Le Reminet ou Cafe Procope? Or something else?

SaraPA | Feb 14, 2013 09:11 PM

We will be visiting in early spring and have never to Paris before. I have some college French and have been using Rosetta Stone. (Which I think helps, but still panic if asked a question in French...)

We are arriving from London and staying in the Marais, near the St Paul train stop. Our first night we are meeting a friend at Le Pixel (just across Pont Neuf) and then heading off on our own for dinner. After dinner we hope to take a Seine cruise leaving off of Ile de La Citie.

Initially I thought Le Reminet, but not sure now after reading reviews on CH. Cafe Procope is well reviewed in guide books but doesn't seem to do well on Yelp/TA.

I have a pretty good feel for the other days:
--May Day--leaving up in the air b/c of the holiday. Les Deux magots or Eggs & Co? Dinner (depending on what's open) Dans Les Landes? Cafes Musees? La Tartine (near apt)
--Thurs--Breizh cafe after a long day at Verseille
--Le Fumoir before the Louvre. Breaks at Willi's wine bar and Angelina. Les Regalades for dinner.
--Maris "Food by Mouth" wine tour. Already booked. (only 1 ticket left!) Chez Dumonet for dinner.

I would love any comments on our other days. But wonder if we should be going somewhere other than Reminet or Procope our first night...

Thanks!
Sara
