Beautiful building but the food is very average for the price and the service terrible. The waitress ran to tables quickly to check how much of a tip was left at each. She was at ours counting the money before we'd even left the table and commented that what we had tipped wasn't even a tip. Here's a tip -... More

Yes, the restaurant is beautiful and trendy and all it promises to be when you LOOK at it. However, the food was not worth its price at all. We had better food from street side cafes around Paris. The table service was not great - they made us feel as if us being there was a burden to them. After... More

This restaurant is a mix of chic Paris and great ambiance, the staff was great the only problem is that instead of having a relaxed time the rush you in to take your full order even before you are seated, be prepared and be very clear in what you want, they add 30% of the bill at the end that...

Trendy restaurant with Nice vieuw BUT!!! Prices not in relation with what you get (verry high) and they put a lot of pressure to order your dinner. They want to sell the table twice on an evening. Whine was 40 eure a bottle but tasted like a cheap supermarket wine without caracter. Paris have a lot more to offer 😢

The experience for the place was great and we had great fun at the bar and then going upstairs for dinner. Which is stunning! I had the lobster my boyfriend had the steak, it did take a while to come and when I did both the steak and lobster were cold. We told the waiter and he took it away... More

Kong is a rooftop restaurant located in a Haussmann building in the 1st arrondissement. It is a very hip restaurant decorated by Philippe Starck offering spectacular views through its high windows. We could see the Pont Neuf. Cuisine is top: French-Japanese. Service is professional and very friendly. We enjoyed the relaxed, elegant and classy atmosphere very much.

My husband and I booked Kong for out date night in Paris. I had heard really good things about Kong so was excited to visit. It's located on the top floor of the LV head quarters in Paris so chic location. As soon as you walk in you get a feel for the trendy inspired restaurant with mood lighting and... More

Very average is a summary of the food, the service would be below average. You can book Kong two weeks in advance, which we did for a table at 9pm on a Saturday night for 3ppl. We arrived, our 'table' was ready - well where they tried to seat us was a table in some shed like (wooden) side room.... More

Firstly, the food was lovely and the cocktails were perfect! the reason I mention this first as this is the only good thing about the restaurant. Me and my best friend attended this restaurant on the 19th of March 2017, in high hopes that it would be as magical as it looked online. It was our last night in Paris,... More

Description
Bold, new and spectacular, the KONG was born on May 26th 2003.
From the kitchen, decor and music, nothing was left untouched to ensure the success of this UFO that landed on the rooftops of Paris. Laurent Taieb dreamt up this creation, he hardly slept and still doesn't, in order to ensure the smooth running of his beautiful machine. From the very beginning, he has always been accompanied by his faithful talented team. 10 Years later, the daring and hard work has paid off with friends and success waiting in the wings : Philippe Starck took care of the decor, Richard Pommies, the kitchen, Beatrice Ardisson, the decks, and finally Ara Starck, the paintbrushes !


The atmosphere of the KONG bar entwines both the intimate character of a cocktail bar with the refinement and elegance of a luxury hotel bar. KONG infuses a mixture of a relaxed and elegant, classy and entertaining, lively and friendly atmosphere. On the 5th floor of a Haussmann building, every window boasts a different view: the Pont Neuf, Henri Sauvage's Art Deco design of the Samaritan building, Art Nouveau by Frantz Jourdain, the Seine, the Louis Vuitton HQ... On May 26th 2013, KONG was renovated, restored, refurbished and restyled to celebrate a decade of success and to enjoy the next decade in style and of course, good company.

Staying in Les Halles

Neighbourhood Profile
Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris, Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it houses the main shopping mall, which nestles underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and international restaurants coupled with beautiful churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and just parallel to that the Seine. The area bustles with faces from all continents and all ages at all times of the day. If enjoying high-street shopping with easy access to fast eateries and lively bars is on your agenda, this is the place to go.
