Restaurant, café & food stands

Restaurant, cafeteria or kiosk, the choice is yours.

3 fast food stands: Otaries, Valhubert et Ménagerie

These 3 kiosks dotted around the Jardin des Plantes offer the same range of fast food and gourmet snacks. To make sure you don't miss them, here's the location of each one:

Sea lion kiosk: near the Menagerie, by the Reptiles entrance
Menagerie kiosk: near the Menagerie, by the Charretière entrance
Valhubert Kiosk: on your right, as you enter Place Valhubert
At any time of day, choose from a variety of dishes - salads, hot and cold sandwiches, burgers, sweet and savoury crêpes, desserts... - with different formulas: "sandwich", "hot dish" or "child". The à la carte menu includes a range of vegetarian dishes and snacks, as well as hot and cold drinks for all ages.

Each kiosk has a 'seating' area for those who fancy a snack in the great outdoors. Unless you want to take your snack with you and enjoy it while strolling through the garden.
