The Best Restaurants For Valentine’s Day In ParisHow do these rankings work?
Romantic and elegant, Jules Verne is a no-brainer for you and your Valentine. It not only offers beautiful views of the city, it’s also run by internationally loved chef, Alan Ducasse. You can find Jules Verne on the second floor of the world’s most recognisable building, the Eiffel Tower. We recommend the baked lobster paired with a chardonnay.
Located in the 9th District, Pétrelle is a pleasantly old fashioned restaurant and perfect for couples. Dim lighting with faded frescoes, antique chandeliers, velvet chairs and bohemian lampshades set the scene for a memorable night out. Order a bottle of Bordeaux and enjoy one another’s company in this cosy eatery.
Grande Cascade is a Michelin starred 19th-century dream. Located in Boulogne and famous for their sophisticated menu and elegant atmosphere, it’s a perfect choice for date night. A favourite dish of ours is the Brittany crab with spiced chutney.
This gaudy and glamorous restaurant is located in Gare de Lyon train station and can’t be missed. Built in the year 1900, Le Train Bleu is a gleaming example of Paris’ Belle Epoque. Hand-painted ceilings gilded with gold and dripping chandeliers makes dining feel like stepping back in time. You can’t go wrong with any of their french dishes, but if you’re up for it, the steak tartare is a fan favourite.
If you’re feeling something Asian for this Valentine’s Day, head to La Bauhinia in the 16th District. Named after five-petalled orchid that graces the Hong Kong flag, La Bauhinia perfectly blends French and Asian styles into a unique menu. Ask for the chef’s speciality and enjoy the romantic atmosphere that La Bauhinia has to offer.
Chic, elegant and glamorous are just a few words to describe Le Cristal located in the 16th District. Velvet sofas in bright pinks, greens and blues sit under low hanging chandeliers creating a fun but sophisticated atmosphere. They offer high quality, award-winning dishes at low costs making it an excellent option for those who want a unique dining experience, without the price tag.
This trendy brasserie is in one of Paris’ most popular areas on the corner of Porte D’Auteuil. It’s design, attention to service and diverse French menu scream Joie de Vivre and make it an ideal spot for Valentine’s dinner. We recommend their calamari with a dry white to start.
