Café de l’Homme: Trocadero terrace-restaurant with a view over the Eiffel Tower!

In summer, Café de l’Homme is one of tourists’ favorite spots. Within the Parisian Palais Chaillot, facing the Eiffel Tower, the restaurant delights taste buds and eyes. This restaurant, opened in 2004, got a makeover in 2015 with a new décor designed by Gilles & Boissier, a new layout for the main room and the terrace and even a new menu… Rediscover the new Café de l’Homme asap!

Café de l’Homme owns one of the most beautiful views on the Eiffel Tower. The restaurant, managed by Coco Coupérie-Eiffel and Christophe Bonnat since 2004, is one of the smartest brasseries in the area.

Even if it’s hidden at the back of the Musée de l’Homme, it’s simple, from lunchtime to dinnertime, Café de l’Homme is always full. Business lunches, informal meetings in the afternoon, lounge meetings, Café de l’Homme, its chic style and its bistronomic menu are appealing!

Dare to come in the Musée de l’Homme and walk along the long corridor. Like a double-door entrance, it allows us to unwind and serenely enter this cocoon, far from the Trocadéro hustle and bustle and the many tourists.

For the room, owners of the place Coco Coupérie-Eiffel and Christophe Bonnat called on architects Gilles & Boissier, entrusted with decoration, to remind us of the charm of the 1930’s, when the Palais de Chaillot has been built. Ingeniously evoking an oasis, this décor doesn’t leave out Palais de Chaillot Art Déco codes.

Café de l’Homme (covering 5000-sqm) offers many spaced bench seats so that it can respect intimacy, while keeping a wonderful light wherever you are in the room and the comfort of large seats. The only down side, the Café de l’Homme room doesn’t enable you to eat in front of the Eiffel Tower, only the summer terrace allows us this pleasing moment!

Betting on a contemporary and elegant Parisian brasserie, the new Café de l’Homme will seduce you too with the restaurant menus, wine list and brasserie menus.
