When the sunny days come back, the terraces open their doors to welcome Parisians and tourists to their tables. In Paris, the terraces are always full. The reason is simple: they are ideal for spending a pleasant moment in the sun and for drinking a cocktail.

Some of them are well known to the public and many new ones are created every year for our pleasure.

If you are looking for the perfect place to eat or drink, we advise you to choose one of these terraces. Between the perched terraces, the bucolic terraces or the terraces with a beautiful view, you can only find the one that will delight you.


For a successful summer in Paris, you must have lunch, dinner or a drink on a terrace. You don't know which one to choose? Here are our favourite addresses.

First of all, we advise you to go to the terrace of the Bleu Coupole restaurant. Nestled on the 6th floor of the Printemps Hausmann, it offers an exceptional view of the capital. On the menu, traditional French dishes such as mayonnaise eggs or leek vinaigrette and dishes from elsewhere such as chakchouka or fregola sarda. We recommend you go early if you want to have a seat on the terrace.

The next place to go is Les Petites Mains restaurant. Located in the heart of the Palais Galleira, this terrace will enchant you with its magnificent view of the Eiffel Tower. Moreover, you will discover the sunny cuisine of the chef Justine Piluso, ex contestant of Top Chef. We recommend you try their delicious cannelloni of the sea with lemon basil and spinach shoots.

Finally, we advise you to let yourself be charmed by the terrace of the restaurant Apicius. Chic and intimate, this green terrace has everything to please. The restaurant's menu includes typical Corsican dishes in the form of tapas and grilled meats, ideal for snacking with friends. If you want to enjoy their terrace at the weekend, the Apicius restaurant offers a delicious brunch on Saturday and Sunday.

Don't wait any longer, go to one of these superb Parisian terraces!
