We went on a walking tour and this was one of the places the tour guide stopped and talked about. Look up the history of this place. They have Napoleons hat that he left for collateral when he didn't have money to pay for his dinner. We had a drink and the staff was great they took our picture and... More

We happened upon this lovely restaurant walking through a charming passageway and the smell drew us in. We ate outside and enjoyed the people watching. The service was outstanding...truly it could not have been better. The food...the best we had on our trip! We had a hearty and delicious bowl of french onion soup. My husband's choice was a delectable... More

The oldest Cafe in paris, what a treat - although I did take the cheaper option of the 2 course set menu for lunch, I wasn't disappointed. Amazing food, Great service and a beautiful historical setting to eat in! Psssst - check up stairs, when you visit the Loo! (the palce is a museum too) Sshhh! ;-)

We visited this restaurant because my husband heard it was where Voltaire visited and dined. The food was delicious and we would highly recommend this restaurant.

Back after 4 years at Le Procope. Nothing changed :) just like the last couple of hundred years. Great lunch. Good menu. Well priced and good quality. Good service. Felt just as special as napoleon who did eat here. Next time in Paris we will go back. Great place!

This is the oldest restaurant in Paris, est. 1686, said to be frequented by Voltaire... although he must have been dining elsewhere the evening we were there. :-) Escargot was wonderful, as were both main dishes. We especially enjoyed the ancient wine drinking and food preparation artifacts on display throughout the restaurant. One of our favorite restaurants of our two... More

We visited Le Procope for a short time. We walked there while sightseeing on our own and just walked inside. From the outside it does not look like anything special, except for the sign indicating what it is. The place looks just absolutely amazing, as if from another era. In fact it was opened in 1686 by an Italian, Francesco... More

Been there with my husband for dinner. The reason we picked this restaurant is the history and story behind it. We both had set meal, I had a cod for my main, to be honest, I didn't quite like it as it tasted like not been seasoned. My husband quite like his beef steak, he said it was lovely.

I travelled with a group of students throughout France and Italy last month, and one student celebrated a birthday while in Paris. Another student had requested to see as many sites as possible related to the Revolution. Quite a few wanted to try escargots. We splurged and hit 3 birds with one stone at Le Procope! I could go on... More

Le Procope founded in 1686 by the Sicilian Francesco Procopio Dei Coltelli, is considered to be one of the oldest cafes in Paris, as well as a legendary meeting place for artists and intellectuals. You'll be surprised as much by the decor of the three-hundred-year-old restaurant, marked by the historical events it has witnessed over the years, as by its culinary classics, such as the coq au vin or whiting and its creams and sorbets made by the House. A historic cafe to try for a full meal or even a cup of tea and a sweet pastry.
