This has been the first place we chose in La defense - and by far the most disappointing. We went at lunchtime during the weekend (so you can't blame it on the big crowd of working people). I literally waited in line (standing!) for some pasta for 35 minutes, in the meantime they cooked right in front of us so... More

We are so sorry that you lived such a disappointed experience and that you do not like the concept :( For the pasta recipe, we talked to the pasta team to improve dishes. More

I visited Vapiano La Defense in Sunday 5th February. I do not speak French and I was very polite in ordering my food . I had soup and Lasagna , nothing wrong with the food but the attitude of the people there was extremely rude . Apart from the guy working at the bar he was very polite and helpful.... More

Meeting up with colleagues after a long day of working and meetings this is a perfect place to be, Enjoying the Happy Hour for live cooking stations that one make his own choice and all selected Beverages and the menu which they serve offers from salads light snacks and sandwiches with side dishes that one can opt for dinner instead....

Vapiano as usual, you get your card, find a nice place to sit and go for your meal and they'll prepare it for you. It’s fresh and it tastes really good. What annoyed me however were the high prices. It seems to be a Parisian thing to have inflated prices on food (and more).

This place was a welcome find during my extended stay in La Defense. Please take note of the order of operations listed below. 1. Enter restaurant and receive a credit card. 2. Each choice has a particular station. If you want pasta, you head to the left, pizza in the center and salads off to the right. 3. Choose your... More

We went there in the evening and got a good table but after a few minutes we saw that there was water dripping from the ceiling and then the lights turned off with may caused by the water... Other than that, the Pizza was good, even we had to wait a bit longer than usual. The biggest problem in this... More

I am not a pasta person but this place at Les quatre temps has amazing food. Ambience is very warm, enough sitting spaces and the chefs very kind. Loved the food.

Being a vegetarian with a tasty for hearty spicy food, I look for restaurants where the chef wouldn't mind customizing the food. Vapiano's primary model is all custom! you stand in front of the chef as he cooks your food, to your specification. I had a great pesto penne made from scratch with exactly the right amount of garlic, spices... More

The food at Vapiano is great it's made fresh for you and the prices are very low. The down side to the type of restaurant is finding a place to sit because it's always busy and you have to go to the counter to order/get your food yourself. No table service here. And if you are with somebody else and... More
