When we looked for Chinese Restaurants near Louvre, in Google, Dave’s name popped. We looked for it and found a very humble and tired looking restaurant, with red curtains covering the windows and entrance. Surprisingly, it’s a legendary restaurant visited by celebrities! The food here...More

I was skeptical going here based on the TripAdvisor rankings, but friends booked it on recommendations. Throwback to another era, owner greets people and they just bring food. Dim sum, noodles (which were great by the way), beef, chicken dishes and more. Service was spotty,...More

Is all about a time that was unfortunately seems that everything has been stopped at a memory. the place is very romantic and the owner is a fundamental part of this place. The food itslef nothing special, absolutely standard and it's not worth it.

Dave has hosted some famous and interesting guests to his personal presentation of fresh cuisine. Being a not so famous average American family didn't seem to matter to Dave, who treated us as his special guests. Food was worth finding, but we left feeling we...More

We had just spent a few hours at the Louvre and we're looking for some good food and cocktails. It was a Friday night near 9:00pm and most places were packed with long waiting lines. We just happened upon Dave and even though it looked...More

This place has a story, maybe a thousand behind it, which makes it an entertaining place to be. With hospitality beyond amazing, delicious food and a sumptuous setting, not forgetting the fact that we didn't even have to bother looking at a menu. Davé has...More

3.5 for the food, 5.0 for the atmosphere! Dave is straight out of the Studio 54 era - if he likes you, you're friends forever. If he doesn't, too bad for you! Which explains why most customers are regulars with the occasional newbie. The atmosphere...More

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
