Le Chalet des Iles

Nestled in the Boulogne woods on the banks of its lower lake, the recently renovated Châlet des Iles is an address that guarantees a change of scenery from the daily Parisian hustle and bustle. A quaint wooden cabin lined with tables set out in a lakeside garden provides a unique countryside setting in Paris. Enjoy a beautiful quiet evening sipping on  refreshments and delicious French fare, such as the restaurant's grilled octopus or raspberry cheesecake.
