Where to eat in Paris?


Sometimes it is hard to find a good place to eat when you are traveling. Specially when it comes to Paris, it is very difficult as there are so many places I want to go but the time and the budget are limited. Below you will see my personal list of the places where I have been and eaten…. and liked! Also at the end I added a list of the restaurants and shops I like to go next time I am in Paris. There are many bakeries listed there as it will be a bakery-trip in 2013!! If this list can help you any, I am happy. But food is a matter of personal preference, and some restaurants in Paris have only a set meny for lunch or dinner and you might not like the particular meny on the day you are there. I listed these places because I liked and it met my budget and I want to go back there again. But I recommend you to check on Internet for yourself, too before you visit there. I will put a link for each restaurant together with their address and access information. 🙂   xx Rie

time at this casual place and had very good oysters.

4. VIN & MAREE – poisson
165, rue Saint Honoré 75001 Paris

seafood but they have very good Moule too.

Lunch meny
5. Cafe Constant (Good lunch meny!!)
139, rue Saint-Dominique 75007 Paris

better than many restaurants.

owner Christian Constant’s passion for food!!

the pasta here so much.

8. Laduree 

There are several shops. Please check their web site.
