We went to La Place Royale as a family, all five of us, as a last minute thing at the end of December. It was late, and staff was friendly, found us a table, and we had a really beautiful meal. The wine was exceptional. We had a wonderful evening and next time I'm in Paris, I will definitely have... More

Why didn't we go here before? This is the place to be for decent French food; honest and authentic. We spend two hours on a great lunch with a leak and cheese dish to start, steaks, cheese, deserts and plenty of wine. Really value for money. Friendly staff. The Place des Vosges is always a great place to be. We'll... More

I had dinner here and it was absolutely incredible. My waiter was very tolerant of my lack of French, spoke great English actually, and the food was absolutely sensational. This is why you come to Paris. If I ever come to Paris, I'm going here.

We happened upon La Place Royale on our first visit to Paris a few years ago and have been back twice since then. It's in a wonderful situation overlooking the historic Place des Vosges, great for people watching, lovely food and excellent staff. We dined early so managed to secure a table outside (in the cloisters) but an hour later... More

A very serandipitous find in the Places des Voges. We enjoyed a very well served lunch here. Extremely friendly and polite staff most helpful. The food was very well cooked delicious haricots verts and my tarte de poire was just as a French patisserie should be delicious creme anglaise and crisp buttery pastry with just the right amount of caramel...

I wasn't expecting much given the prime location and hoards of tour groups that come through Place des Vosges. But this was a winner, at least for lunch. One becomes very accustomed to subpar salads in Paris, even at nicer restaurants, but the burrata and antipasto plate I had was a step above the usual, very fresh and well-conceived. Service...

Very picturesque spot. Love the location. It wasn't crowded when we came for a late lunch. Good warm chèvre salad and coffee frappe. Just what I needed after a morning of walking. Lovely and accommodating server. Would go again. Nothing incredible but just a lovely spot,

Place Royale is enviably located in the Place des Vosges under the arches, and provides a congenial setting for pretty traditional bistro food. Starters were fine for us--burratina with tomatoes and pesto, prosciutto and very good melon. We found the vegetables overlooked, and both fish (cabillaud) and meat (pork tenderloin) very ordinary, a bit overlooked. Seasoning seemed entirely external, no... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
