I really waited for something fantastic, because so many people reviewed Laduree macarons as the best. I bought 4 different flavours. Actually they were ok, but I tried much better macarons in Paris! So Laduree is only a famous brand with overpriced desserts.

renowned for its macarons and desserts it would be easy to forget Laduree serves up some great entrees and plats too. The 2 course formule for 35 euros was amazing value for the quality of the food. absolutely stunning foie gras to start followed by perfectly cooked and creatively presented veal. the range of wines available by the glass was...

As it's our first trip to Paris, we asked our sweet French foreign exchange friend my step mom hosted years ago for her recommendations. Ladurre for macarons was a Must! We had a little time to spare upon our arrival before our dinner reservations, so we got a map and found the one closest to us. We didn't realize the... More

We ordered Blanquette de veau, Vol au vent and the plat du jour. It was really good. The meat was amazing. The waitress was really nice but it was slow and they forgot the fries. We got them after we finished our dishes and they are underwhelming and overpriced. The macarons were rely good, especially the Chocolate and the rose... More

Best macroons in Paris! Good flavours and cute little boxes. Must have been here at a good time because the line was short. Nice service too.

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

Thank Debbie 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."
