Chalet or garden
A place to retreat from the city, situated just five minutes from Place de l’Étoile, l’Auberge du Bonheur is famed for its magnificent garden, which is open throughout the entire summer; sunshine lies at the heart of its culinary ethos- light, refreshing entrées and flavourful grilled meats. When winter draws in l’Auberge du Bonheur assumes a new face, transforming into an elegant chalet where guests can hunker down by the fireside and enjoy well-loved classics of the French culinary tradition.
Summertime: l’Auberge du Bonheur opens its sun-drenched garden
When the fine weather arrives, this landmark of the Bois de Boulogne is renowned for its magnificent garden, where guests can dine in verdant tranquility beneath a veil of hanging wisterias. A little corner of the countryside nestled within the city, prized by those looking for a convivial place to retreat from the hustle and bustle of urban life.
Winter by the fireside
L’Auberge du Bonheur assumes another guise in winter; an open fire, heartwarming dishes and genuinely convivial ambience infuse the restaurant with magic. From October to April this hidden sylvan retreat is open daily for lunch, and can be transformed upon request into a comfortable veranda for casual and intimate private soirées.
L’Auberge du Bonheur: generous and authentic cooking
Echoing its ambience, the menu of L’Auberge du Bonheur changes radically between winter and summer. During the cold season, salads and grilled meats give way to a short yet more elaborate menu, along with a menu du jour. Changing in harmony with market availability, the menu is the brainchild of a Thai-born chef who has adopted France’s national cuisine as his own. Deliciousness flows from plate to plate, culminating with indulgent desserts which honour the promise implicit within the very name of this warm and charming address.
L’Auberge du Bonheur: at the heart of the Bois de Boulogne
