The view was OK except they were having building works next door. The menu was reasonable varied - although some items were overpriced for what they were. The service was terrible, our friends were told they were not allowed to wait at the table until...More

I would recommend booking slightly earlier in the night so try and get a table near the front. As a couple we booked for 1930 and we were placed just to the side at the front and the view was excellent (despite the extensive building...More

Ate at George's at the Pompidou for same price and better food. Still, worth a visit for lunch. Only shame is it is becoming surrounded by higher buildings

We had such a great time. The food was good, the staff was professional and friendly and the atmosphere was really great (vibey yet relaxed). Yes it is expensive but it's very well worth it and I'll go again without a doubt.

It's like you come here for a cat walk and expect the models to serve you food. That was exactly what it was like. All style over substance. The food was nothing special and they charge you an arm and a leg for it. We...More

I have been following KONG on instagram for months ~ I was so excited to be dining here last week. Unfortunately, it was a bit of a disappointment. The service was not good, we were in the restaurant at our table for almost 4 hours!...More

Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris,
Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but
the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it
houses the main shopping mall, which nestles
underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and
international restaurants coupled with beautiful
churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to
it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and

A lift can go on the 6th floor. The stairs are used mostly to access the floor above the bar but the elevator can be used for wheelchair.

Description
Bold, new and spectacular, the KONG was born on May 26th 2003. From the kitchen, decor and music, nothing was left untouched to ensure the success of this UFO that landed on the rooftops of Paris. Laurent Taieb dreamt up this creation, he hardly slept and still doesn't, in order to ensure the smooth running of his beautiful machine. From the very beginning, he has always been accompanied by his faithful talented team. 10 Years later, the daring and hard work has paid off with friends and success waiting in the wings : Philippe Starck took care of the decor, Richard Pommies, the kitchen, Beatrice Ardisson, the decks, and finally Ara Starck, the paintbrushes ! The atmosphere of the KONG bar entwines both the intimate character of a cocktail bar with the refinement and elegance of a luxury hotel bar. KONG infuses a mixture of a relaxed and elegant, classy and entertaining, lively and friendly atmosphere. On the 5th floor of a Haussmann building, every window boasts a different view: the Pont Neuf, Henri Sauvage's Art Deco design of the Samaritan building, Art Nouveau by Frantz Jourdain, the Seine, the Louis Vuitton HQ... On May 26th 2013, KONG was renovated, restored, refurbished and restyled to celebrate a decade of success and to enjoy the next decade in style and of course, good company.
