So, I think it’s pretty clear by now that Paris stole my heart and so did the restaurants in Paris! I was positively surprised how polite and friendly the service was and how tasty the food was! French food usually divides people to haters and lovers. And I seemed to love it, to my biggest surprise.
Thus when in France, one should definitely eat at a restaurant at least once or twice even if the weather was perfect for a baguette in the park kind of picnic. French restaurants are very different starting from the athmosphere and and ending to the menu. For example I’ve never seen a menu translated to any other language in France, which is quite common, even in the high end restaurants here in Finland. Thus, it’s always a bit exciting to order in France, because one never knows what one might get.
I wanted share my experience of the Parisian restaurants with you here in the blog, since I did some great finds, that my travel companion loved as well.
Here is my restaurant guide to Paris, bon appétit!
6 Rue Vivienne, 75002 Paris
Fun and energetic athmosphere. Serves Italian cuisine and tasty wines. Excellent service with a smile! Booking a table in advance is necessary, the evenings are fully booked and the tables are full.
107 Rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris
I highly recommend eating lunch here after a long tour at Louvre. French cuisine with a lovely terrace facing the Tuiliers garden. Good service. Booking a table is necessary, this restaurant gets growded during lunch hours.
20 Avenue de New York, Paris
A bit more expensive than Daroco and Loulou, with French cuisine, romantic athmosphere, beautiful design and excellent service!
The waiter even made a joke! Remember to book a table in advance.
1 Rue Charles-François Dupuis, 75003 Paris
This is a perfect place to brunch! It was so hard to decide what to eat from the menu, so I ordered everything that sounded delicious. This place is very popular so one better come early in the morning for a good table since there’s no booking in advance!
5 Rue de Buci, 75006 Paris
A relaxed athmosphere with delicious à la carte! Booking a table is recommended, but on a Sunday evening we did get a table in 15 minutes, but even then the restaurant was full. This place is great for brunching too!
Oh my I’m starving just going through these photos… Thankfully it’s lunch time! Hope you enjoyed my tips, especially if you’re travelling to Paris in the near future!
