Nudists can indulge their culinary desires at the first naked restaurant in Paris, O’naturel
Nudists from the Paris Naturist Association were the first to indulge in the culinary delights of France’s first naked restaurant, O’naturel. O’naturel has opened within a fairly inconspicuous residential location, which preserves the privacy of the de-clothed patrons dining within.
Twin brothers Stephane and Mike Saada manage the restaurant claimed the opening night was a roaring success. Certainly, the Paris Naturist Association were avid supporters of the brother’s venture. It was inevitable that they would dedicate the first night to this group.
“They’ve supported us from the beginning, and we reserved our first soiree for them.“
The restaurant seats about 40 bare behinds. Therefore, one hopes that staff thoroughly disinfect the seats after the naked patrons use them! However, saying that, amongst naturists, it is common courtesy to sit on a towel. Indeed, the French are well versed in nudist etiquette, as around 2.6 million of them participate in a naturist lifestyle.
When patrons arrive at the restaurant, they are asked to strip naked before taking a seat. The average meal costs them around €30. And due to the open-minded attitude of French citizens, residents who live near the restaurant have no problems with O’naturel being located next door.

The French relaxed attitude to nudity
According to one neighbor, Mehdi, who lives upstairs from O’naturel, he wonders why all the fuss. “When we learned what was going to be here, obviously it made us laugh. Especially since there is a nursery next door. But it absolutely does not bother me. Also, the other neighbors. We do not see anything from the street, so cannot see what goes on inside. There is not a massage parlor.”
France already does all it can to make naturists feel comfortable. There is a public pool in Paris where nudists can swim naked three times a week. Additionally, Franceh has literally hundreds of camping sites and beaches dedicated to naturism. Recently, Paris city council allocated a section of Bois de Vincennes park to nudists.
