Paris or ‘the city of love’ is known for being one of the most romantic cities in the world, and it’s easy to see why. The iconic Eiffel Tower, beautiful architecture, winding cobbled streets and moonlit strolls along the River Seine are just a few of the things that make this city so captivating. Paris is also known for its incredible cuisine and there’s nothing more romantic than indulging in a spot of fine dining during your visit. If you don’t know where to start, let us inspire you with 5 of the most romantic restaurants the city has to offer…
58 Tour Eiffel:
The Eiffel Tower is one of the most famous landmarks in the world, so if you’re looking for a romantic restaurant, you really can’t beat 58 Tour Eiffel. You can actually dine inside the enormous tower on the first floor, and enjoy either lunch or dinner with spectacular panoramic views of the city. With prices starting from just €47, you can savour a delicious 3-course lunch and a glass of wine. How about a creamy mushroom soup to start, followed by tender chicken breast and a rich chocolate mousse for dessert? If you want to make your visit special, eating inside the Eiffel Tower is something truly unforgettable!

Bateaux Parisiens Dinner Cruise:
For something a bit different dine aboard the Bateaux Parisiens and admire the illuminated city at night. The glass covered boat is perfect for sightseeing as you sail along the River Seine so make sure you look out for the Louvre, Notre Dame Cathedral and of course the Eiffel Tower. Watch in awe as the city lights up and comes to life in a spectacular romantic display. Get dressed up and toast the occasion with a sparkling glass of champagne. The menu includes tasty dishes like sea bass, succulent beef fillet and smoked salmon for the main, followed by traditional French Bostock or a creamy chocolate mousse dessert.

A luxurious restaurant offering fantastic views, Kong describes itself as a “UFO that landed on the rooftops of Paris”. As you make your way up the fluorescent staircase, you’re struck by the amazing view. The glass roof is stunning and will make your dining experience stand out from the rest. Designed to be somewhere between Paris and Tokyo, the modern décor is eye-catching and definitely Instagram worthy! Come here for brunch before a day of sightseeing, or sample roasted duck breast, Wagyu beef or Udon noodles for dinner. Le Kong even featured in an episode of American Sitcom Sex and the City, so if you’re looking for something out of the ordinary, give this a try.
Pain Vin Fromage:
When in Paris you have to indulge in a feast of rich cheese washed down with some good wine, and Pain Vin Fromage, which literally translates to “bread, wine, cheese” is one of the best places to go for all three! The cosy interior, stone archways and dim lighting help to create a relaxing romantic atmosphere. We recommend the mouth-watering creamy fondue, perfect for dipping slices of thick crusty bread. You can also choose from a selection of great value meat and cheese platters that are ideal for couples to share.

Everything from its wooden panelled exterior, to the floral paper adorning the walls make this Parisian bistro a great place to come for a romantic dinner in the city. The beautiful décor, authentic French vibe and traditional cuisine make you feel as though you’re getting a real taste of Paris. Esteemed Chef Alain Ducasse (who has also worked at The Dorchester in London) is in charge here, so you can guarantee an unrivalled menu! Try flavoursome oven baked pork chops, juicy peppered rump steak or fresh fish. If you want to try something typically French, give the frogs legs a try! Dining here is quite expensive, but if you want to celebrate or end your trip in style you’ve found the right place!
