O’Naturel, a play on words with the French expression for something that is purely natural, is the name of the first nudist restaurant which has just opened in Paris.

Yes, indeed, you can now leave your clothes (and mobile phones) at the door and have your food in the nude.

Just in case you’re wondering, this is not a worldwide first, that honor was bestowed on a similar restaurant in London called Bunyadi, which opened last year and received mixed reviews. The Brits are in all not that crazy about dining in the nude apparently.

The French, however, were eagerly awaiting such a place to open apparently, as it is fully booked for the next six months.

On their opening evening, the restaurant Managers Mike and Stephane Saada said: “Tonight, we only had the members of the Paris Naturist Association. They’ve supported us from the beginning, and we reserved our first soirée for them.”

If you’re a messy eater, you might want to avoid ordering the soup, but at least you don’t have to worry about wine stains.

Eaters enter the restaurant’s cloakroom and shimmy down to their birthday suits before entering the restaurant.

To shoo away potential voyeurs, all of the windows are covered with a white curtain. But everyone in the restaurant can see everyone else. There are no private tables.

You can have a two-course menu (without wine) for €40; a dessert included will go to €50. Each plate separately ordered will set you back some €30.

The dining menu is strictly French, with Foie Gras and Canard A l’Orange.

So far, there have been nothing but positive reviews about the place, but it is of course early days.
