Do They Live Up to the Hype?

VirgoBlue | Jan 24, 2008 02:50 PM

I'll be heading to Paris for the first time and have seen fpur restaurants/cafes repeatedly in guide books. I'm not looking for an overpriced & overhyped tourist spot, but an authentic, enjoyable, elegant experience that won't break the bank.

Are these worth all the hype?...Or should we skip them for someplace else?... I'm staying in the 18th Arrondisment but plan on hitting St. Germain de Pres and other areas.

- Les Deux Magots
- Laduree
- Cafe de Flore
- L'Entrecote

And any suggestions for restaurant(s) that "cannot be missed"?
