Having a meal at Le Voltaire is something special — it’s classic Paris in the best way possible. Even when you order an espresso, it comes in a beautiful painted cup on a silver tray with a bowl filled with cookies and meringues. It’s these small details along with the wonderful people that work there and the reliably good food that make it my favorite restaurant in Paris

The dimly-lit dining room interior is old-school Parisian chic — think white tablecloths, green banquettes, dark wood paneling, and black and white tiled floors. It’s romantic, warm, and special. Come with friends or a date for a celebration in an intimate yet fun setting. 

Le Voltaire is open all-day every day. Go for a French croissant and coffee breakfast, or a lighter lunch outside on the inviting terrasse with one of the best views of the Louvre in Paris.

For dinner, favorites include the steak tartare, sole, and beef with béarnaise sauce. Luckily each plat comes with a side of the best thin and crispy fries, buttery mashed potatoes, and veggies, so you definitely won’t go hungry. Make sure to save room for their divinely sinful profiteroles for dessert — you won’t regret it.
