Location and contact

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.

Somehow we entered from the rear door from the back alley without knowing it was such a massive restaurant. Menu choices looked fine at the door and TripAdvisor comments were good so we decided to try since we're there. We were accommodated even though no...More

Le Procope is one of the finest restaurants in Paris that lives up to it's historic name. To start, the building itself is a beautiful work of art that transports the patron to 17th Century France when this restaurant was first founded! The red walls,...More

To be fair, we had a 19h30 reservation, which is not ideal as its a busy time. The menu was reasonable - in choice and pricing - but not spectacular. I ordered veal kidneys "medium to well done" and they turned up undercooked. My wife...More

This is billed as the oldest restaurant in Paris. It is huge - with dining areas that seem to go on and on and are spread out over a couple of stories. It is full of history, and it is easy to lose oneself in...More

The tables were too close to each other (not sure if it is because it's French restaurant style). We barely could move once seated. In terms of food, I quite like it as the food has no strong taste, all taste similar e.g. chicken breast...More

We make reservations on the website for 2:30 and generally walk out close to 5:00 pm. Try to go there for a late lunch. Prices are a bit lower for lunch than dinner.
