Restaurant recommendation in Paris

Hi

We are going on a day trip to Paris in a few weeks time to celebrate my father in law's 75th Birthday.

Looking for a good recomendation for Lunch. Party of 7 from age 75 - 11 must have good fish selection as some of the party dont eat meat

Central location would be preferable cost wise mid range ++ is fine just dont want mega $$$

Any help would be much appreciated

Tallivent if the budget stretches but for maximum atmosphere for your euro I'd consider either Coupole or Bofinger as these are traditional and historic brasseries with excellent value fixed price lunches with seafood and fish.

Coupole is not child friendly, but Taillevent seemed to be amused by missydarlin 'a antics when I took her for her 40th bd.

Les Ombres on top of the Quai Branly museum.


I can't find it on the website, but I believe the lunch prix fixe runs about 40ish Euro.

Sorry - don't understand. Children aren't normally 40 .... and Coupole is very child friendly unless the antics of your kids really do irritate all other customers.

To give them their due French kids are comparatively well behaved in restaurants because they eat out more often and seem to know how to behave. So eyelids are normally not batted.

I've been to Coupole dozens of times and never seen a child issue and only ever seen people's kids made a fuss of. They even have special kids menus which is hardly a sign of being child unfriendly.

I would suggest Bofinger is far better than Coupole.

Robuchon at Publicis Champs Elysees : 3 courses lunch menu euro 40 with a large selection.
Must require a table at the time of booking, otherwise you may end up at the counter
