Restaurant for Lunch in Paris - around €180-200 for 2 inc. Wine
I'm coming to Paris at the end of June for the weekend with my girlfriend as its her birthday.
I was looking for somewhere to have lunch on the Saturday. Including a bottle of wine I was looking to pay around €180-200 for two people.
We're both in our early 20s and while we'll be well dressed throughout the weekend I don't know if we would want to be formally dressed at lunch. I want something romantic, relaxed and welcoming.
Any and all recommendations will be much appreciated. Thanks.
For both great food and amazing atmosphere/view - nothing beats the Jules Verne in the Eiffel Tower. One of those never to be forgotten moments; and after your meal walk through the 360 degree view of Paris from the windows. Must reserve. Service is kind to non-French speaking visitors.
Last year for hubbie's bday lunch at le Jules Verne we managed to pay just over 200 euros for 2. He ordered 3 courses ALC while I had the lunch menu, add to that 1 apero and 2 glasses of wine. If you both order the lunch menu you might be able to meet your budget, but as hychka advises, check the site.
Saturday lunch is actually difficult (and I thought I posted that already...). Most good places (and less good) places are closed.
What I would do with your constraints is ALC Chez l'Ami Jean, sharing a couple of dishes. I had a wonderful meal there (yet again) last week : *** lobster, wonderful cote de boeuf, and of course the riz au lait still would have left almost 100€ for wine.
Otherwise, la Grande Cascade has an 85€ lunch deal with wine. Le Cinq 78+wine. La Table de JR has 59 with beverage but I don't think they offer it on saturday.
