Typical French cuisine. The concept of this place relies on childhood nostalgy: the menu is based on the four owners’ mums recipes. From starters to desserts, every meal tastes the good old French food. If you come on the first Tuesday of each month, you will have the chance to see the four mothers cooking for you in the kitchen.
Don’t forget to book a table because this restaurant is now an institution in Paris.
It is one of the bridges crossing the Seine River. The Pont Des Arts is famous for outdoor art exhibitions taking place on the bridge but also for being the place for lovers: come along with your significant other and bring with you a padlock on which you write your two initials. Then, you can « lock your love for the eternity » by locking it to the barrier. It is also a wonderful spot to admire a beautiful sunset while having a romantic picnic.

Show, Dance, Burlesque, Magic and French Cancan are to be expected if you go to this cabaret. While having dinner, you will be mesmerized by great artists performances just a couple of feet away from you. Fun and magic are definitely guaranteed in this wonderful theater.
