Is there a cooker in the kitchen? From the outside terrasse, Cafe de l'homme offers a fantastic view on the Eiffel Tower. Enjoy the view, have a drink and go elsewhere to have your dinner/lunch!

I went here at the last minute (thanks to the concierge at my hotel) and couldn't have been happier. It was a cold, rainy evening, so it wasn't possible to sit outside. However, it had the most perfect view of the Effile Tower as it shined. The manager there was wonderful and made great food suggestions.

First of all... it's incredible view. It located at chateau Trocadero, just infront Eifel Tower. It's wonderful place which I can names like luxury place. La carte de vin is soo big.

Cafe de l'Homme is hidden away with the museum itself. The restaurant is very pretty and overlooks the Eiffel Tower with a lovely balcony to enjoy the view. Inside the seating is varied and somewhat close. The menu is excellent enough choice to make the decision tricky but not too much to be over faced. The food was fantastic albeit... More

Amazing view from the terrace overlooking the eifel tower. There are heaters outside at night so you dont get cold. The food is extremely expensive and I dont believe the food is worth the money. The service was mediocre as we asked for a carafe of water when we sat down and didnt recieve it until our main courses came.... More

The place of this restaurant is exceptional, in front of the Eiffel Tour. But the food is disappointing. Products are mediocre. The service is not serious. Bad moment. And very expensive.

Spent 3-4 hours here to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Were positioned perfectly to admire the hourly sparkling of the tour. Food was good, the service was on the slow side but that might be because we ordered each course separately. Once hailed the waiter was very helpful.

Stunning view...especially from the patio! You simply cannot beat the view of the Eiffel Tower. Great place to have a cocktail and sit on the patio and watch the light show.

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.
