As the oldest café in Paris, Le Procope is an institution. This historic place exudes the former glory of the 18th century, with the shadows of Rousseau, Voltaire and Bonaparte still lingering there. The décor is sublime, with gilded bronze, porcelain, tablecloths and napkins in assorted fabrics. Le Procope’s cuisine is representative of the French savoir-faire. Try the coq au vin, the famous tête de veau, and the fresh oysters. The staff are very professional and the atmosphere has a remarkable languidness. Diners speak in a soft murmur, certainly because of the majesty of the place.
