Take a break between two sightseeing visits to mix cultural heritage with great food at a museum or monument in Paris.

The Perchoir at the Gare de l’Est is ideal for fans of industrial architecture and offers a close-up view of the half-rose window above the entrance to the station. At the Gare de Lyon, enjoy a luxury dining experience at the famed brasserie Le Train bleu.

Over at the Grand Palais, the Minipalais restaurant offers spectacular neo-classical decor and is a delightful place to go after admiring master paintings at the museum. Traditional French fare is served in the beautiful restaurant of the Musée d’Orsay, which has 1900s decor with modern touches.If your taste is more contemporary, you’ll love the panoramic restaurant at the Philharmonie, , fans of classic French cuisine will enjoy both the food and the one-of-a-kind view at 58 Tour Eiffel or the Café des Marronniers, in the Tuileries – one of the finest French-style gardens in Paris.
