This is what I would call a destination restaurant. You usually come here for the terrace, for the view on the Eiffel Tower and the Trocadero / Champ de Mars. Fair enough. My wife booked a table for us, with eyes on the Tower, since...More

This is the neighbourhood 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 splendour, 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

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.
