Went for pre-dinner cocktails. The place is full of character. Old pharmacy and one of the waiters was actually dressed in the era! Staff was welcoming and accommodating. We asked for cocktails no longer on the menu but they accommodated as best as possible with...More

The most incredibly rude service you could ever imagine. Rigid and impolite staff. This place used to be a cosy and pleasant hangout, but has transformed itself into an absolute disaster and a totally unwelcoming place. A huge disappointment. To be avoided at all cost.

Horrendous service in the basement. Felt like in North-Korean bar. Rude staff and very poor service. Sadly this very nice place has lately significantly deteriorated. Never again.

It's a beautiful place, serving expensive yet high quality cocktails, whose staff seems to be borrowed from Soviet times. Unpleasant, unprofessional and unbearable. NEVER AGAIN

We were welcomed at the entrance and offered a big table in the basement. However, the staff working in the basement were extremely unfriendly. Unacceptable service.

We saw a queue outside just before opened and decided to join. We were sat down quickly. The interior is amazing and is done very well! The staff are also very welcoming and friendly. I personally didn’t think there was enough variety on the menu,...More

We went to La Pharmacie for pre-dinner drinks, and we could have stayed there all night. Great vibe, wonderful experience.

Incredible interior, a steampunk cabinet of curiosities. Very inventive cocktails, all of them perfected in every detail. Price reflects the effort.

Amazing building (would be worth the visit only for the decor, an old late 19th century pharmacy). The cocktails put the accent on the originality and unexpected. Most of them hit the right spot (we only been slightly disappointed by one out of the 9...More
