My husband and I had a lovemy, unrushed meal here on a Thursday night. The servers were efficient and helpful. The fish was beyond fresh and expertly prepared and presented. The large Asahi on tap was quite refreshing and tasty. We will be back!

The food actually was rather good. However, the service was very disappointing. Not only was it very slow, but they had forgotten to bring us the correct amount of meat for 4 people, but refused to deduct it from the bill. Strange.

Friends recommended Takara - and it was a great experience. The food is excellent and the staff very friendly. Don't expect the food to arrive at the same time but it is definately worth waiting for. We will return next time we are in Paris...More

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
