The reason for the high demand is necessity to book tables in advance. By the way, celebrities are often recognized here. The staff is welcoming and speaks English fluently. No wonder the average bill for two is at least € 200. 




The terrace of Café De L'homme offers a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower. The establishment is part of the anthropological museum of the same name and is located on the top floor of the Palais de Chaillot.


Guests prefer a table in the modern art deco dining room. Or on an open terrace made of wood on the upper level. So, enjoying lunch or dinner, you can savour the Iron Lady. The menu is rich in exquisite French cuisine. The atmosphere is conducive to romantic meetings and relaxation.

Barge restaurants in Paris

Paris constantly surprises and offers travelers something extraordinary and unusual. Barge restaurants and pleasure boats are another way to enchant visitors to the city. Many floating restaurants offer lunch or a romantic dinner overlooking historical sites, including the Beauty of Paris. Rest assured, you will find unrivaled cuisine and elegant presentation. 


Alain Ducasse, a French restaurateur, chef and successful entrepreneur, amazed France with a new restaurant on a floating barge. Its uniqueness is in the fact that it is electric, silent and completely harmless to the environment.


The concept of the restaurant is to enjoy not only an exquisite menu, but also to feel responsible for what is happening around.


The small cruise starts at the Eiffel Tower, opposite the Chaillot Hill. The ship runs to the ancient bridges, sailing leisurely the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Ile de la Cité, the Musée d'Orsay and the Ile Saint-Louis. Tourists are brought again to the foot of the Iron Lady in the evening, when it looks most festive in an evening dress.


Various proposals have been developed in the restaurant. For example, the Starry Night package includes a four course dinner: cold and hot appetizers, fish/meat dishes, dessert, and appropriate wines. Package price per person is € 250. It is also possible to have a two-course lunch on the barge. Prices are from € 95 to € 150 including drinks.
