    Great Experience for our family!
    We took part in this class during a short stay in Paris and really loved it! Our children (15,14, and 11 yrs old) counted this experience as one of the top 3 in a 2 week vacation that took us to Paris, Rome, Venice and southern Italy. Our 'teacher' was lovely and easy to work with, she did a great job to explain the recipe and instructions to a wide range of people in the group (our class was made up of young children, teens and adults, and she managed it with ease). And, the final word is that the outcome (the Macaron's we got to take away from the class) didn't make it out of the store before they were gone if that tells you anything!

    From America to Paris
    It was nice to attend a fashion show in Paris. We did not receive our bottled water but we were fine. Lol It was a enjoyable experience. My lady’s comment was that the garments we’re targeting a young audience and as a 50 year old woman, she was inspired to buy the garments. The majority of the attendees were her age and older, but overall, she liked it. The models did great and our seating was the best, right in the middle. I rank it a 4 out of 5. I can’t give a 5 because if you promise bottled water or anything and don’t deliver then a point or two is automatically deducted. It’s what it is.

    General plus Fashion Show and Macaron Class
    We had a wonderful time shopping at the store! The staff was informed friendly and helpful. The store itself is entertainment experience as one travels from building to building and floor to floorThe Fashion Show was absolutely fabulous. Our macaron cooking teacher Marie was the best. I can't say enough of good things about her!! Our only disappointment was not being able to have a drink or something to eat on the roof! We didn't know you had to make arrangements ahead of time! Suggestion that you allow patrons to reserve a glass of champaign/ coffee and macaron / Croissant ahead of time and pick it up from a small stand on the roof! The view from the roof was delightful and a great deal of fun!!

    Perfect Activity!
    My wife and I were visiting Paris for a long weekend and loved this macaron making class. It was a lovely alternative to the other more traditional tourist activities (and gave us an excuse to sample the delicious output of our class). The pastry chef was so helpful and patient and ensured we couldn’t mess it up!

    Dayuuuuuum!!
    I thought the Dubai Mall is the pinnacle of a shopping complex, but I was totally wrong. The blend of the modern and the parisien architecture is mind blowing. Every possible luxury brand has multiple outlets. Best part is you can shop all you want and instantly get a tax refund in cash or credit card.

    Macaron-making class
    We signed up for a macaron-making class (in English) as a family, and it was really fun and tasty! The instructor showed us how to make the batter and gave great tips for how to be successful with the recipe if we tried it again at home. Because the cookies need time to set and bake, the instructor pre-made enough for us, and we got to fill them and take them home. I would recommend the class! However, the location of the class within the Galeries Lafayette was hard to find - surprisingly, three of the four concierges (customer service help desks) we asked could not tell us where to go, so we were almost late.

    Macaron baking class at Galeries Lafayette
    This class might be good for people with absolutely no baking experience. It was mostly instructional and we watched someone do the work as opposed to getting hands-on. We did get to pipe some shells and fill some pre-made shells. But if you’re looking for something more hands-on, this isn’t the class for you. I suppose this is reflected in the price and length of time of the class. All that said, the woman running the class was lovely and did her best to teach us the macaron baking process.

    A great intro class
    My daughter and I had a good time in the Macaron class. The instructor was excellent and very friendly and helpful. I do wish I had known it was for real beginners (instructions on how to "fold" the batter) as we might have tried a different level. But it was a good experience overall. I would ask to cut down on the amount of standing -- since this class was full of tourists, we had all been walking all day long and then to stand for another hour watching the demonstration was a lot.

    Look up!
    We had lunch in the cafeteria style restaurant because the sky was spitting rain so we gave the weather some time to clear before heading out of this lovely department store. When we were here in 2014 with our granddaughter, we bought lunch and went to the roof to eat. That wasn’t an option this time because they have developed the roof top into a fancy observation area. The food was pretty good. It’s organized by stations so we could clearly see what we were buying. The salad bar had plenty of choices which we appreciated. It was a good choice, especially because of the challenging weather. This is a beautiful department store, certainly worth a visit, especially for the views from the roof top. We could see so much of beautiful Paris. The opera house is right next door, but we could pick out other iconic Parisian landmarks as well. The shopping experience was fine - pretty much anything we could want could be purchased there. But the highlight is the glass ceiling. Go inside to the mezzanine and look up - just fabulous!

    A store for all tastes and pockets
    Galeries Lafayette are an objective to visit as many times I arrived in Paris. It's a wonderful huge store, where you find everything you want, at a convenient prices. It is interesting that this store is decorating according to the season, or important events. its architecture is impressive, with the balconies of the different floors and its magnificent dome. I thing that this store is a "MUST" for every tourist who wants to go shopping.

