Visiting the City of Light soon? Here’s our guide to eating out, Parisian style…

Paris is a foodie’s paradise – with an exciting new restaurant around every corner, street food trucks galore and an endless supply of freshly baked bread, it’s almost impossible to have a bad meal.

But all that delicious food can be a bit overwhelming, and if you’re only in Paris for a short break, you’ll want to hit the best spots. So we’ve put together a little guide to some of the best restaurants in the city – as voted for by locals and tourists alike.

Foodie spots to try in Paris

Pied de Cochon
This authentic spot serves up classic French fare – think oysters, soups and lots of meat. With its laidback brasserie style and simple, tasty food, there’s no wonder it’s a Parisian institution.

Monsieur Bleu
This chic restaurant is a hot spot for the fashion pack. With delicious food and beautiful interiors, it’s Instagram heaven… but the main draw is the people watching. And if you’re dining al fresco, there’s a great view of the Eiffel Tower.

Frenchie To Go
Frenchie is the go-to restaurant for the young and hip in Paris, but we prefer its sister restaurant, French To Go. This smaller, simpler setting serves up a distinctly non-French menu, with stacked pastrami sandwiches and zingy lobster rolls. Go early to claim your spot.

Les Antiquaires
You’ll come across many bistros while in Paris, but this one is a clear favourite. Their steak tartare is a triumph and with a menu of French classics, it’s a hearty spot for your midday meal. Don’t forget the wine!

Glaces Glazed
Ok, so it’s not a restaurant… but when the sun shines in Paris, an ice cream from the Glaces Glazed truck is a must. With unusual flavours like ‘Black Sugar Sex Magic’ (chocolate, wasabi and ginger) it’s not your usual Mr Whippy, but that’s all part of the fun.

Jen is an online writer with a penchant for rose gold jewellery and oversized knitwear. She’s a stickler for grammar, loves a good book and can’t get enough of Instagram.
