You don't necessarily need to go to the South to enjoy good food with your feet in the water. At the gates of Paris, the Seine reveals all its beauty. Some restaurants have understood this well and have put down their suitcases in these not so distant lands to treat us… Whether you are Parisians or Ile-de-France residents, these addresses are worth the detour and provide a change of scenery in just a few metro stations!
The Aqua in Suresnes
With her little ones fairy lights and its breathtaking view of the Seine, the Aqua has everything tavern perfect. We come here to savor a bit of Italian Dolce Vita without taking the plane. Because it is the transalpine cuisine that is given pride of place. A Sicilian-style octopus salad, tortellini with artichokes or even a Milanese cutlet… We enjoy the dishes on offer, but it's a new house that seduced us: the mozzarella bar ! In the window, we discover smoked mozzarella, di Buffala, braided or even burrata to die for. The hardest ? Choose the one that will accompany our lunch…

Polpo Brewery in Levallois Perret
Impossible to miss the Polpo brewery so fashionable is it. It must be said that with his plant decoration designed by Laura Gonzalez, its wicker armchairs and its magnificent view of the water, it benefits from many hyper instragram-friendly assets. But, the atmosphere is not everything and we also enjoy it. To stick as closely as possible to the theme, the accent was placed on the sea products. Mussels, fish in all forms, tartars... And this summer, the aperitif menu takes us on vacation to Cap-Ferret, Saint-Tropez and Saint-Barthélémy.

Feet in the Water in Neuilly
On the magnificent Island of La Jatte in Neuilly, the restaurant The feet in water offers us a timeless moment on the banks of the Seine. With its wooden construction, its tree in the middle of the terrace and its bistro chairs, this former Louis-Philippe hunting lodge has reinvented itself to become a friendly and family place. The antique furniture bring an undeniable additional charm. On the menu, we discover a fresh and seasonal cuisine made of fish in ceviche, tartar or simply grilled, but also brasserie classics. Something to treat us before enjoying this green.
