Description: Bold, new and spectacular, the KONG was born on May 26th 2003. From the kitchen, decor and music, nothing was left untouched to ensure the success of this UFO that landed on the rooftops of Paris. Laurent Taieb dreamt up this creation, he hardly slept and still doesn't, in order to ensure the smooth running of his beautiful machine. From the very beginning, he has always been accompanied by his faithful talented team. 10 Years later, the daring and hard work has paid off with friends and success waiting in the wings : Philippe Starck took care of the decor, Richard Pommies, the kitchen, Beatrice Ardisson, the decks, and finally Ara Starck, the paintbrushes ! The atmosphere of the KONG bar entwines both the intimate character of a cocktail bar with the refinement and elegance of a luxury hotel bar. KONG infuses a mixture of a relaxed and elegant, classy and entertaining, lively and friendly atmosphere. On the 5th floor of a Haussmann building, every window boasts a different view: the Pont Neuf, Henri Sauvage's Art Deco design of the Samaritan building, Art Nouveau by Frantz Jourdain, the Seine, the Louis Vuitton HQ... On May 26th 2013, KONG was renovated, restored, refurbished and restyled to celebrate a decade of success and to enjoy the next decade in style and of course, good company.

Impressive decor for the new comers discovering Ph. Stark. The designer has great talent but unfortunately is not in the kitchen, cooking. Portions are smallest than in nouvelle cuisine. At the end you wonder: Is it worth spending 60€/person (with a Coke) to starve.

Who won't amazed with Kong glass rooftop? with a cute oriental modern interior design and nice parisian view, especially girls would love to have gathering here. Food and drink were good with the fancy price but the service ruined everything. Thats a pity! Well, its not the first comment with a bad service but really I the management should pay more attention with the servers and the costumers. Otherwise, have a drink and take a picture only.

For a trendy restaurant, the food itself was really good. The restaurant delivered on the views / decor. The bar was good, the drinks slightly expensive even for Paris and London standards but not a problem. The service was not great - the main course arrived about one hour after the starters and I had to chase which is not ideal. The crowd was very strange as well, it lacked character - but this was expected.

Really a must go place if in Paris. Great interior and views. But as always the service gets a bit sloppy when too popular. The food was excellent, but you had to kick the service hard at times to get drinks etc.

This place is a hype french restaurant and bar. You can enjoy an asian fusion dinner and then go to the bar and enjoy the DJ. It is quite posh and pricey but good value for money. The staff is not the best as in Paris waiters are not the most friendly in the world but the view the food and the atmosphere make you forget about them! If you want to enjoy good dinner and drinks in the same place this is the place to go!
