Paris is the capital of gastronomy par excellence, and in the multitude of Parisian restaurants on offer, I will try to share with you the best Parisian restaurants that I have had the chance to try for you.
Paris would count no less than 13 600 restaurants in its 20 districts, a record! To find your way around and make a choice, especially when you don’t live in Paris, can quickly become a headache.
You can rely on the comments published on Google Map but also on my travel blog to guide you and advise you some trendy Parisian restaurants, cool restaurants, starred restaurants or romantic restaurants. I’ve lived in Paris for 13 years, and during my regular stays, I’m always amazed when I walk through the streets of the city, looking for new restaurants and bars to try.
Culture, art and restaurants are all present in the 1st arrondissement of Paris. Between museums and great institutions, there is no lack of restaurants.
From the Louvre Museum to the Halles district via the Place Vendôme, all the city’s tourist and historical places are full of gourmet restaurants, traditional French restaurants and trendy restaurants that young people love.
The second arrondissement of Paris is full of companies and startups. For a few years now, it has become the meeting place for many young entrepreneurs and executives. Here the restaurants are very varied and for all budgets. One of my favorites is the gastronomic restaurant of the Hotel Bachaumont which offers delicious menus at affordable prices.
The 3rd arrondissement of Paris hides the sublime Marais district. A mix of neighborhood and gourmet restaurants makes this district very varied and offers a very large choice of restaurants and for all budgets.
In the very center of the Marais, you can also discover many trendy restaurants like Roxo Les Bains.
This is probably the arrondissement that concentrates the greatest number of my favorite restaurants in Paris. Between Le Trésor and Homies, this district straddling the Maris district hides culinary nuggets.
Moreover, the 4th arrondissement concentrates the greatest number of Gay Friendly Parisian restaurants.
Tourist district and also historical center of Paris, it’s here that I lived for more than 8 years! Between the traditional restaurants near the Seine and the small neighborhood restaurants near the Pantheon, the choice is great!
Here you can find Tibetan, Japanese, French, Mexican, Argentinian restaurants… in short, all the cuisines of the world or almost are represented here.
From the Place Saint Sulpice to Saint-Germain-des-Près through the Odeon district or the Luxembourg Garden.
The 6th arrondissement of Paris offers a large choice of French restaurants, brasseries, bistros, gastronomic restaurants and trendy restaurants for the pleasure of residents and tourists.
The quays, the Effeil Tower, the Tour Maubourg district, its beautiful buildings and its museums are all close to many Parisian gourmet restaurants.
Many starred restaurants are located in the 7th arrondissement, and it is the occasion to taste the French high gastronomy.
Who says 8th district of Paris says Champs Elysées represent Paris! Museums, luxury stores, and chic restaurants follow one another from the most beautiful avenue in the world to the boulevard Haussman.
Historical bistros and gastronomic restaurants offer quality menus for a very demanding clientele.
It is the district of the passages, of the Opera Garnier and museums, like the famous Grévin museum! But it is also a place that is full of brasseries and restaurants in the neighborhoods that are very popular with the inhabitants but also with tourists.
One of the most famous is the Bouillon Chartier restaurant, the oldest restaurant in Paris, where you can dine for a very good price in a decor that takes you back in time.
This district of the city has changed a lot since the 2000s, and has seen the birth of many new restaurants, both chic and trendy.
I won’t tell you about my friend Tiffany’s sublime restaurant, Chez Fraiche, which offers daily market cuisine, or even less about the Hôtel du Nord which will take you back in time. An arrondissement where I like to walk to choose where I’m going to have dinner… it opens the appetite!
