Recommendation: meh 4.91 / 5 from 255 reviews

This is my first modular building and I was expecting great things and I wasn't disappointed. The build is challenging and has innovative uses of pieces in unexpected ways and the finished model looks amazing inside and out I would recommend this set to anyone either an experienced modular builder or as a first set of this type.

When 10243 Parisian Restaurant is released in January 2014, drive to your local LEGO store or head on over to their online store and purchase yourself at least one as it is an excellent set to build, own, play with, and look at. The culmination of colors, attention to detail, and features are all wonderful and should complement anyone's LEGO collection.

Recommendation: yes 9.5 / 10 by Nachos Grande

For adults, the set is flat out awesome. I think the design is topnotch - quite honestly it's probably the best designed set from any LEGO set that I've ever built. I would have liked to have seen one more minifigure included - you get a chef, waiter, two patrons (a guy proposing to his girlfriend), and one lad who is presumably the artist. I think it would have been nice to have one more patron so that you could make use of both the indoor and outdoor seating (and make the waiter work a bit more)! Other than that minor quibble, this set is awesome and comes highly, highly recommended!

Recommendation: yes 93 / 100 by John

It's a modular, one of the more sought after ones that's affordable (unless you're in the money for the first few), and is an absolutely beautiful addition to any collection, even if you've never had any of the other modulars before. If you're planning on using it just for parts, again, it's a ripper, with all the olive green, not even counting the other elements included.

As I said at the start, the level of detail is astonishing and you'll get immense pleasure from building it and seeing it all come together. It's such a fantastic model and build that I'm running out of superlatives to describe it.

I think I can safely say that this is quite possibly the best LEGO set ever made.

The modular building series is one of the best lines for adult fans. It appeals to the builder, the collector, and those looking for a gorgeous filler on a shelf.

There are so many little details in this set to impress you. A final example - even though the main floor is tiled, there are single studs left here and there to allow the minifigs to stand easily. It was a pure joy to build and discover all these details in the process.
