La Grande Cascade is a gourmet restaurant located in the heart of the Bois de Boulogne. For a romantic dinner in winter or an alfresco lunch on a sunny day in summer, La Grande Cascade is the perfect rendezvous for anyone who loves fine dining and beautiful scenery in Paris. Yet La Grande Cascade has not always been a restaurant, and this explains its unusual and truly exceptional decor. It was originally a lodge where Napoleon III, who came to the Bois de Boulogne to hunt, could take a rest. Over the years, La Grande Cascade has changed with the times while maintaining its unique "retro-modern" style. Inside, the gilding, chandeliers and mirrors offer a distinct charm to a residence that has retained its period magnificence.

Took some clients to dinner on a business trip. This restaurant is all about quality and service both of which were superb. We were all impressed with the food which could not be faulted and the wine selection was excellent as you would expect. This is somewhere where you would go for a special occasion or when you need to... More

Having read the reviews, I felt it was high time we went. A stroll through the Bois de Boulogne from Porte Maillot Metro station gave us a good appetite and it turned out we needed it! Whilst Le Pavillon is haute cuisine in Paris' finest style, the portions are most certainly not 'nouvelle'. From the amuse bouche right through to... More

The food and the service at this restaurant are truly superb. We chose the six course degustation menu and the quality of each course (except the cheese) was right up at 2 star Michelin standard. I should say there was nothing wrong with the cheese course - it was just rather boring and this was in stark contrast to the... More

This restaurant is located just outside of Paris Intra-Muros in the Bois de Boulogne (which actually is part of Paris). The "Pavillon" was an old hunting camp for Napoleon III. Since 1900 (approx.) its been a beautiful restaurant which is close to the "Grance Cascade". When you arrive there, you do not feel like you are Paris but rather in... More

We visited on Monday lunchtime when the weather was warm enough (just) for everyone to be dining outside on the terrace. It is located on the edge of the Bois de Boulogne adjacent to an attractive lake with its cascade and ducklings and a pair of coypu swimming around in it. We strolled here from the Hotel Molitor (next to... More

Sunday lunch, sitting on a broad terrace surrounded by flowers, under a light but effective sunshade, in the Bois de Boulogne, virtually everyone else present French nationals. Pretty nice. Then add generally delicious food and first class service. Mmmmm. We had the set menu, which offered three choices for starter, main, and dessert, and making the choices was a challenge.... More

La Grande Cascade (as the place is known in Paris) stands among mythical old-school restaurants. Located in the Bois de Boulogne, the place is set in the middle of the greenery. A slice of escapism in Paris. So what to expect? First the place is definitely gorgeous, though slightly in need for dusting - this is where the 5th star... More

La Grand Cascade is a lovely restaurant in the Bois de Boulogne. We had lunch there this week. It was excellent. The room has a wonderful old world feeling. It is an expensive restaurant but at lunch they have a fixed price menu for 79 Euro. It is a 3 course meal, but it begins with 2 Amuse Bouches and... More

Location of this restaurant is great. It is in quite place on the edge of Boulogne forest. Staff was extremely friendly. It was a bit difficult to communicate in English, but any way they helped us to select exception dishes and advised most suitable wine. Food is extremely great! For the first time visitors I’d recommend to order Menu “dégustation”... More
