La Tour d’Argent

Gastronomy in Latin Quarter

The venerable Michelin-starred ‘Silver Tower’ is famous for its caneton (duckling), rooftop garden with glimmering island views and fabulous history harking back to 1582 – from Henry III’s inauguration of the first fork in France to inspiration for the winsome animated film Ratatouille. Its wine cellar is one of Paris’ best; dining is dressy and exceedingly fine.

Reserve eight to 10 days ahead for lunch, three weeks ahead for dinner.

Buy fine food, accessories and Champagne from its own vineyard in Le Comptoir, La Tour d’Argent's boutique on the same street, and dine for a snip of the price at its casual bistro La Rôtisserie d'Argent.
