Went here with my Girlfriend. Had a nice Cesar salad and she had a club sandwich, both delicious.The service was pretty good and the surroundings classically French. The reason to visit this place though is the macaroons- pick a box, fill it up, take a seat in a park somewhere and enjoy!

Girls trip to Paris had to include a ladies lunch at Laduree for one of us. Obviously it is a visually gorgeous restaurant, the pastries are created like works of art. Our problem was that we had to wait a ridiculously long time (even by Paris standards) to even be addressed by a waitress after we were seated. Perhaps management... More

It is very well presented, the shop windows are great. However too expensive and not so good the macarons, though very beautiful to see.

Fab delicious and attractive macaroons. The worse service I've ever experienced, we very nearly walked out, we only stayed because we really wanted to try the macaroons. I would never return, I couldn't recommend it, the staff were rude and very indifferent. Terrible

The place looks very nice, so go for it if a nice "Parisian" photo is what you're after. Not sure what the hype is about, for such prices I expected better quality. Tea and coffee are fine but the food is super sweet and not all that good. The macarons we got to go were stale, the whole lot ended... More

The best french pastries I have ever had. Beautiful store with the nicest people. A couple blocks off the main road and well worth the few extra steps.

This place came highly recommended by the owners of our B&B and didn't disappoint. We went to the walk-in store (they also have a salon where you can sit and order right next door). I had never had a macaron before so I wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. They are not cheap at 2,70 Euro per... More

The French toast and fried eggs are the BEST! The Parisian couples shares there food. I think that's how they stay thin. When you come to Laduree Don't share! its that good!

Visited Laduree at 75 Avenue Des Champs-Elysees several times during our stay in Paris. Macaroons are fantastic. A wonderful place to sit outside for a drink, small bite and to experience Paris. Service was always kind and very good. Prices are high but as expected. Will visit again.

Thank Paul R

"AN EXEMPLARY BACKGROUND - the history of Parisian tea rooms is closely linked to the history of the Ladurée family. Everything began in 1862, when Louis Ernest Ladurée, man of the Southwest of France, miller of his state, created a bakery that became a pastry shop, at 16, rue Royale in Paris. The highly theatrical decoration will be entrusted to Jules Cheret. THE FEMININE TOUCH - under the second empire, with the development of Parisian cafes, Jeanne Souchard, wife of Ernest Ladurée, had the idea of mixing genres: the café and pastry shop, giving birth to one of the first of the great Parisian salons. INFINITELY MORE THAN A PASTRY SHOP - this place full of history with a refined atmosphere charmed David Holder and his father Francis, founder of the Holder group. They decided to buy and then promote and expand the famous Establishment, the Mecca of Parisian culinary creation."
