We went here for dinner on a warm clear night, and were seated outside at a table with a perfect view of the Eiffel Tower. The service was decent, and there are definitely some things on the menu worth getting – we shared a roasted poulet de Bresse among three of us, plus a killer bottle of Chambolle-Musigny. The vegetable sides... More

This was our 2nd time to Paris and each time we spent one evening with a view of Eiffel. Well if you're looking for a view, don't look any further because you won't find a better one. The food is ok but who cares, get a bottle of wine and just enjoy the beautiful show. Yes the tower is a... More

Its expensive and service is so very French (ie, no substitutions whatsoever, etc) but what a glorious terrace on a sunny day! Don't go for the food or the service, but for the unbeatable view of the Eiffel Tower.

What an obstacle course! First the security outside the building debated if the restaurant was open and if we could enter. The security guards inside the museum door were curt, unhelpful and tried to stop us from entering. Then we finally entered into the presence of the self important Maitre'd. He imperiously reviewed our reservation and finally decided that we... More

Many tourists do not know about this lovely restaurant inside the Musee de L'homme. It is not cheap, but the food is extraordinary and the view is stunning. Get an outdoor table with the unobscured view of the Eiffel Tower and Invalides, etc.

Our unfriendly server told us they would not allow me to order an appetizer for my entrée, which I found frustrating. Food was expensive and underwhelming. FYI Drivers cannot easily find it because location is inside Musee L’homme, most people come for views of Eiffel tower, but if raining you are seated inside and cannot see it, major downer.

We went in for lunch after an exhibit at the nearby Musée Guimet. We went in early and although we had no reservation we were seated with a wonderful view of the Eiffel Tower and its gardens. People arriving later, were not necessarily given a table to their liking, and some tables are behind a mammoth statue that totally hides... More

Description
Totally redesigned by the interior architecture partnership of Gilles & Boissier, the legendary Café de l'Homme has adopted all the distinctive trademarks of the 1930s Art Deco style that typifies the Palais de Chaillot. The natural stone and wood materials selected to create this unique decorative style evoke the fundamentals of our shared humanity to resonate with the Musée de l'Homme ethnography museum. Simultaneously original and traditional, the culinary style of the Café de l'Homme celebrates French regional produce and is passionately creative in exploring new fine dining trends from all around the world. The always-seasonal ingredients come from every region of France, and their traceability guarantees total quality control at every link in the supply chain.

Staying in Trocadero

Neighborhood Profile
Trocadero
This is the neighborhood of grand and impressive Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher, florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury and splendor, all with a view over Paris and its most famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings are small art galleries and homes of historical significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
