About Us

Paris by Mouth started in 2010 with the goal of helping ourselves, and maybe also you, find delicious things to eat. We wanted to keep track of what different critics, in both French and English, were saying about the local restaurant scene. We wanted to add our own two centimes. We’ve since written hundreds of restaurant reviews and share our advice here, in our newsletter, and on Instagram.

Our expert-led food tours are the #1 Paris tour activity on TripAdvisor. You can read a lot more about them here, including pricing, details about our different routes, and rave reviews from previous clients.
