The restaurant is well located, the enviroment is neat and take's you to the 17th century but besides that there's nothing special about this place. Me and wife had the "saver's menu" wich consists of onion soup, beef and potatoes and tiramisu for desert. Long story short, we had average food and a regular to overpriced dinner.

Le Procope is a favorite for birthday celebrations. Service is always superbe. Favorites are soupe de l'oignon avec frommage and any of the fish choices. Because of the changing menu, specific plats are bot reviewed. Suggested choices include the profiteroles served with a petite pitcher of hot dark chocolate syrup and the tiramisu, made in house - both large enough... More

I went to this place, because it was considered as cheap eats, but it was more in a middle range. I ordered formula (entree & plat). It was 22 euros. But food was good. and the table cloth was white and the atmosphere looked more fancy and expensive with nice cozy music.

Its a restaurant probably targeted to tourists.However, the service is awesome once you are seated (downstairs, waiting for atable even with reservation can be very tiring. +30min) The dishes are ok very classic and nothing too much gourmet. Its pricey, but you mostly pay for the location, the name of the place and decoration. I would only recommend it for... More

I ordered an Irish Coffee which was served lukewarm. The young trendy waiter made me understand in an discourteous manner that this was not his problem.

We went on a Saturday evening with a few friends for dinner. We had to make the reservation in advance, otherwise it's difficult to find a place. The service is excellent but the quality of the dishes are not special. The wine card is more expensive than in other restaurants.

My daughter booked this as a surprise for me, very big restaurant but the way it is laid out over several rooms and levels it has a cosy feel. We had the lunch menu which I thought was good value, I had the onion soup, it was sweet, hot and loads of bread and cheese on top but I think... More

Excellent "Brasserie" type of restaurant with impressive settings full of history (and character). We thoroughly enjoyed an authentic french diner with tradional dishes well prepared. Rich selection of oysters on offer and very good wine list. Impeccable service and overall good value for money :-) This is a large restaurant but booking is highly recommended We'll certainly return on our... More

We had gone to look for another restaurant further down the street that was rated well on TA. As we walked down the small rue Saint-Andre des Arts we passed Le Procope and it looked very charming. The other restaurant that was just a few doors away, was a 20 minute wait and nowhere near as desirable visually. So we... More

Because this is a famous place (oldest restaurant in Paris- late 17th century), it took almost 90 minutes for our food to arrive. Although tasty, it was not the best meal I've ever had, nor the cheapest. With that said, the presentation (chicken and potatoes arrived in copper pot) was impressive.

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.
