A gourmet venue in the Bois de Boulogne, the Parisian Grande Cascade is a Michelin-starred restaurant. You can appreciate its beautiful decor dating back to Napoleon III and enjoy its refined dishes either in the large dining room or out on the terrace when the weather permits.

For a complete change of scenery, the Auberge du Bonheur is a Parisian restaurant near the Jardin d’Acclimation garden. In winter, its warm atmosphere is ideal for romantic dinners, while the terrace in summer makes for conviviality around a meal of French specialties.
