Where to Eat in Paris – 10 Must-See Restaurants

Our columnist based in the French capital has selected 10 tips on where to eat in Paris for all occasions that fit in your pocket!

1. Hugo

This small, authentic French bistro tops this list for a very simple reason: it's very rare to eat good French food at an affordable price. Usually, French restaurants are either expensive and good or they are affordable (with “formulas” – main course and starter and/or dessert) but not very good. The truth is that in most cases, to eat well at a fair price, one must resort to international restaurants (mostly Italians, there are many very good ones here). That's why I like Hugo so much, he has a very precious cost-benefit ratio. That's also why it's full and, as it's small, reservations are highly recommended. Just don't be late, as the 15 minute delay tolerance won't be extended #cricri

2. Soon Fresh

is currently mine Italian restaurant favorite in town. Located right in the center of Paris, in the region of Chatêlet – Forum Les Halles, a few minutes from the metro and surrounded by other restaurants and bars. Presto Fresco offers food worthy of what we find in Bologna and Napoli: generous portions, fresh pasta and fair prices. I have a love affair with the truffle pizza there (actually with the truffle dough too) because in addition to being delicious, there is a lot of truffle, no miserable portions for English to see.

3. Good

Bon is located in the quiet and residential 16ème district, yet easily accessible from public transport. With original and contemporary decor signed by Phillipe Starck, this restaurant is a great option for those looking for something more funky and at the same time intimate. Each of its rooms has a theme: a Library, a “Vinoteca” room, and a room with a chimney, as well as a terrace and a space reserved for smokers. With an Asian inspiration, Bon offers lunch formulas from 27 to 32 euros. This is definitely a restaurant that lives up to its name! It's a great option for those looking for something a little more sophisticated but still on an affordable budget.

4. Ober Mamma

Considered a Trattoria and cocktail bar, Ober Mamma arrived in the city a few years ago but has already won the hearts of Parisians. This explains why he lives full even after so long and the competition has already “imitated” his most famous dish. O Ober Mom invented nothing less than the best sweet pizza in the world: a white dough that arrives at your table accompanied by a 5 kg pot of Nutella. That's right, you're the pizzaiolo of the house: help yourself to this bucket of nutella, you can eat pizza with nutella or in my case, nutella with pizza #ciaodieta It's a good scandal, like everything else in the house. A little warning: arrive early, as people start lining up around 18:30 pm and there is no reservation.

5. High Stone

This chain of Portuguese restaurants spread across the France and surroundings is probably the best seafood you'll find in town. This plate in the photo, for example, with lobster, crab, shrimp, squid etc, cost around 120 Euros and is enough for 5 people. It still comes with Portuguese beans, potatoes and rice. The waiters speak Portuguese (pa) and the atmosphere is very nice, lively, pa. It is a true Portuguese restaurant, which exists in Portugal and later expanded to France! Check the website.

In the age of gluten-free and lactose-free, I couldn't leave out a tip for those intolerant and sympathizers. NOGLU (decreased for No gluten) is a French creation that was so successful that it even opened a house in New York. Here in Paris there are already three and at least the one I frequent on Rue de Grenelle is full. The prices are in the Parisian standard #fazoque, but the food is really delicious – even more considering that the dishes are gluten free and some are also lactose free. Imagine a vegetarian burger consisting of sweet potatoes, zucchini, eggplant and cheddar. Man is very good! The pizza too, in a gluten-free and lactose-free dough, with buffalo mozzarella or cheddar and vegetables.. it's easy to diet like that. Or not so much because there are several cookies, cakes and other goodies! It is worth remembering that each Noglu has a different schedule, so it's nice to have a look at the website before scheduling?

7. Cowpea

A Brazilian restaurant with the face of a tidy French restaurant and an African soul. This is more or less what we find in Niebé, in the heart of Paris, Saint Germain de Pres. With a Brazilian chef, the restaurant's menu offers our typical dishes but with an African influence and everything very cute and tidy French style. A cool thing and not very common here at France, is that in cowpea there is also a vegan menu, making it accessible to a wider clientele.

8. Mother Shelter

The most classic brunch Paris is located in one of the coolest hotels in the city, the Mamma Shelter, whose decoration is also signed by the Philippe Starck. The idea is that the space is not a prisoner of design, so you can find a giant bar in the middle of the restaurant, a large terrace and authentic decor, including a geek table hahahaha Brunch is not cheap, it costs around from 39 euros, but it's an all-you-can-eat buffet, so it obviously perfectly embodies the logic of brunch – a breakfast/lunch. And the food has everything: salads, cheeses, hot dishes, smoked salmon, eggs, fruits, yogurts, pies, breads, crepes, waffles, and soooo many other things… all delicious! #ParisGourmet

9. Recycling

Located in front of the Port de Clingancourt metro in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, REcyclerie definitely earned its place on this list for being a place that I can't even describe hahahah It's a space where you can find, at the same time, a cafe, a restaurant with an organic vibe, an organic vegetable garden and vegetarian options, a grocery shop , a space for meetings and activities…and who knows what else. I had a spinach and ricotta ravioli which looks ordinary but was delicious!

10. Laperouse

Considered one of the most romantic restaurants in Paris, Lapérouse is also one of the oldest: it dates back to 1766. I saved this restaurant for last because it is expensive (for me), but it is well worth it for a special occasion. The atmosphere is extremely intimate and elegant, in an old “private hotel” owned by an employee of the King. Located on Île Saint-Louis facing the rio Sena, Lapérouse became a meeting point for the French literary elite: it was reheated by Guy de Maupassant, Victor Hugo, Emile Zola and even Alexandre Dumas. Even one of the salons is named in honor of Victor Hugo. The selected audience did not stop there: numerous French political figures flock to this restaurant for their privacy and discretion, as well as members of the British royal family, such as the Duke of Windsor or Princess Margaret. Bref, the food is very good, the service is impeccable, the atmosphere is classy and the atmosphere is romantic. What else do you want?!
