Paris Travel Planner   Restaurants in Giverny, France
It's nice to include lunch in your visit to Monet's home and gardens at Giverny!




Giverny is a small village that is best known for the home and gardens of impressionist artist Claude Monet. A visit to Giverny is a wonderful day trip from Paris.

Whether you visit in the morning or the afternoon, at some point you'll probably want lunch, and there are several choices in the village.

If you're also visiting the Musée des Impressionismes, you might want to eat at the Terra Café. Weather permitting, you can enjoy your meal on the lovely terrace. The menu may be French or American inspired, so take a look and see what's being offered.

The Restaurant Baudy, just a bit farther down the road in the direction of the church, also offers a terrace and a traditional French menu.

Close to Monet's home and gardens is the restaurant Les Nymphéas (the water lilies), which says it serves "the painter's favorite recipes."

And just past Monet's home and gardens is La Musadière, a restaurant/crêperie.

For a more casual meal, you can get a sandwich, soup, salad, or a tart at the Botanic Café, and sit in the gardens.

You'll also find a number of small vendors selling sandwiches, ice cream, and cold drinks, if you want something light and quick.
