Bois de Boulogne

Chez Julien

On the banks of the Seine, halfway between the Hôtel de Ville and the Ile Saint-Louis, Chez Julien is a hidden gem at the very heart of Paris. And heart is something it certainly does not lack...

Founded in 1780 and now awarded historic monument status, the restaurant still has its beautiful façade with golden lettering and its charmingly outdated painted ceiling, oozing the style of the Belle Époque.

With its imposing mirrors, vermilion banquettes, chandeliers and immaculate tablecloths, this place creates a hushed, cosy atmosphere conducive to a charming meal. The surrounds are exceptional: on one side, the banks of the Seine and the Ile Saint-Louis, and on the other, the medieval apse of the Eglise Saint-Gervais-Saint-Protais and a delightful cobbled street where you can sit out in the summer months.

The menu, meanwhile, seeks to honour the spirit of French cuisine: homemade foie gras with black truffle; cod en croûte with almonds and old-style carrots; veal rib with whey and jus, vegetables and mashed potato; cheeses selected and matured by Jean-Yves Bordier (one of Paris’s most famous cheesemongers); lemon meringue pie, etc. Chic and elegant in all it does.

Chez Julien is an iconic bistro of Paris.
