Laperous restaurant is 250 years old. It's history shows up in the architecture, where, if you make a request, you can have a private room for anywhere from 2 to 6 people. These rooms were used for the politicians and other famous people of the past to take their mistresses. The restaurant has exceptional history.
The service is outstanding and professional. The dinner was beautifully presented with lots of flavour. Watch out for the duck course---it is actually two courses!
It was an amazing experience. If you are just two, ask for the Curnonsky room.
There is an extra charge for a private room, but well worth it.

The restaurant is exactly what is was looking for: Quite, nice and cozy place with a very nice service an excellent food/wine combination. No wonder why it has a very good ranking in the Gault & Millaut.

We had the menu degustation including the wines and it was really great.

Everybody who is looking for a typical French restaurant directly facing ile de la cité should go there!!

Not cheap, but get a booth to yourselves, spend as long as you want there and enjoy the advice of the sommelier if you choose the Wine menu along with the tasting menu.

The food itself was great, almost difficult to pick out a dish I wouldn't have again.

Each dish and wine was explained in detail which we found interesting. the knowledge of the sommelier in particular was excellent.

I think people that criticise the service are totally missing the point.

If you are looking for a restaurant where you can sit down at 20:00 and be out at 21:00, don't bother.

But if you are interested in spending an evening in beautiful, historic surroundings eating gourmet food and sampling excellent wine served by staff who have no interest in rushing you along, Laperouse offers a unique dining experience in Paris.

We would go again in a heartbeat and look forward to it too.

Service was just ok at best. Food portions were almost embarrassingly small, wine portions were worse and pricing was obscene. I thought the bar offered the most the money and experience but the restaurant you can take off your list. Over-priced in Paris.
