There are several good reasons for choosing an intimate restaurant – for a simple romantic dinner or a business lunch, for example. The very elegant La Grande Cascade is a Michelin-starred restaurant with a historic setting in the Bois de Boulogne. The graceful dining room has a high ceiling and the tables are spaced far enough apart to give free rein to personal conversations.
For more casual dining, the Auberge du Bonheur is the perfect intimate restaurant. In winter, the fireplace provides a cozy atmosphere, and in summer the large country terrace offers all the appeal of a peaceful meal in an unusual setting.
With its many nooks, the Garnier is one of the most popular intimate restaurants, along with the Ballon des Ternes and Chez Georges – two cozy Paris brasseries in the 17th arrondissement.
In a typically Venetian decor, the Bellagio serves Italian specialties such as risottos and pastas. This intimate restaurant also has a private room away from prying eyes for meetings or other private events.
