  • Angelina

    Paris Restaurants

    Last visit April 2014 to the Rue de Rivoli location There are many menu items on Angelina's menu, indeed we saw several people eating sandwiches and salads but my focus for my birthday splurge was two of the menu items that Angelina is famous for, the hot chocolate l'Africain and the Mont Blanc. In the late afternoon we were able to walk in and...

  • Les Deux Magots

    Paris Restaurants

    I had promised myself on my last trip to Paris that I would treat myself to a beer at the Les Deux Magots in Saint-Germain-des-Prés and raise a toast to the ghosts of Simone de Beavoir, Jean-Paul Sartres, Picasso, Hemingway and the large cast of other literary notables who have frequented this watering hole in times gone past. The cafe is...

  • Cafe de Flore

    Paris Restaurants

    Once a hangout for Sartre, Ernest Hemingway, Truman Capote, and various other intellectuals and writers, Cafe de Flore is now supposedly one of the hot spots for movie stars, models, and fashion designers. I didn't see any, but probably wouldn't have recognized them anyway. On Sunday at brunch, this is a great people watching place even if you...

  • L'As du Falafel

    Paris Restaurants

    This place has been written up so many times and many people here on VT recommend it, but until you've tried their falafal you won't quite understand all the fuss. Located in the Marias section of Paris in a small cobblestone street where many other falafal and bakery shops are located is L'As du Falafal. The restaurant front is painted in bright...

  • Laduree

    Paris Restaurants

    When I think of Macroons I always think of Lauduree, a French institution that has been around since the late 1800's. Although Laduree also sells other delicious delicacies like chocolates and pastries, the macroons are hands down the most famous of their pastries. These heavenly little treats come in a variety of flavors which are offered year...

  • La Tour d'Argent

    Paris Restaurants

    Her Michelin stars come & go, but a La Tour d' Argent event is not necessarily all about food - it is about the whole experience. Even though Claude Terrail is no longer with us, and lately it has become pseudo-fashionable to "pan" this place - (especially by snarky "experts" who, when you corner them, usually end up having to confess...

  • Café des Deux Moulins

    Paris Restaurants

    Café des Deux Moulins is a good starting point for a slow walk up the Montmartre hill. The café is known as one of the sets from the movie Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain. Some pictures on the wall show scenes from the movie. Enjoy an early breakfast here and walk the hill clockwise to the top via the lesser steep streets. We enjoyed a...

    If you go on their site, you'll see the incredible surroundings of this restaurant. It's historical monument from 1972, built in 1900, and has 41 paintings on the ceiling and walls. Service is efficient, fast, friendly, food is very good, and the price is according to the place where you are, expensive, but not overpriced. Fodd quality is very...

  • Jules Verne

    Paris Restaurants

    This was a once in a lifetime for us. The views of Paris as night came in were stunning and we were lucky to have a table by the window. We could even see folk walking below on the 2nd viewing platform . The concierge from Bel Ami Hotel had booked us in 2 months before.Not easy to find a booking later than that I am told. The decor of Le Jules...

  • Café du Marché

    Paris Restaurants

    The service here has always been great, and most of the staff speaks at least some English... Very comfortable surroundings. I have tried most of the food, and it is delicious, and very reasonably priced. Great when you just want a typical American "Big" salad - choose the Salad du Cesar..

  • Hippo

    Paris Restaurants

    Last sunday me and my daughters went to get lunch at one of the hippo-restaurants in Paris. First: extreemly slow service, we were starting to think they had forgotten us after 15-20 min, and the restaurant werent not even half full.. Then the meals.. Minimalistic in style and taste. then another terrible long time to wait after we asked for the...

  • Café Marly

    Paris Restaurants

    You couldn’t dream of a better location; this café is located in the Richelieu wing of the Louvre and overlooks the Cour Napoléon and its pyramid. In nice weather, you can drink and dine on the outside terrace and appreciate the grand views. Open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week (8 AM until 2 AM). It is also a great place for a...

  • Pizza Hut

    Paris Restaurants

    There isn't really much point coming to Pizza Hut in Paris. Save that for when you are home. However, if you must, it's just as great as anywhere in the world. The resturant in Chatelet is very popular, just next to the fountain. I like anything hot and spicy, usually with beef, onions, tomatoes and peppers....

  • La Coupole

    Paris Restaurants

    I enjoyed La Coupole. I was concerned that since it is so well known, advertised, it is run by the infamous Flo group and has been refurbished on the inside, etc. that it would be a disappointment. But it was not. The food was decent. The ambience was the high point. The place is huge, with art deco mural columns and chandeliers. It was...

