Nice location however terrible service! Arrogant waiters that are more worried with locals than tourists! Avoid it, famous tourist trap! Better to enjoy the food selection below!
the signature colours of black and puce are everywhere.... even the waitresses wear little pink scarves round their necks! The patisseries are the most beautiful works of art I have ever seen.... and the prawn risotto just out of this world.... if you want to eat not only very tasty but very elegant beautiful food.. this is the place to...

?!?! You are at the famous Fauchon, Place de la Madeleine. Where you can have a great and tasteful lunch in the cellar, seated between the bottles La Tache, Romanee St Vivant and 100 year-cognacs. Amuse, Bread, Cocotte du Jour (delicious chicken breast and potatoes in a cocotte), a glass of decent wine, great coffee with sweets... And you pay...€... More
We lunched here while we were in Paris this past August. We had gazpachos that were absolutely delicious and the salads are so well prepared!! Chicken was cooked to perfection, sliced thinly and the tomatoes and green beans were superb! Quite pricey for lunch, but it's in a convenient location and you can shop downstairs afterwards.
In our previous visits to Paris, we had desserts at this café and also brought desserts (to take to the hotel) and other goods (Fauchon branded canned goods, tea, coffee, chocolate, etc...) to take home.

Not enough superlatives to describe the array of cakes and pastries on offer here. About 8 types of eclair, and even more flavours of macarons. We ate in, with a coffee, which was lovely. The gold ceiling and pink walls give it an added touch of glamour (it might sound tacky, but it's not). Would definitely re-visit.
Sit in the small tables outside if the weather is good, take one Millefeuille au saumon and a glass of Chablis wine and have one of the nicest Paris experiences . Adorable but please be careful, you might want to buy everything there.
As a Parisian, I went there knowing I would pay a lot of money for...not so much. However I did not expect to waste 40EUR on two "ok" but small pastries and two cups of tea. We asked for a "mille feuilles" and a "cake au citron" they were out of it so we had an "éclair au chocolat" and... More
If you like the pinky and flashy decoration...fauchon is your place. If you look for nice pastry , go somewhere else. The macarons were the worst in paris...thick snd rough crust...big air pocket...filiing are ordinary. Other pastry is ordinaire and way overpriced.
