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,...

Not to be confused with American macaroons, these are amazing little "cookie sandwiches" in beautiful pastel colors and assorted flavors. You'll see them all over Paris, but Laduree is the best. They even have a little kiosk near he Louvre in the carousel food court downstairs. They are incredible and just melt in your mouth. Unfortunately they are also very... More

A Parisian tradition, the room is beautiful, the macaroons exquisite, and the rest of the food ridiculously overpriced, but who cares, you're in Paris. Very tight eating room downstairs is perfect for people watching. The food is good, and of course you could get an equally if not better meal a few blocks away, but why would you? Perfect for...

The review is for the macaroons only. Only waited in line for 5 mins. They are very organized and helpful. Great customer service. As for the macaroons, perfection! In my opinion, the filling wasn't too dense nor too sweet, making it a great snack as you walk through Paris.

The Laduree on the Champs Elysees is extremely busy all the time and quite a stressful experience. This Laduree however is completely different. It wasn't quite as busy, there was more of a system of ordering and the staff were actually friendly and smiling which they rarely do in the other store. If only wanting to visit one Laduree in...

I have tried macarons from at least 15 other places, and very few come close. The restaurant is always crowded (cramped and service suffers) and we do NOT think it is the best way to savor these delicate creations. Buy the macarons and take them home or back to your hotel, make your favorite tea or coffee or infusion, and... More

The service was super slow, the food was not good, not special at all and the price was above average. I ordered the plad du jour. The waiter did not know the children's menu included 4 macarons and not 2! The decor is beatiful, but my birthday lunch was far from memorable...waste of money.

Only went there for the experience actually but the macaroons where out of this earth like really delicious! I tried others and could tell that these have something different that makes them unique. They're kind of expensive so maybe only try 2 or 3..my favorites where vanilla, chocolate and pistachio. It's totally worth it but if you're on a budget... More

Yes, you will have to wait. But it will be worth it! inside is gorgeous.. I would love to come back for lunch but we only had time to grab some macarons and go. The cookies came in an adorable keepsake box. It is a must see and conveniently on the Champs de Elysees (Sp?).