  • Quick

    Paris Restaurants

    Hannah and I went here for breakfast whilst in Paris. I spotted a few of this chain around Paris although there are more McDonalds around. I wasn't sure what it was when I ordered it but it looked nice. It was delicious. It was some sort of egg and bread but with a sweet taste. Next time I am in Paris I will look for a Quick for breakfast. French...

  • Le Pot de Terre

    Paris Restaurants

    We had a very filling and amusing lunch at Le Pot de Terre, which is on a little cobblestone side street off the Rue Mouffetard. We sat outside, had a lovely, leisurely meal, and were serenaded by street musicians. At Guyon's urging, I ordered a three-course lunch, entrée (appetizer), plat, et dessert. The Alsatian food absolutely wowed us, but the...

    Never have I eaten in such an awfull restaurant! The food was terrible! All the way thrugh! I have never experienced such bad food! The waiters were angry and made it a stressful and bad stay. Eventhough we had ordered a table, strangers were sat Next to us, and our table was given away before we were finished. The waiter also wanted us to pay for...

  • Le Procope

    Paris Restaurants

    If you want to find the oldest café in Paris, then look no further than Le Procope. This café/restaurant was the first to serve coffee in Paris! Currently part of the Les Frères Blanc group, this restaurant originally opened in 1686 as a café and was a favorite of such Revolutionary luminaries as Danton, Marat and Robespierre, Age of Enlightenment...

  • Boulangerie Paul

    Paris Restaurants

    We were walking around the Marias area and wanted a little something to snack on before dinner as it would be another 3 hours before we'd be seating down for a meal, so when we happened upon Paul's Boulongarie we decided to see what we could find. I was specifically looking to have a chocolate croissant and I wasn't disappointed. The enticing...

  • Le Montparnasse

    Paris Restaurants

    One of the best moments for me in Paris was having tea at Montparnasse Tower! The funny thing is that is one of the ugliest buildings in Paris so you better get inside it to avoid it :) It was our last day in Paris before flying to Nice and it was very relaxing that afternoon sitting there with an amazing view out of our window (ok sure, on a...

    food in window looked very enticing , 4 of us came back for dinner next night on 26th may 2010. We had the assortment of Mezes. We all got food poisoning. The assortment of Mezes . Why it's going to give you vomiting & diarrhea for a couple of days.

  • Fouquets

    Paris Restaurants

    The splendid service at the table - the attendant who collected and stowed our luggage as we arrived directly from the train - the chocolate mousse - our miniature Spitz who was served his own chopped meat entree and saucer of milk - watching the "Stars" give interviews to the press - this was, in my experience, Fouquet's in the early 1980s. Today...

  • Café de la Paix

    Paris Restaurants

    a historical monument classify in France, one of the original great ones of Paris. An institution by Opéra. The mille-feuille or napoleon is a classic here since Ernest Hemingway stopped by. Linked gastronomically to the other jewel the Intercontinental Le Grand Hotel. Both open in 1862. In 1914, the taxis that went carrying troops to the front in...

    Paris Restaurants

    We had this restaurant recommended to us by a pilot & stewardess that we met near the Eiffel tower We walked in and were promptly taken back to our table that had to be pulled out from the wall so I could sit on the booth side. We immediately were welcomed by the many other people eating & drinking around us. We had a lot of fun talking with the...

  • Planet Hollywood

    Paris Restaurants

    I chose to eat here because it was the first PH restaurant I've visited. I liked the environment, decorated with movie gizmos/memorabilia and listening to the music while eating. Pasta pomodoro - oh so good. Mr. Sweden went for the swordfish and he liked it.

  • Starbucks

    Paris Restaurants

    Yes, there are Starbucks in Paris. No, that's not nearly as horrifying as it sounds. While there are cafés everywhere for lingering, Parisian-style, over your cup, the locals are in as big a hurry to get to work in the morning as tourists are to hit the streets so this is where you go for to-go. We had one just down the street from our hotel that...

  • Le Petit Prince de Paris

    Paris Restaurants

    Thanks to fellow VTer daveq we found the wonderful, reasonably priced and pretty much local Le Petit Prince du Paris. It is tucked away in a short, narrow alley-like street next to the Sorbonne, has a beautiful bright red front and a stairway that goes nowhere bedecked with a statue that looks like it belongs on the front of a ship. A quirky but...

