If you are looking for a place to relax after a day of work or shopping, I can definitely recommend this place. It’s also great for a quick lunch.
I love this terrace mainly because of its perfect location: it’s right on the Rhône. It’s a bit hidden but when you are crossing the lake on your way to or from Bel-Air make sure to take a small detour and stop by. It’s really worth it. It’s in front of Mandarin hotel, just opposite from Brasserie des Halles de l’Ile. I love going there as compared to other places near the water, it does not get too crowded or touristy in the summer.
The name is the right fit: it’s paradise on earth. If you need a break, you can chill out on their deck chairs. Be careful as you will quickly get a suntan!
I usually have the ‘orangeade’, the best in town, it’s really refreshing. Otherwise they make very good mint tea. And if you are hungry they have some decent sandwiches and paninis.
It’s open everyday, but only when the weather is good, as they don’t have an indoor room.
