  • The building and the panoramic restaurant are really very successful, the atmosphere of the races is to the appointment, personnel of the PMU helpful to introduce the Diners even with tiny set (you can have fun all night with €30) kitchen right honourable for as big and tourist place with a friendly and efficient service.

  • Cool experience on a cozy racetrack. Are an awful lot of people from all over Europe on this travtävling. Cozy with all the stables as you walk by on the way to the racetrack. Every 3 years since I was there, but hope to return there again eventually

  • Are already several years that occasionally I go to Vincennes to see the races, is always a thrilling spectacle, the homeland of the trot.

  • I was here for the odyssea run. Quite impressive location
  • The hippos are quite slow at this one. The other hippos are faster! I loveeee Hippos, they are so favorite for me! Fast or slow. They are the best thing.
  • We own harness horses in the USA so we were thrilled to see how the French race. We were impressed with the beautiful glass to track table side restaurants. We were seated in the Sulky Restaurant recently renamed something else, but they still called it the Sulky. We only spoke English and took a taxi from downtown Paris ( about 25 Euros for taxi each way). We needed not speak any French. We were able to order steak and fries and Coke Lites and Pelligrino. We were able to bet and win a few. The racing was fabulous and the crowd unbelievable! On our way out we stopped at the boutique and bought a hoodie and two LeTrot hats. When we were ready to leave it was a little complicated getting someone to understand that we wanted to call for a taxi, but one of the security guards let us go to the jockeys club and a lady there ordered us a cab which only took ten minutes to arrive. It was a wonderful night!
  • Great fun with the horses
  • Have only been there a couple times, but worth it if you are a racing fan and can catch some live races.
