Went here after a tip from a friend. Slightly fancier-looking that I would usually go to on holiday but I'm so glad we did. The service was absolutely lovely, very friendly waiter who was more than happy to help us with our choice of wine. We ended up ordering the coq-au-vin, which they seem quite proud of, and it was...

The atmosphere was lovely and food very tasty. Had a family lunch for one day trip and absolutely enjoyed it. The waiter was so professional and helpful. Do not remember his name but he spoken perfect English and he used to work in Sydney and London.

Traditional high quality restaurant, serving history-signature dishes. Expect to dine a full evening. The service is great as well. It may seem a bit snob, but that's the tradition ;-).

I went here to celebrate my birthday with my family and I was not disappointed. The staffs are nice. The food as well as the serving are excellent. My only problem was we were placed at a small corner table which was a bit uncomfortable. But overall, I was happy knowing that I ate and drank wine and coffee where... More

Even after about 330 years since M Procope came from Italy to open a cafe and ice cream stand in the heart of Paris, the much larger historic restaurant it is today is constantly full with tourists wanting a piece of historic French ambiance and cuisine. This brasserie serves it all up with a touch of class and authentic dishes,... More

This is a restaurant where Voltaire, Lafayette and Ben Franklin hung out. The history is great. In addition, the service and food were really good. If you can't decide what to have, the Coq au Vin is a perfect traditional French dish and it's what they are known for.

I went to this place as a part of a bike tour. It was the first cafe which was opened in Paris. The cafe's ambience is great and it's interesting to imagine how the the revolutionaries meet here. A lot of artifacts from the French revolution. Had a hot chocolate which I relished on the cold wet day.

This place is no doubt rich in history. The fathers of the French Revolution met here. Benjamin Franklin wrote the US Constitution in one of the rooms. The service is friendly and good. The food is average, nothing special. It is a seafood restaurant but the fish dishes were not impressive.

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.