Crowded, very crowded many tourist (mostly Asian) purchasing luxury items. Most of the brands carried in the store are high end luxury brands with high prices. BEWARE of fake sales and %discounts. I was shocked to find that the sale prices 20%-60% off sale items did not apply to non EU tourists. Sadly we had shopped and purchased some items before we became aware of this rip off of non eu tourists, once we found out we left the store. SO if you are from any country outside the European Union you cannot get the posted sale price, you would pay full price even if it was marked as a % off. The clerk said this would end after the holiday season (when all the tourist go home). Also, keep in mind the "tax refund" is not the full amount that you pay in tax. The vat tax is about 20% and you get about 12% back. You must jump though many hoops to get it back. First, you need to "claim" the tax refund and get the form from the store. Second, you must take the items you purchased and the form to the customs officer in the airport to get validated (remember you must have the items with tags out at the airport), and show the form, AND the items with the sales tags attached (if you packed the items in the luggage you do not get the form validated) and after all this, Third, you must mail the form back to the store, if the store does not receive it NO REFUND. By the way many items do not qualify for the tax refund, brands such as Rolex and LV and others.

I visited this store which I think is their largest location. There was a lot of sale on in all departments, this happens in Paris only twice a year. The discounts were great, but I did not buy anything much to my surprise, I was keeping my money for future purchases. However, the dome made of stain glass was absolutely beautiful and there was a little walkout structire, where you are able to take great photos. Many more shops and restaurants in the busy area, you can easily spend half day or more having a good time exploring.

It is always worth a visit to Galleries Lafayette as it the interior is really beautiful. There is now a glass walkway to afford a better view of the lovely stained glass dome. There is an outside view over the Palais Garnier and Paris. I prefer the view from Printemps and went when it was free but this has now been taken over by a expensive bar and restaurant and it looks as if the rooftop of Galleries Lafayette will be going the same way.

Took a visit with my mum whilst husband slept. Much more pleasant than Printemps. Ceiling unbelievable - worth a visit just for that! Managed some good deals on baby clothes, gifts on top floor were great, good selection and reasonably priced without the fight of the stores in other locations.

I shopped 5 Mauviel pans online and some lids online. When i received them it was not a 20 cm SAUTE pan like showed on the product picture, but a normal pan.
Took them ages to reply and tell me to send evidence the product was wrong.

I send a bunch of pictures of the damn pan and they get back with the reply several weeks later saying basically that I lie and that it is a picture of another product i ordered (a 26 cm pan).
But to top off the most absurd behavior I have ever received shopping online they would not let me return it since they had dragged the correspondence out past the return period!

Absolutely absurd. I would never shop with them in any way. And I will honestly look into legal options since i don’t appreciate being called a liar when the mess up is in so many Possible ways theirs

I still to this day expect an apology and they should send me the damn pan for their mess up. I am even stuck with a lid for a 20cm saute pan i cannot use for anything thanks to their long replying times

I not Only send them photos first when asked, where they said i lied, but also added a photo after with all my pots and pans together, where you can clearly see a 20 cm normal frying pan and not saute

You would expect classy service buying made in france copper pans but this of hundreds of purchases online have been the most sketchy i have ever experienced

We visited here on recommendation to see the building (which is well worth seeing) and as it was lunchtime decided to visit the 6th floor cafe for something to eat. I had some misgivings on arrival having expected something a little more in keeping with the upmarket profile of the store however we were hungry and decided to have pizza and pasta. A couple in front of me ordered food and pizza was dished up whilst the server heated sauce to pour over pre-cooked pasta (kept in a drawer) and my husband’s lasagne was dished up before he even started heating the sauce for my pasta. This was bad enough but the two people in front and at the side of me suddenly ran away and I looked down to see a mouse run back over my foot to go back to where it had come from - the kitchen! Needless to say I also walked away!

Lots of options lots of stores .. if you are visiting careful what time of day you try and take a ride share to this location they charge a lot during peak hours. Best to take public transportation if you can

Of course, I've been to bigger shopping centers than Galerie Lafayette with its 70,000 square meters of retail space. The Philippine "Mall of Asia"(N4 in the world) has 390 thousand square meters, and the world's fifth Dubai Mall is 350 thousand. But is it only a matter of thousands of meters? By Parisian standards, the Galerie Lafayette is huge. It has been located since 1912 just in the place that gave it its name on 1 Lafayette street. Together with the worst competitors of Bon Marche and Printemps, it makes up the three so-called big stores. It makes no sense to describe a shopping center of this size. Some restaurants are about 20, including on the observation deck on the roof of the Department store. Great grocery supermarket downstairs. The wine selection is amazing and probably the largest in Paris.

The Tortuga Bar / Restaurant on the terrace of the Galerie Lafayette roof is overpriced and the ignorant. After waiting 30 minutes for the waiter we decided lo leave. The food served at other tables looked like leftovers. So save your time and look around for a nice bar in the neighborhood like certa or Bar Bavano next door.

Beautiful department store with a gallery and dome. We visited the 6th Floor cafe / restaurant which was very good value (self service and lots to choose from), this is where the toilets are located too and then a short stroll up one level to the 7th Floor open terrace. Good views of the Opera house, Montmarte and the Eiffel Tower - not many people present on terrace when we visited (a slightly cold April day) but for free this is fantastic! Will visit again
