I was excited to go to the Blue Elephant, as I use their products. I was very disappointed. I entered the restaurant and was not acknowledged for about 5 minutes. When I was shown to my table I was happy with it. I ordered my...More

As a current resident of San Francisco, which has wonderful Asian restaurants, I was sceptical about Thai food in Paris, I was wrong. Not only is this restaurant wonderfully decorated, but the food is very good, and beautifully presented. The space is enormous! But you...More

The entrance to this restaurant is very deceptive when you enter it is very large inside with very good decoration on atmosphere. Food was of a good standard and tasty with some dashes we had not tried before. Wine and the small 25cl beer was...More

You will be seated among the trees and waterfall. That experience is unique. I would recommend having cocktails and a menu. It is expensive but worth it. I would not say the cooking is outstanding but it is definitely tasty and not disappounting.

As expected l wasn't disappointed this time round too. ambiance remains great. The place is quite packed though and it takes a long time for service to get to you. The choice of dishes is diverse. This time l had fish- the black bass.

Good menu. Service is slow and treats you like a mass food factory. Quality is medium low. Good ambiance but v loud.

Even though raining, the last night in Paris was made special by having dinner here. Everything, from the attentive yet unobtrusive service to the flavorful food, from the comfortable setting to the unique mojitos was not what was expected by looking at the exterior! Glad...More

Bastille / Oberkampf
Bastille and Oberkampf are lively parts of town made
for entertainment. During the day rows of unassuming
bars welcome customers for a bite or a drink, but it’s
at night this area really comes to life. Students and
young professionals fill the busy bars around Bastille
and Oberkampf. At Place de la Bastille, crowds flock
to the Opéra Bastille in the evening and groups wait
for coveted tickets during the day. Towards
