We wanted for once to try out the famous Maxim's in Paris. What a disappointment! The sole Pierre Cardin wasn't available, even though we were the first guests in the restaurant that evening. Instead, we were told by the waiter to order the other sole-option...More
Go to look around...but do not order food! You can say you were there...but were smart enough to not eat! Went in to escape the cold weather on a walk...not a warming environment!

Restaurant a part of Paris history since the 1800's. I literally promised myself I would eat there almost 40 years ago! The waiters greeted us in tuxedos and and warmth of a perfect Frenchman. We shared Bavettines aux champignons for an appetizer. I don't eat...More
