Moving this fast makes you hungry. That’s why a meal is included. You can choose from the meal options offered or create your own tasty and wholesome feast from our choice of hot dishes, salads, sandwiches and dessert. You’re also free to bring your own food to eat at your seat, or stretch your legs and enjoy it at a table in the bar area.

And to make your time on board more even more entertaining or productive, the TGV bar offers films on DVD, magazines, games for children, Paris Metro tickets, even USB sticks.
