The Bois de Boulogne has many restaurants, most of which are superb gourmet restaurants but with prices to match. Most of them cost a minimum of 60 E for a meal.
The departure is located at the Porte d'Auteuil station. You have to go around the racecourse to reach the Bois de Boulogne. There is no metro station that goes directly into the Bois de Boulogne. There are other possible stations, but in any case you have to walk before entering the wood.
