In winter, why not have dinner by the fireside? The Coupe-Chou, in the Latin Quarter, Robert et Louise, known for its French specialities, and the Atelier Maître Albert with a rotisserie are three cosy spots.

For an upscale dinner with a panoramic view of Paris, the Jules Verne, on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower is a must. Or head to Madame Brasserie on the 1st floor of the Tower where Thierry Marx and a brand-new restaurant welcome you for a gourmet lunch or a romantic dinner. A poetry-filled menu, specially prepared for Valentine's Day, awaits you with a chocolate and cherry dessert called "Baiser de Madame Brasserie". An exclusive dessert with red apple crystalline, lychee sorbet and apple mousse, created by the pastry chef Naraé Kim, can also be found in the elegant atmosphere of the Pur' - Jean-françois Rouquette restaurant in the Park Hyatt Paris Vendôme hotel, which is offering a glass of champagne to all lovebirds on 14 February. 

The Kong, Ciel de Paris, Chez Francis, Les Ombres or Perruche: there are many great places to admire the capital while tucking into delicious food!
