“You May Be Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

I love Paris, and all its parcs, jardins and squares. Nonetheless, Place Dauphine is a disappointment--because it is totally over-rated in travel guides. Perhaps it was something more in the past, but now it is quite plain, it is little but a resting spot. There is no greenery or charm of any kind. If you seek a parc/jardin on the Isles, better to go to the beautiful Square du Vert Galant or the Square Barye.

“Gorgeous, atmospheric square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

You approach the square walking along a narrow lane in the heart of Ile de la Cite. When you emerge into the square, it is like entering a calm oasis. The square is triangular and evenly planted with small, neat trees. Kids play amongst them. There are seats to rest on. The square is surrounded by Baron Haussmann buildings and has a timeless quality. There are some restaurants opening to the square and they look nice - we had dinner in one of them. This is a very beautiful and atmospheric place - very Paris.

“Quiet place in very centre of Paris”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

Pretty nice square located in the Ile de la Cité just behind the Palais de Justice and La Concergierie.- It's worth to take a moment of rest in it.- At spring it is nice to see a lot of birds in its trees.-

“Thank you Tripadviser!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

What an absolutely lovely quiet part of Paris, with fantastic walks along the banks of the river Seine. Clearly Parisians were enjoying romantic picnics alongside the river. Amazingly most of the tourists were speeding by on their way to the Notre Dame

“Nice place to relax by the Seine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

Quiet, peaceful little park right on the Seine. We saw a couple get engaged. Mostly just couples relaxing and enjoying the view. It's a good break from the hustle and bustle of downtown Paris.
