A chic and lush oasis in Paris for serene gourmet breaks

  • A green haven in the Les Halles quarter

  • A chic menu with modern, in-season cuisine

  • Upscale tea time for a gourmet break

  • Heated dome in winter and garden in summer

Discover a secret garden in Paris designed to recharge your batteries. This exceptional setting evolves with the seasons, as does the menu, to offer you an unforgettable experience all year round. Enjoy decadent dishes while savouring the peaceful atmosphere of our restaurant, located just a few steps from Châtelet-les-Halles.

In the sun or under the dome, Le Jardin Privé is a magical setting for an interlude in the French capital. Have a seat on the terrace, and let the gentle greens of the trees and the panoramic plant wall soothe your spirits. The wrought-iron tables scattered around this tiny urban jungle create an intimate space conducive to conversations with friends or colleagues.

The seasons inspire the creativity of chef Jonathan Brandouy, who oversees a menu filled with international bistronomic cuisine. Enjoy revisited French classics and colourful dishes featuring products from land or sea. We also invite you to choose from our selection of simpler fare that's just as delicious, such as a Caesar salad or an organic burger.

In the afternoon, don't miss the famous T' Time by Sarah Ifrah Ohana, our fabulous pastry chef. Her sweet creations, refined delicacies and guilty pleasures are the perfect accompaniments to a pot of Japanese tea or a glass of champagne.

This green haven is also home to a lovely wooden bar, a privileged spot for sipping a cocktail or mocktail. Also on the programme are happy hours, afterwork drinks and DJ sets to help you unplug from everyday life and fully relax.

    (Translated by Google) Deplorable welcome! Run away
    Reservation in the bubble for a birthday, arrive on the big day and then you are told “ah sorry the bubble is privatized we sent you an email to warn you”! When I ask to see this email because I never received it, there is no one left. So what's more, the manager THIPHANIE is openly lying. Not even a call 1 day before to warn or apologize. Very disappointed especially on the day of a birthday. It’s the lack of professionalism that I actually blame.

    In the reservation comment we made it clear in the bubble.
    In the end we found a plan B with a warm welcome and a much more appetizing menu than the one on offer!

    Accueil déplorable ! Fuyez
    Réservation dans la bulle pour un anniversaire arrivée le jour J et là on vous dit « ah désolée la bulle est privatisée on vous a envoyé un mail pour vous prévenir » ! Lorsque je demande a voir ce mail car je ne l’ai jamais reçu y’a plus personne. Donc en plus la responsable THIPHANIE ment ouvertement. Même pas un appel 1 jour avant pour prévenir ou s’excuser. Très déçu surtout le jour même d’un anniversaire. C’est le manque de professionnalisme que je reproche en fait.

    Dans le commentaire de la résa nous avions bien précisé dans la bulle.
    Au final nous avons trouvé un plan B avec un accueil chaleureux et une carte bien plus appétissante que celle qui propose !
