On the Trocadéro in Paris, there is an air of French Riviera: amid the Palais de Chaillot and close to the Palais de Tokyo, all of Paris comes to taste chef Benoît Dargère's seafood cuisine at Girafe. Whether you elect to sit on the panoramic terrace with an unobstructed view of the Eiffel Tower or in the Art Deco dining room of 1930s unquestionable pomp, you will enjoy fish in every shape and form. Raw, à la plancha, in tataki or ceviche… the choice is yours. They also offer a selection of meats and vegetarian dishes. At the marble counter or in an outdoor wicker chair, try the langoustine ravioles in dashi-curry broth, the grilled octopus with aioli sauce and seasonal vegetables – that is unless you treat yourself to the royal seafood platter. Do not miss the desserts, especially the vanilla cream-filled choux dipped in warm chocolate sauce. Impossible to resist!
