Without a reservation we arrived and were given a lovely booth table that had three other tables (only one occupied). Stunning interior. The staff were all lovely and welcoming and our waiter was very attentive and personable without being intrusive. A beautiful meal, simple elegance taken to a new level.

Decided to go for the history - place was opened in 1686 and it's the oldest still-working restaurant in Paris. Add the arsenal of famous historical figures that used to hang out there plus Napoleon's hat by the door. Keeping all this in mind, I was not expecting too much on service or food, but I am very happy to... More

The restaurant seemed promising (nice Interieur, waiters in suits) but was a total disappointment. While waiting for our table we were in good spirits, sipping on a glass of champagne. We were seated at a table in a very crowded and extremely loud and noisy part of the restaurant. And that's when the evening went down the hill. Our waiter... More

The food here is pretty good, but the history is why we came in. This is the place where Napoleon drank, they have one of his hats as he used to leave them around town as collateral for not settling his tab. The owner of one of the first French papers worked from there as well (this was told to... More

It was one of the best lunch I ever had. Real old French design, nice atmosphere, polite waiters. Tables are close to each other but the place unforgettable.

My wife and I dined here for lunch. As everyone says: historic place, full of atmosphere and charm. Seems like most of the crowd are tourists -- all the diners around us were speaking English. A tour group actually came through while we were there (a tour group??). Wait staff were friendly and efficient. Food was good, overall. To start,... More

it's pricey so our family of four stopped in mid afternoon for a snack and drinks. Really fun to see the historical documents, Napoleon's hat and going to the same cafe that Ben Franklin frequented was fun.

The Normandie oysters were delicious, and the gran Marnier crepe was extremely good. The place is old fashion with a lot of history, it is a shame there is no brochure that describes the great history of this place. The service was very good. Highly recommended!

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.
