The place is special. Located downown, nice atmosphere, it is a very nice choice, especially to go on a date. The escargots are very good by the beef stroganoff is the best ever.

Ile de France is a traditional French restaurant in Curitiba, old fashioned, very traditional. The waiters very gentle, but old fashioned. There is holstery on all the walls, which I don´t judge to be a higienic environment for food. I had a patê maison, which was very good, and a Voul o vent, which was one of the best I... More

While the staff couldn't have been nicer, the food was surprisingly average. The escargot was from a jar according to the waiter and the meal was simply average. While eating here fulfilled a long held desire to try this restaurant by my dinner companion, I was unimpressed except by how much my Brazilian friend enjoyed the meal. Only go if... More

Great french cuisine. Very traditional and charming, a romantic place perfect to take your girlfriend out for a special occasion. Very good wine choices. You should try the foie gras on the first course and the shrimps with herbs, absolutely delicious. It is the oldest restaurant in town, and it kept the same menu all true these years. The service...

It is a very classic place and exists since decades. Wealthier locals enjoy its classic atmosphere, but I think it is overpriced and old-fashioned.

With prices that would shame most restaurants on the Champs-Élysées, average food, and an old fashioned menu and setting this is one I wish I'd avoided. While my food was pretty good, my girlfriend hated both her starter (a well below average french onion soup) and her main course (chicken, coated in a thick black tar). They serve the mains... More
