Cafe de la Paix (Le)
This cafe is undoubtedly one of the most popular in Paris. With its exquisite Second Empire style, it has forever been a favored hangout for celebrities and tourists alike. The leafy look combined with the rich decor of ornate work and deep polished wood creates an atmosphere of freshness blending with class. You can drop in here for an early breakfast or a delayed supper as the cafe remains open till late in the night. During winter, you can dine alfresco at the winter terrace that overlooks the Boulevard des Capucines, while summer months see crowds filling in at the open air terrace that gives a great view of the Place de l'Opera. While in paris, this is one destination you should not miss.
I see from other reviews I am not the first! I was disgusted to watch a mouse run accross the room and under my table then to be seen at the side of my chair (inside the cafe not on the pavement). I told the waiter expetng an apology and to be offered to move table but he shrugged sullenly as if to say 'completly normal'. I was made to feel as if I was the abnormal one even pointng this out.
I have just left this cafe, I feel quite sick at the thought of the mouse and the raw tuna I ate... are the mice in the kitchen also?. The service was apalling. The waiters surly and rude and I had to ask to give my order after waiting 20 minutes. I saw 3 waiters in all around the cafe all looked as miserable and unfriendly as each other.
A place like this, that is meant to be a top Paris cafe by a beautiful landmark should be ashamed of itself.
This is the first ever review I have felt compelled to make but I want to save anyone else from this dirty, rip off cafe.
Avoid! avoid! avoid!
