Flora Danica is situated in the 8th arrondissement of Paris and located on the most famous avenue in the
world, the Avenue des Champs Elysees and
when dining inside it is more like being in any of the many restaurants in Paris, with the fresh food
served to you in a clean cut modern interior with unusual hanging lamps.
But this is a very different place to your normal Paris café or tea salon, where they also
have a take away service for delicious sandwiches and other delights that you see, so it
is a great way of experiencing a completely different style of cuisine.
Fish is always featured highly on the menu at this Paris
restaurant and they serve excellent fresh fish in a variety of ways from raw or
marinated through to cooked grilled or smoked, and one particular signature dish is the
salmon fillet that is grilled on one side. Another signature dish for those that
like meat is the very tender reindeer steak roasted in brown beer.
Also there is a Sunday Brunch in a buffet-style, that is extremely popular and very
beneficial if you have trouble trying to decide not just the type of food, but how you
would like it prepared. For instance, they will provide salmon and herrings cooked
in different ways, along with meat dishes including roasts, plus salads, raw and cooked
vegetables, cheeses, and desserts such as rice pudding, chocolate mousse or fruit salad.
