“My Quest for Authentic French Pastries Fulfilled!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2013

Paris was on my bucket list. Authentic French pastry naturally had to be included during my visit. When we discovered this boutique near our hotel, I knew it was fate. We made a point to stop by and pick up a few confections while taking a break in the middle of a day of sightseeing. The selection of artistic edible treasures is nearly overwhelming. I simple pressed ahead and quickly chose 5 assorted pastries, all unique and splendid. It's hard to describe them all. They even had names, like "Chloe." One was a perfect cocoa dusted dome of chocolate mousse. One resembled a berry crumble. Another was a glistening slice of cheesecake with multiple layers and complex flavors. We took our selections back to our hotel in a box, then served them up on nice plates provided by our hotel staff. The two of us evenly divided all 5 pastries, then slowly gobbled them up, laughing and commenting. What more delightful way to enjoy another taste of France? We really enjoyed Paris. This was one of the more memorable highlights.

“Incredible, especially the mint ganache!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

When we walked into Arnaud Larher, we immediately noticed the gorgeous pastries. It was too hot to take any of the pastries back to our hotel room, but they looked delicious in the display case. We ended up purchasing a small bag of chocolates and another of macaroons. The macaroons were very good, but what we really loved were the chocolates. The mint ganache tasted like a mint leaf had been stuck into a piece of delicious chocolate, and didn't have the artificial toothpaste-like taste that some mint-flavored foods have. The raspberry-filled chocolate was also very good, as was the salted caramel. Everything we tried was fantastic and I would definitely recommend stopping at Arnaud Larher while in Paris!

“Amazing!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013 via mobile

The macaroons were amazing especially the coca-cola one!! They are a little expensive but they are worth it and the staff were extremely helpful. We also tried the eclair and the peach tarte tatin which were incredible. This is definatley worth a visit.

We have been trying macaroons all over Paris and Arnaud Larher are definitely the best, well worth making a detour to visit if you are in the area.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Perhaps some of the most beautiful pastries I have seen in Paris. Everything is top notch in this small cozy boutique. Service was very helpful. Things even taste better than they look!
