Description: The restaurant's refined decor is a faithful illustration of the Art Nouveau style, with its original mosaics and its crystal Saint-Louis chandeliers a truly Parisian institution located on the Place des Ternes. The head chef prepares a refined, traditional French cuisine using the freshest ingredients. An immensely popular restaurant with both Parisians and discerning tourists, who appreciate beautifully prepared food. --Veritable insitution parisienne de la place des Ternes, son decor raffine est fidele au style "Art Nouveau" avec ses mosaiques d'origine et ses lustres de cristal de Saint-Louis, le Chef de cuisine propose une carte traditionnelle raffinee offrant un large choix de produits frais. Son banc d'ecailles en est d'ailleurs une belle illustration.

For those of us on a gluten free diet, sometimes you just want to go to a restaurant and just order from the menu and not have to explain the whole gluten free thing. This place uses the crossed grain picture next to the food that is deemed gluten free and they have the menu in english. While the decor... More

The Cafe looks fabulous and certainly has a great traditional atmosphere that made us feel that we were at a top notch restaurant. The food was well prepared, although a little expensive for what we got. Interestingly, we started with a glass of champagne for me and a Kir Royale for my partner and the cost for these two glassed... More

It's open 24/7 seven days a week, so if you are ever stuck for a place to go on a Sunday, this is a safe bet for decent food if you are starving and your flight just landed at midnight. The interior is classically art deco and it's been renovated, so it looks a bit fresher. I've been coming here... More
