Salon Proust - Ritz Paris

Afternoon Tea
The author of In Search of Lost Time considered the Ritz Paris his second home and it often inspired his writing. In homage to the literary genius, François Perret, the prodigiously creative Pastry Chef, has turned the Salon Proust into an experience unto itself: a tea salon à la française that elevates biscuits, cakes and other teatime sweets to new heights. One comes here for tea and nothing else. A library filled with old books, discreet lighting, velvet armchairs and Haviland white porcelain bearing the madeleine as an emblem. Here, time has stopped. Raspberry-filled wafers, Gianduja chocolate tartes, Florentine cakes, Pirouline biscuits - also known as cigarettes russes -, sugar tarts and marble cakes accompany an array of exceptional teas from TWG Tea. A tea sommelier is on hand to guide you to the right port of call - in India, China, Ceylan or Japan - and prepare the precious brew before your eyes using traditional ancestral methods.

The desserts are the best I’ve ever had in all of Paris! And that’s a lot of desserts ❤️

I had high hopes for experiencing tea at the Ritz in Paris, I’ve enjoyed an excellent tea service at the Ritz in San Francisco, so Paris should be even better, right? Sad to say, not even close.

First of all, there were no savory offerings - every single item was sweet or semi-sweet. A couple were quite tasty, but the majority were just bland and boring. I tried them all, but couldn’t finish them because, like I mentioned - they were all sweet.

The tea itself was good, very few to select from, but still good quality.

The staff was friendly and accommodating- although I felt quite rushed out of there since my reservation was close to the end of the service. If they didn’t want to seat people so close to the end of service, they shouldn’t have offered that time to make a reservation! The staff hovered and kept trying to clear everything away although I only spent 45 minutes in total there... rather rushed!

The ambiance was quite nice, but the offerings and service made it all in all a disappointing experience.

10/10 will be returning every single time I am in Paris.

Absolutely everything about Tea was amazing- the service, the place settings, the décor and the food- especially because I had mentioned when making reservations that my sister had a Gluten Allergy. They went above and beyond to provide her with a special menu that made even me jealous.

The amount of food for the value is amazing, definitely show up hungry because you will be treated to a feast.

Afternoon tea at Salon Proust in the Ritz Paris was a wonderful experience. From the moment we arrived, we were treated very well. The staff were so professional and kind to us during the several hours we were there for the whole experience. The tower of sweet pastries and chocolates were a great companion to the options of teas.

特別な日に、サプライズでプレートをお願いしたら素敵なのを用意してくれて、サービスしてくれて良かった。

日本から日本語でスムーズに予約出来た事に感謝していましが、値段が載っておらず結構高くてびっくりした。メニューの金額、予算も載ってると良い。

Proust did not disappoint!

Tall, ornately decorated wood cabinets installed along the long wall of the room form a stunning library. It acts as one of many focal points in the the room. A portrait of Proust hangs over the fireplace located at the end of the room. Some of Proust's notes hang in key locations around the room. Staff were attentive, friendly and courteous. Our service included tea with delicious treats in an atmosphere of warmth and great care.

Excellent service with friendly and bilingual staff. Unfortunately the afternoon tea had no savoury aspect to it which meant it was a lot (and I mean a lot!) of sugar.

This was my first time dining at the Paris Ritz and my party and myself were not disappointed. The staff at the Proust Tea Room are magnificent. We arrived early and were treated to a hotel tour. Not only were the tea room staff magnificent, so were the rest of the staff. This is definitely on my list of places to visit on my next trip to Paris.
