View over the Eiffel Tower is amazing. The food was ok, a bit too expensive for that kind of quality. I was expecting more from this restaurant.

The restaurant has just one thing great -the view. Bang opposite to Eiffel with the most drop dead gorgeous view. The food : extremely average and very far from gastronomical. We received cold fries and the plate of pasta one has to struggle to finish. The service : worse than a regular busy cafe/bar in paris. The place was half... More

Was a bit apprehensive after reading the reviews but we both loved it! The setting is just stunning! Ok, we moved tables three times (due to cold drafts) but they didn't seem to mind and I sent my steak back as it was under (wanted medium rare but it was rare) but neither of these niggles would stop me giving...

Found this place late in the day on Saturday afternoon and only 5 minutes walk from our accommodation, looked lovely and menu read well, so easy choice to give it a go. Booked an outside table for that evening. When we arrived, we were taken to the table but it was right by the entrance so a bit breezy, but... More

My best surprise find in Paris. I only had a cocktail on the terrace but it had what must be the best view in Paris and some great jazzy/blues music playing.

Description
Totally redesigned by the interior architecture partnership of Gilles & Boissier, the legendary Café de l'Homme has adopted all the distinctive trademarks of the 1930s Art Deco style that typifies the Palais de Chaillot. The natural stone and wood materials selected to create this unique decorative style evoke the fundamentals of our shared humanity to resonate with the Musée de l'Homme ethnography museum. Simultaneously original and traditional, the culinary style of the Café de l'Homme celebrates French regional produce and is passionately creative in exploring new fine dining trends from all around the world. The always-seasonal ingredients come from every region of France, and their traceability guarantees total quality control at every link in the supply chain.

Staying in Trocadero

Neighbourhood Profile
Trocadero
This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher, florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings are small art galleries and homes of historical significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
