Really romantic restaurant with excellent food and service. The atmosphere was cousy and there was also a good choice of wines. Excellent location if you stay on the left bank. Nice area with a lot of bar and restaurants. I can really recommend this place. Not to expensive either.

We were bought here as part of our 'Localers' French Revolution tour and I am so glad we were. The restaurant is stepped in history and played major roles leading up to and in the revolution. That aside the cafe is a very pleasant place to stop and ponder life, share a cuppa with friends and relax in the atmosphere.... More

We went, as this restaurant was listed in the classic or good French food bistros lists. We were mistreated by a really pretentious and pedantic waiter who refused to explain the dishes to us and was never polite or attentive. The food arrived cold and our drinks were never refilled, the waiter pretending never to see us (the gratuities are... More

We walked up to the terrace in the back a bit early for dinner but were promptly offered drink and dinner cart. The service was very friendly and attentive, lived everything we ordered and ended up staying for a full dinner. Highly recommend.

French onion soup is to die for. Service is very traditional and good. Lovely location, apparently the oldest restaurant in Paris

A misunderstanding with FranceTourism found us here minus a reservation. Antonio & Loic seated us, graciously called & convinced the company to extend themselves. It took 20 min but everything said about Le Procope is true, exceeding expectations. Going again hopefully!

Do NOT miss out! We go every single time we're in Paris at least twice each time! My favorite room is The Chopin Salon!

Le Procope, being 50 yards from my hotel, in Rue de Buci, walking distance, always classy, and friendly, and, cannot be compared with any other restaurant in the world!! Created in 1686, what else can I say!!!!?!???!

The history of Le Procope is the reason to walk in the door, but the food is the reason to stay! The coq au vin is so good, SO GOOD, I'm salivating just thinking about it again! The dessert I ordered was a miss, but the place gets A marks for me in service, value and quality notwithstanding.

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.