  • Brasserie Lipp

    Paris Restaurants

    There are three famous cafes near the Church of St. German des Pres, the Deux Magots, the Cafe Flore and the Brasserie Lipp. All are mentioned in literature and connected to the marvelous era when Hemingway was in Paris. We decided to ignore the fact that they are considered tourist traps and eat in one of them just to say we'd been there. We...

  • Le Coupe Chou

    Paris Restaurants

    Arrived at 1 pm for lunch - looking forward to it based on numerous reviews and personal recommendations. We were seated in the first room (charming) and ignored for quite a while. Summary: Famous Beef Bourgignon - overcooked, dry My wife's steak tartare consisted of 4 scoops of meat and two very samll pieces of chopped tomato. Period. No...

  • Chez Eugene

    Paris Restaurants

    As almost all of the restaurants in the touristic areas this one is just another "touristic trap". With waiters keeping their hands deep in their pockets trying to create somehow a "specific" Parisian atmosphere, food with questionable taste and a cheap wine - high price, it could only give you shelter in a rainy day if you're in the area. My...

  • Chez Paul

    Paris Restaurants

    Sunday night without a plan. We ended here after searching for something open in the area and Mr. really wanted to eat traditional food (i.e. French food). The house was full and we didn't see any menus visible so we just checked what people were eating on their plates (we were peeking from the window). Since we didn't book a table, we had to wait...

  • L'Eté en Pente Douce

    Paris Restaurants

    We sought this place out as it had received some good reviews on VT and also cropped up in a book of Paris bistros that I have found to be reliable. I'm so glad we did as it has become a favourite of ours for lunch if we're anywhere near the 18th. It's very casual and popular with local people. Tourists (like us!) do find it but it's not overrun at...

  • Polidor

    Paris Restaurants

    TO BE AVOIDED. NO SERVICE AT ALL. First of all, when we had just sat down for 10 secs, the waitress (probably the owner) cried at my friend " no bags on the passage!" - we certainly received a very warm welcome, not. Then we found that they didn't take credit card so my friend had to go take some cash. During the 5-minute wait, the waitress (same...

  • Cafe Richelieu

    Paris Restaurants

    Oh dear. This will be cross referenced to the “avoid at all costs” rip off section. €20 for “breakfast”. A cup of coffee. A wee orange juice. 3 minuscule pastries. I should have had a bread roll too, but I guess they wanted to push the boat out with their rip-off and “forgot” it. I wasn’t sure about that until I checked their menu online later....

  • La Fermette Marbeuf 1900

    Paris Restaurants

    A few blocks down Rue Marbeuf off the Champs Elysees, you will find the restaurant La Fermette Marbeuf 1900. You will step back into time as you enter this incredible 1900 Art Nouveau interior. When reserving, ask for a table in the room with the “vitraux"—stained glass windows. Apparently this space had been turned into a Formica-clad bistro. At...

  • Man Ray

    Paris Restaurants

    This restaurant, located in an old movie theater, opened with a big bang about a decade ago. Close to the Champs Elysées, Man Ray cateeds to the in crowd. Johnny Depp, John Malkovich, Sean Penn, and Mick Hucknall (Simply Red) were partners in the business. The décor was pseudo-nouveau-Asian meets bordello deco, and everything was done on the grand...

  • La Grande Mosquée de Paris

    Paris Restaurants

    it is attached to the Grand Mosque of Paris which was built by the financial aid of the French Govt. On one corner there is a resto which is decorated on moroccan style, very inviting, But the staff is not friendly and the service is jut okay. The food was rather stingy in its portion even by parisian standards and the prices were higher than...

  • Buddha Bar

    Paris Restaurants

    We want there on November 28 - we had a nice dinner but after finishing the main course we saw a rat running over the floor. We told the waiters but they were very calm like they face this before. We were 3 people who saw the rat - more than once - it was there... The manager offered us champagne and confirmed that the v=bar did face problems...

    The second art nouveau restaurant we visited was Brasserie Julien in the 10th, we came here after seeing "How to Become a Parisien in an Hour". I had made reservations for 9:30pm as 9pm was not available, we were done with the show and had walked over by 8:30pm and they seated us early. The interior of this restaurant is stunning, the stained glass...

  • Pizza Pino

    a chain but a good one, I am more familial with the one by Montparnasse as used to work close by but there is a nice one at the champs elysées too. Great pizza and pasta dishes and a great watering hole of many locals and expats over the year My favorite location just across from shopping center across from gare montparnasse. 57 Boulevard du...
