Bagatelle le Restaurant

As his name indicates, "Bagatelle le Restaurant" is located in the Bagatelle park in the Bois de Boulogne on the west side of Paris. I've never been to the restaurant but the place is divine even just to look at. The restaurant and its lovely terrace are located in the former stables of the Park which was originally created in 1777  following a bet bewteen Marie Antoinette and the Count of Artois (the Count claimed that he could restore the park and its buildings within 2 months).
The Park is now a reference among the most beautifull gardens in France escpecially for its rose garden. I will picture it when the roses will be at there best.

Is the name of the restaurant La Fourchette? On the website for this restaurant, I see:
Menus midi semaine: 25%u20AC

Laurent, could you explain what this means?

I love the fact that your photos take us to such interesting places.

I just checked out the Street View of this park. It appears that one needs a car or a bicycle to really see it, n'est-ce pas?

To Harriet : The name is not La Fourchette which is I guess the name of the website where you found these "%". The name is simply Le restaurant des jardins de Bagatelle. You can see the menu of this website :

Concerning how to get there you can either use a car, a Velib or a bus from Porte Maillot or Pont de Neuilly subway stations.
