One of the mecca for French Cuisine, especially for traditional French. The dessert at the end was to fantastic, and the lobster bisque left a lingering sensation of seafood in your mouth. The fish, and beef was also fantastic, and the foi gras that came with it was perfectly executed.

Only thing exceptional was the price. Few flowers, one bread, modest cheese board, somewhat slow service. Filet de sole Ferdinand Point was the best of the 7 items on the Menu Grande Tradition Classique

For the 30 standards of great traditional French food, for grand service a la francaise, for the cheese tray and 5 tables of desserts: you cannot do any better. Mr Bocuse comes to each table and has a photo op with you. This is not for the fearful stomachs, no cream or butter will be spared and nothing has changed,... More

Ok, well that is what it felt like, going to Mecca, Mecca for French food! I must admit that I was a little nervous that this institution would disappoint, and was pleasantly surprised that it did not. I have been to quite a few 2 & 3 * palaces and to my surprise this was one of the best. Why?... More

Yes, we are self-proclaimed foodies and Paul Bocuse has been on our list for a long time. I do agree with some of the other reviews in that the food was not quite up to par with some other Michelin star restaurants but I think this restaurant is more than just the food, it is the experience. The restaurant is... More

This place is worth a separate trip for sure. The atmosphere and service are outstanding. The food also, however, it is too much. If you take a course menu, be prepared to be absolutely full to the end - thanks to big portions. After main dishes they bring five (!) tables of deserts to choose from (see photo). Gosh, i... More

Where does modern kitchen come from? Based on previous tripadvisor comment... Monsieur Bocuse is a legend...a master. He has trained so many chefs and shared his experience, love and savoir faire all around the world... If you like to pair food and wine, well, he is our father, grand father and grand grand father... Reminder... Why do you go to... More

The chef in chief will actually pose for a snapshot at your table ! This is an experience and will stay with you for some time. Food preparation is masterful, service top notch without embedded arrogance, selection of wines makes you feel humble for the rest of the meal. Save time to savor the dessert. Ambience is dated but part... More

We have been to serveral Michelin star restaurants around the would and this restaurant is, as menioned by others on Trip Advisor, a tourist trap. The food is not according to a standard you expect of a 3 star restaurant in 2012. The dishes are very big,with a lot of sauce not very nicely presented. I suggest to visit a... More

A fantastic experience in one of the best restaurant in the world. We celebrated our 30 marriage anniversary at Bocuse and it was certainly one of the best experience we had!!
