Le Coq Rico

Le Jules Verne

For all-out Paris dining that you won't forget, three-Michelin starred chef  Frédéric Anton at Le JUles Verne is one to book. Situated inside the Eiffel Tower (it doesn't get more romantic than that), the views are as spectacular as the fine tasting menus.

Le Coq Rico

The finest Bourg-en-Bresse poultry is served at Le Coq Rico, high atop a hill in Montmartre. It could be a mountain, such is the ambience of the wood-panelled wall and comfy seats. So, settle in and tuck in.


This modern bistro reimagines French-style hors d’oeuvres and marmites, inspired by Asian dishes served in single bowls and shared plate food.
