We reserved a place at 8 am but due to the delay of the subway we didn't manage to come on time. However, we called them that we are going to be late and they still welcomed... More

When a mouse scurries through the dining room and under a table, regardless of the atmosphere or food, the experience is ruined. To make it worse, the busboy said it was normal, the hostess agreed with him and was indifferent, and the waitress was mildly surprised because "they exterminate daily." No accommodation was offered, but even if they had given... More

i wanted to try the famous macaroons ! But got disappointed - it was nearly frozen and quite frankly, despite the courteousness of the attendant, the beauty of the place, it tasted the same as a macaroon I tried at Mc Donald's cafe in Madrid, which also cost less than half the price (and My grandfather was a great patissier,...
