Paris Restaurants

Le P'tit canon


A nice little french restaurant in the middle of paris where you can enjoy the original french cuisine with high quality products.







Le train bleu

salle réjane

It was upon the occasion of the Universal Exhibition in 1900 that the Paris-Lyon-Mediterranean (PLM) Company built the restaurant. In the beginning, it was called the “Buffet de la Gare de Lyon” (Lyon Station Buffet).

It was renamed “Le Train Bleu” in 1963, in tribute to the celebrated “Paris-Vintimiglia” service, then granted historical monument status in 1972 by André Malraux.The establishment also owes its renown to the forty-one paintings on its walls and ceilings - the most famous amongst them represent the landscapes traversed by the trains of the PLM network


– and its waxed parquet flooring, wood panelling, the patina of the long, leather-upholstered wall-seats, white tablecloths and logotype crockery.

Since its inauguration by Emile Loubet, the President of the French Republic, on 7th April 1901, customers have been flocking to the restaurant. Regulars have included Coco Chanel, Brigitte Bardot, Jean Cocteau, Salvador Dali and Jean Gabin.

Paris Sightseeing 

Most important! Walk up this metal monstrosity, and don't take the cable car! Only by slowly walking up step by step through the belly of this giant monument, can you get a real feel for its history and magnitude. A Tourist Tip! - you can take the cable car down for free - no one checks the tickets on the way down!

The Eiffel Tower was built for the International Exhibition of Paris of 1889 commemorating the centenary of the French Revolution. The Prince of Wales, later King Edward VII of England, opened the tower. Of the 700 proposals submitted in a design competition, Gustave Eiffel's was unanimously chosen.

There are 2 stages that you can walk up to, and to get to the very top, you need the cable car.





A Gothic masterpiece situated in the heart of Paris. Entrance is free, and the mass is highly recommended. At the end of the ceremony, there is a procession through the narrow surrounding streets.







 As usual, if you have any further question, don't hesitate to contact us.
