Paris Restaurants

This selection focuses on restaurants offering a sit-down experience where you can linger and take your time. You might also be interested in our selection of fast casual options for a quick bite, or wine bars where you can perch on a stool and share some small plates. We are in the process of updating our guide in 2021 to better reflect what’s changed since restaurants reopened for indoor dining on June 9. In the meantime, it’s a good idea to call or visit a restaurant’s website before going, to be sure their hours haven’t changed.

  1. OMG…I just discovered your site by searching the Pass Sanitaire Vs. the CDC card.
    I am a French citizen living in NYC and I am always looking for places to eat while in Paris (I am from Brittany).
    Thanks for doing a great job.
