Romantic eating locations and sites to visit in Paris

I will be in Paris for 3 days for my honeymoon. What are some romantic locations to visit and good restaurants to eat at?

Although very pricey, taking a dinner cruise on the Seine is very romantic. The young girl next to us said it was the most romantic date she had ever been on. That must have been the case for at least 2 other couples who got engaged on the boat that night. We were on the Bateaux Parisiens boat, the Diamant. It takes off from and returns to a location right next to the Eiffel Tower.

Ali, there's no shortage of romance in Paris. I second the vote for the Seine river cruise. Other suggestions take a walk along the Seine, view the twinkling Eiffel Tower from the Champs de Mars (or anywhere), take a look at the city from the top of the Eiffel Tower or from the steps at Sacre Cour, check out the "love locks" on the Pont des Arts bridge near Notre Dame, walk through the flower market or Luxembourg Gardens... For dinner, try the patio at the Quai Branley Museum. Congratulations on your marriage and I hope you have a wonderful time in Paris!

For me, little in Paris isn't romantic. Even the scruffy neighborhoods tend to have a sort of charm. Well, most of them, anyway. In particular the Marais at night is both exciting and romantic, lots of young couples out having fun, lots of great cafes. The Latin Quarter feels a little more touristy but is also great for strolling, sitting at a cafe, etc. My favorite romantic restaurant is in a pretty unromantic location, so I don't know if it's worth suggesting...but it's intimate inside, on the outside you're on a busy street with a view of the ugly montparnasse tower. but great fresh oysters are always romantic! Chez Janou is a great place serving Provencal food near Place du Vosages (my french spelling again, help!) on a quiet street with a romantic terrace, although it does get crowded so reservations are a good idea. Price is reasonable though. Getting ice cream at Berthillion on the Ile St. Louis is pretty romantic! Buying cheese and bread and meat and having a picnic at one of Paris' miilion parks and squares is also fantastic.

Ile St. Louis is very romantic, and a nice neighborhood to walk around with amazing views. Cafe Med (a restaurant, not a cafe) on the main street is very romantic and inexpensive.
