The restaurant O'Naturel, that translates to "Being Natural" has opened dining for those who want to dine in the nude instead of following the boring, age-old decorum of wearing clothes for a meal. The restaurant, now open after a thorough test run by the Paris Nudist Association (of course, there's one) is rapidly becoming a sensation within the city. One can be carefree and enjoy a French meal at the restaurant as beautiful curtains adorning the bay windows will keep your secrets safe. There's a cloak room at the restaurant where diners disrobe before entering the eclectic dining area where they'll indulge in a sophisticated French meal, and sip on the best of Bordeaux, completely in the nude.

If you're heading to the restaurant, leave your fears and inhibitions behind. Who enters the restaurant is left to the discretion of the staff. Known to be extremely stringent about maintaining the naturist decorum of the restaurant, there's nothing to worry about (except spilling piping hot soup over yourself) at O'Naturel. In case you're underage, you will not be allowed to enter without your parents.
