I went many times at the Italian lounge as I was staying at the Sofitel hotel and each time I ordered grapefruit juice. The bar is nice with a huge decoration of bottles and easy to find because you can access it directly from the front desk.

It gets busy in here during lunch service so get there early if you can. The food is pretty good but I didn't stand out for me. Nor did it seem too Italian but maybe that's just me. I maybe expected too much given the promotion in the hotel on how good it was supposed to be. It's a good... More

Very good food, but not too many options. My recommendation is not to arrive late at the restaurant, as the staff starts setting up the restaurant for the breakfast even if guests are still having dinner (I don´t like that and would prefer to relax while having dinner instead of looking running all tables setting for the next day). At... More

The food is small amounts, very pricey and you can walk 2 minutes and find much nicer. It ally isn't worth it, even if you just want to roll out of your room for a bite to eat.

I'll admit that I don't exactly keep track of restaurant prices in Paris, but boy did the prices here make my eyes water. When the two course set menu of the day is €39.50, I know I'm somewhere well out of my normal price range! (I think the three course set menu was €49.50.) So anyway, I went ahead and... More
