I had ox tail bone marrow and octopus. Both beautifully cooked and presented. A delightful dinner. I paired that with a nice Bordeaux and a Beaujolais.

We really enjoyed this restaurant and our waiter who spoke English. A really varied menu and maybe the only slight downside was the abundance of pesto----on almost everything. Everyone loved the onion soup and I enjoyed my frogs legs, but the escargot could have just...More

Near Porte Maillot and the Palais des Congres convention center, the Ballon des Ternes is a stylish brasserie known for its French cuisine and variety of seafood. Its offshoot restaurant, the Ballon et Coquillages, invites you to enjoy shellfish seated around a circular bar. The entrance opens onto a large zinc counter while the broad banquettes add a warm touch. Both private rooms upstairs feature the same Art Deco spirit, with chandeliers and stained glass, giving an authentic "Belle Epoque" atmosphere. Efficient service and Parisian charm make the Ballon des Ternes restaurant perfect for both business lunches and romantic dinners. In summer, you can enjoy the many house specialties out in the sun.
