Hit the best terrace restaurants in Paris
Published on 9 July 2015, dans Visit Paris
For the enjoyment of pleasant lunches on the terrace, the Hotel Université has some suggestions for the best terrace restaurants in Paris, including the Galette Café, Les Antiquaires and Le Terminus. Plus, we simply must mention Paris Plage, an event combining sunshine, fun, activities and relaxation.
Delicious luncheons at the finest Parisian tables
In the famous district of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, at the junction of the Rue de l'Université and the Rue de Saints-Pères, can be found the Galette Café. Easily accessible from the Hotel Université, this restaurant offers delicious Breton lunches. Don't miss the crêpes et les galettes, made from organic black wheat flour. On another day, after a visit to the Musée d'Orsay, you can enjoy a pleasant breakfast on the terrace of the restaurant Les Antiquaires, located at 13, Rue du Bac, in the 7th arrondissement. The name of the establishment comes from the delightful collection of vintage items you can find there. Enjoy the sunshine on the terrace while savouring the fine flavours of their excellent cuisine. We also recommend the restaurant Le Terminus, located between the Jardin des Tuileries and Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Here, in a friendly atmosphere, you can enjoy some traditional French delicacies, including foie gras, d’escargots and aligot de l’Aubrac.
