L'Oiseau Blanc, this prestigious restaurant-bar makes hotel Peninsula Paris proud. This magical place welcomes you on the sixth floor of the Parisian palace featuring breathtaking views, 360° on the most beautiful monuments of the city, including the Eiffel Tower.

Set on the 6th floor of the Peninsula hotel, L'Oiseau Blanc gourmet restaurant provides a 360° view on the most famous Parisian monuments and the capital city's slate roofs. With a sleight of hand, L'Oiseau Blanc enjoys a sunroof open as soon as sunny days are back, making the place even more exceptional!

The aviation-themed restaurant celebrates the adventures of WWI pilots who in 1927 tried to fly over the Atlantic Ocean taking off from the Bourget. It pays tribute to them thanks to a unique collection of aviation-linked memorabilia including a replica of the biplane L'Oiseau Blanc at a scale of 1:75. You can find it on the courtyard nearby.

And the food is magnificent and electrifying! Gastronomes can have a peek at what happiness is through a lunch menu and a tasting menu available at lunch and dinner.

While waiters thoroughly work in a choreographed fashion around us and the sommelier gives us advice about the greatest bottles to prepare the most perfect wine pairings, step by step, discover what chef David Bizet and his pastry sous-chef Anne Coruble have in store. For the record, Coruble has been awarded by the Michelin Guide in the Passion Dessert Promotion 2021.

After appetizers whetting the appetite, and a very green starter, the waltz of beautiful dishes starts. A high quality gourmet journey where products express themselves in the heart of very thorough plating, and where sauces are wonderfully shiny, reflecting one's face, amazed by the beauty of the dish and delighted.

From starter to dessert, an exceptional lunch, in an idyllic setting. More in pictures.
