With more than 400 seats, Le Pain Français Bistro is the largest café in Scandinavia. The 1,200-square metre venue is located at Kungsportsavenyn, the main boulevard in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Le Pain Français Bistro is also a full service restaurant, which is fully licensed and serves French cuisine with an international flavour.The bistro has three floors, plus a small basement for dining. The entrance floor is divided into two parts: the actual entrance Porte de Paris and Trochadéro, which transforms into a bar with a disc jockey in the evening.
The second floor is made up of two entresol planes: Le Salon Royal, and Le Boudoir, where fine-dining mix with afternoon tea.
Le Salon Royal
The top floor features an outdoor terrace with a glass ceiling, and is inspired by a French orangery. Next to it, there is the VIP-room La Galerie des Curiosités.

The magazine The Cool Hunter praised the design writing: “The slightly mad scale and the magical distortion of proportions, combined with an elegant use of color and texture, make the four-story restaurant into a fantastic experience.”

Le Pain Français Bistro is inspired by surreal Parisian elegance, and is a playful tribute to the late 19th century and the Belle Époque in the early 20th century; the golden era of Gustave Eiffel and Jules Verne.

The bistro opened in mid-July 2013. Guided tours of Le Pain Français Bistro for the media are available.
