Interesting decor, adequate service, overpriced and poor food. If you are looking for good French cuisine, don't go here

My husband and I ate here on our first night in Paris. We had a very pleasant meal; my husband had the beef filet and I had the roasted chicken followed by a delicious apple pie and creme brulee. Our waitress was very nice and she spoke very good English. The restaurant has been here since the 1600s so it... More

This is a historic venue. They claim Napoleon forgot his famous hat there. It is on show,in a glass box,as you enter the restaurant. Service is exemplary and efficient. And the food was old school but divine: we both had veal cheeks cooked in a casserole with thick macaroni and Parmesan cheese. The meat was melting in your mouth and... More

My wife and I dined here with friends in November 2016, as a late celebration of a birthday. The food was generally good, especially the sea bass dish I had, but the lobster pasta dish, one of their signature offerings and priced quite highly, was disappointing. Since it came with very little sauce, the pasta got cold and rubbery quite... More

We ate here twice in three days. The beef cheek and macaroni cheese is AMAZING and the portion is huge! I am back home right now salivating and wondering when I will be able to taste this again......

We were taken to this (apparently the oldest cafe in Paris, established in 1686) as part of an electric bike tour we did (which is a "must-do" in Paris. See my review of that). Procope has excellent coffee and hot chocolate for our kids, but it's the furnishings and incredible objects they have on display that is stunning: One of... More

It is undoubtedly a place where the Parisian bohemian remains. Place full of history, where part of the illustrious ones of Paris sat down to eat and to drink in their tertúlias. Good food, good wine list and quality vi price acceptable. The service without any repair. Very good, I recommend

We never fail to return to Le Procope, the oldest restaurant in Paris. Voltaire, Ben Franklin and so many more have sat at those tables, eating, drinking, discussing, writing. It's always our first night in Paris whenever we return, it won't disappoint. Let me know how you like it. They also serve absinthe, which became illegal years ago. Bon Apetit

Book a table online or go and reserve in person. If you dine before 7pm go for the fixed price Menu Procope which is good value and good quality food. it can get busy but the decor and staff make up for this.

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.
