Paris has some of the finest streetscapes in Europe, and each of the city’s arrondissements offers inspiring sights. Dining al fresco is one of the best ways to soak up Paris’s unique atmosphere, and with so many outdoor café terraces, top restaurants and hidden gardens in which to dine outside, it is one of the best things to do in the city. Be it a waterside gem, rooftop terrace or hidden garden courtyard, there is something for all tastes and budgets.  Here we offer our guide to the top outdoor dining restaurants in Paris, from elegant rooftop dining at Maison Blanche to the magic fairytale gardens of Saint James.
