My Sweet Paris… Chez Julien is on the most romantic restaurant in Paris. I recommend that you get to know this special restaurant where you will feel as if you have just stepped into the perfect postcard of Paris.
Within a stone’s throw of the Seine River, in the Marais historic district and under the shadow of the majestic Saint-Gervais Church, Chez Julien welcomes you to have lunch and dinner in a Belle Epoque atmosphere, while enjoying a cosy and intimate candlelight atmosphere accentuated by lilac walls, mottled mirrors and beautiful painted ceiling.
You’re not dreaming as it really exists!
This restaurant is one of my favourites in the city… especially in the summertime, because it has one of the most romantic settings in Paris. Located near the banks of the Seine, this place has maintained the charm of old Paris. I love its ideal location on a little paved square with a magnificent view of the Saint-Gervais church… you can enjoy high quality French cuisine, signed by “Costes”.
My favourites on the menu? The lobster salad or the Chateaubriand pepper sauce… But the place is small, so reservations are absolutely necessary.

After the restaurant, don’t forget to venture a little further up the street. To the right you will come across one of the oldest houses in Paris which dates back to 1327… Just walking straight rue François Miron, make a detour to the beautiful “Rue des Barres.”
You will appreciate this houseat the corner of rue du Grenier but also the Gothic architecture of the back of the Saint-Gervais church. Through its atmosphere of medieval Paris this street is a real journey back in time!
Then go right for a about 300 meters and you will find the L’Hotel de Sens, one of the few vestiges of medieval architecture in the city constructed in 1475…

Surely you will pass one of the best moments of your life in this small quiet and romantic walk! This is definitely my sweet Paris!
