La plus nouvelle

Sur le toit terrasse de l’iconique Galeries Lafayette, c’est l’une des tables éphémères les plus désirables de la rentrée. Avec aux commande le chef Julien Sebbag, la carte de Créatures fait la part belle aux légumes de saison avec une cuisine 100% végétarienne, entre recettes fétiches et salades colorées.

At Girafe, no need to stretch your neck to catch a glimpse of the Eiffel Tower! The rooftop terrace of this luxurious seafood brasserie located inside the Cité de l’architecture et du patrimoine will dazzle you! The cuisine is fresh, refined and elegant. You’re in seventh heaven!

The fashionistas’ choice

Perched on the roof of the Printemps du Goût at the Printemps Haussmann department store, Perruche goes all out with culinary elegance and gastronomic delight. Exotic plants, Paris spread out beneath your feet, sparkling cocktails and delicious dishes make it one of the trendiest terraces in the city.

The waterside choice

Sitting opposite Lac d’Enghien-les-Bains on the terrace of Fouquet’s restaurant, you’ll almost believe you’re at the seaside. Three-Michelin-starred chef, Pierre Gagnaire, has designed a bistro-style menu, and you can watch the pedal boats while just a stone’s throw from the city. A real breath of fresh air!

The riverside choice

Head down to Maquereaux, the barge restaurant moored at Quai de l’Hôtel-de-Ville. With a two-tiered terrace, it’s an ideal spot to enjoy oysters from Brittany, whelk with mayonnaise, or an assortment of smoked fish. Anchors aweigh!

The secret choice

La Petite Venise is a taste of Italy right in the heart of the Château de Versailles grounds. In this bucolic setting, with a shady terrace and cuisine straight from Italy, enjoy a royal luncheon, to the backdrop of the Grand Canal and the Fountain of Apollo.

The high choice

At the top of the Butte Montmartre, the Moulin de la Galette stands guard over its history, staying true to the guingette spirit so dear to the Impressionists of the 19th century. The traditional, tasty cuisine is devoted to fresh, good quality produce, the terrace lined with trees, and the view incredible.
