Lepin 15010 Parisian Restaurant Modular Set Review - Part Three

This is the third and final post about the Lepin 15010 Parisian Restaurant and today we will finish off the third floor and roof.

Part one of my Lepin Parisian restaurant can be found here and part two can be found here.

Third Floor Steps 1 thru 10


The building instructions for the third floor of the Lepin restaurant begin on page 57 of the instruction booklet.  Nothing too exciting as we start adding walls to the third floor base plate.

Back side view.

Steps 11 thru 20.


Now the fun begins.  Here's a look at the architectural details of the third floor.  I understand that the original Lego arched windows have a diagonal grill. That's pretty much the only difference for this stage of the building.

Another look.

We see the interior starting to take shape.  The artists studio has a couple of easels and a stand with paint brush.


There's another fireplace on the third floor.

Steps 21 through 39.


Yay, we have not completed the third and final floor of the Parisian restaurant.




Here's a look at how the back panel flips out to give you access to the artist studio interior.

Unlike the second floor fireplace this one has a sturdy hinged door. to keep the flames in.

This side view shows the door entrance detail with it's colourful awning and a potted plant.

Here's the same look, but with the roof closed up.

The chimey design and masonary details are continued from the second floor.

The completed structure viewed from rear.  You can see how the staircase connects the second and third floor together.  As mentioned before, I like how there is a drainage pipe incorporated into the building design.

Side view.

Front view.





Finally, here's all the minifigures that come with the Lepin set.

My 4th Lepin modular building is now complete.  This set was one of the smallest buildings as compared to the Lepin Town Hall and Fire Brigade which appear much larger.  However, the detailed kitchen and patio, the second floor apartment and third floor artist studio make up for the size difference.  Definitely my favourite features are the front facade, the murphy bed on the second floor and the two fireplaces with the masonary chimneys.  Despite it's smaller size, this was a really fun build.

Time to focus my attention to the next building, which is the Lepin Detective's office set 15011.   Another review on the way.

  1. I have the Lego original Parisian Restaurant and i have to say that it really look like the real one. The only quick think i sae different was the grill structure of the upper windows but nothing important. Eith the price of the 2017 set Square Assembly, it make me think that maybe i'm gonna try a Lepin one someday. Probably the Bank one

  2. Hi! Just wanted to ask something about the Lepin Modular buildings you've made. How exactly can you see the interior? I'm mostly curious because I've seen the Haunted House and Ghostbusters version wherein you can swing it open to see.

    1. Hi Mary, each floor of a completed modular building is removable. To see the inside of the first floor, you would remove the top floors from the building. Hope that answers your question.

    1. Hi Captain, good question. I've calculated that it takes me about 2 hours for every 20 steps. that includes picture taking and blog publishing. i don't rush my builds, so it takes me just under one week to build a Lepin modular building. Thanks for visiting.
