French cuisine has been admired all over the World and I am no exception. Delicious food and exploring local cusine is essential part of the trip, since it is a great way to learn about countrys culutre and customs. We do use all five senses when we eat and that is why exploring new cuisine will enhance our traveling ecperience and build stronger memories.
I will present you a list of my favourite Paris restataurants (I didn’t include Michelin star restaurants) , that I believe you should try and that still affordable but offers exceptional food and experience.
My favorite restaurant in Paris is still at Hotel Costes. I love this restaurant not only form memories it brings to me and not only because it has beuatiful terrace and beautiful interior, but because of its exceptional food and because here you can see beautifully dressed people and get the real Parisian vibe. If you re not up for eating, I recommend it at least for aperitif, before starting your night out, because here you will experience the real french cocktail hour where people come to be seen and have fun. If you decide to stay for dinner, I recommend trying Escargotes Extraordinaires for apetizer and spicy lobster pasta for entree. Don’t forget to finish your meaal with exceptional Pavlova Fruits Rouges cake. https://hotelcostes.com/en/costes/22/restaurant-bar/23/restaurant-terrace/
Chez Julien is a chic French Bistro where you can enjoy cozy atmosphere over candle lights and beautiful interior. I recommend trying duck foie gras with truffles and truffle risotto. If the weather is nice, you can enjoy sitting outside overlooking Ile Saint Louise. this restaurant is registered as Historical Monument. http://www.chezjulien.paris/en/home#en-start
Le Relais de L’Entrecote is a must try in Paris. It is known by their stake in a special “no one knows how to make it…a big secret” sauce and french fries. It basically offers only that as a main course, but it is delicious. It is fun place to go with kids as well. Great food with freat experience.
Manko Paris is an amazing place to go out and even though it is not serving French cuisine, I recommend to try it if you’re up for a fun night. Here you can find everything at one spot: delicious Peruvian food, see the cabarete and enjoy drinks in a lounge with a beautiful bar, where you can enjoy experimanting with crazy cocktails.. A must when you are in Paris with friends, significant other or just a single person trying to meet new people and have fun.
L’Avenue iss known as a spot where you go to be seen and sit in a restaurant with world famous celebrities. This is where Beyoncee, Kim Kardashian, Rihana and others eat while they are in Paris. Their tuna tartare is exceptional. http://www.avenue-restaurant.com
La Duree is the chicest and world wide know French bakery eastblished in 1862. They offer delicious light salads, omlettes or sandwiches, coffee or mimosa, but what they are most known for, are their premier macroons. The alternative to La Duree would be PAUL bakery, owned by same company, but I personally prefer La Duree. https://www.laduree.com/en_int/#
Victoria Paris is a restaurant connected to the night club L’Arc. Victoria is a chic and hype restaurant with cozy velevet chairs and beautiful interior overlooking L’Arc the triomphe and amazing mediterranian menue. I ordered hummus for apetizer and veal steak for entre and it was delicious. If you prefere fish there is as well many sea food options. After midnight the restaurant turns into lounge and if you want to hit the dance floor you can go downsatirs to L’arc club, Paris ultimate hotspot. http://larc-paris.com/en/ and http://www.victoria-paris.com
