La Tour d'Argent

La Tour d’Argent is one of the most famous restaurants in the world and the setting for scenes in the movie Ratatouille.

A restaurant of that name was there in 1780. The Terrail family bought the restaurant in 1912 and still runs it. La Tour d'Argent is on the fifth floor of a fine corner building on the river left bank. The dining room is glorious, looking out over the Seine and the skyline of Paris, with the cathedral of Notre Dame nearby. The view is one of the finest of any restaurant in the world. The wine list here is legendary, offering over 15,000 wines selections from a cellar of 450,000 bottles. Choose 105 euro set menu for lunch.

Pierre Gagnaire

One of the world top fusion food restaurants. Our favorite Michelin 3 stars restaurant in Paris. Expensive. Go there for lunch and order the affordable menu 6 Balzac at 155 euros.

Pierre Gagnaire is one of the most famous French chefs. He is the Head Chef and owner of the Pierre Gagnaire restaurant. Gagnaire is an iconoclastic chef at the forefront of the fusion food movement. He began his career in Saint Etienne, a mid-size towm in France, and first won there three Michelin Stars.

Pierre Gagnaire changed the conventions of French cooking by introducing amazing juxtapositions of flavours, tastes, textures, and ingredients. Pierre Gagnaire gives his mission statement as the wish to run a restaurant which is 'facing tomorrow but respectful of yesterday'.

Cafe Louis Philippe

One of our favorite restaurants in town. We are regulars.

On the banks of the Seine river, overlooking Ile Saint Louis and Notre Dame, Cafe Louis Philippe is an affordable Paris restaurant with terrace. One of the cutest restaurants in town, Cafe Louis Philippe is what you imagine a Parisian bistro is: striped awnings topped with flower-laden window boxes, wrought iron lanterns, a bustling terrace and a forest of greenery offering a rare bit of privacy and seclusion.

Excellent two course set menu for lunch at 15 euros.
