Where to eat in Paris

It is close to impossible to visit all of Paris’ restaurants, but you have to start somewhere. Here’s a small list of where-to-eat-in-Paris with restaurants you should definitely try out for your next visit in Paris. Whereas you might find the typical, famous restaurants including dinner at the Le Train Bleu or an afternoon tea at the Ritz, I focused on creating a list of alternatives, yet still French, set inside a great atmosphere.





At the Brasserie du Lutetia you will be welcomed inside a shining and bright interior

1. Brasserie du Lutetia

The best way to start your morning is by finding a cute Parisian café where you can enjoy your favourite type of breakfast while distantly staring out of the window watching people passing by. At Brasserie du Lutetia you will be welcomed inside a shining and bright interior, arranged with style and class. The Brasserie Lutetia is located inside the Hotel Lutetia which was originally built in 1910 and renovated a century later to restore its original 1910 layout with an Art Deco style. With a great service, exquisitely delicious food and an atmosphere that just feels right, that’s when the restaurant needs to be mentioned. Their breakfast menu offers something for everyone, locals and tourists alike. You will find typical French breakfast option with pastries, something for the healthier ones with fruit and avocado and then there is my favourite, the Bircher Muesli.





Le Potager de Charlotte - an exclusively plant-based cuisine

2. Le Potager de Charlotte

When I told my friend in Paris, that I am a vegetarian, I could hear a little relief at the other end of our chatline; she is a vegan and being a vegetarian myself I didn’t mind at all exploring something out of the ordinary. This led us to “Le Potager de Charlotte”, an exclusively plant-based cuisine with locations both in the 9th and 17th arrondissement. While witnessing plant-based options becoming more frequent these days, this restaurant stands out of the ordinary while bringing a gourmet approach to the plant-based cuisine. Vegan or not, their dishes lack absolutely nothing; the dishes are beautifully arranged and delicious to a mouthwatering point which is exactly the purpose of this restaurant; showing the world that the vegan cuisine can be absolutely tasty. Bravo, to the owners, Adrien and David, for creating something truly special.





Hebe - located in the 5th arrondissement and simultaneously the historical heart of Paris

3. Hebe

Chasing new restaurants in Paris turned into such a fun thing for me to do and was even more of a fun challenge when I had to find something with vegan options for my friend. One of those restaurants is Hebe, located in the 5th arrondissement and simultaneously the historical heart of Paris with close proximity to both Notre Dame and Saint Chapelle. The settings inside this restaurant are established in a minimal elegant style, yet still being nothing less but cozy with warm colours and dimmed lighting. After arriving rather early compared to French dinner hours, the restaurant got full quickly and with a very limited number of tables I was happy having made a reservation. The menu offers simple, yet oh so tasty dishes with options for both vegetarians and vegans alike.





If you are looking for an authentic Parisian restaurant, you have come to the very right place at Les Antiquaires

4. Les Antiquaires

If you are looking for an authentic Parisian restaurant, you have come to the very right place at “Les Antiquaires”. Located on the left side of the river, just across the Louvre and a stone throw away from the Musée d’Orsay, you will find this gem of a French bistro. This establishment is an ideal spot when in need for a break after a demanding day as a tourist or local alike. The cozy interior consists of upholstered leather benches, craft furniture and an impressive, solid wooden bar kept in dark brown colours which merely emphasize on the restaurants’ authenticity. The menu offers a diverse selection of dishes at reasonable prices, including something French and international. If you at that point haven’t tried a Crème Brûlée yet or simply can’t get enough of it, at Les Antiquaires you will definitely find this French delicacy on the menu.
