Restaurants you can not miss in Paris!
When you visit Paris, get ready for a culinary adventure. There’s something for everyone, from escargots to French fries to delectable pastries and exquisite French wines. Today, let’s focus on some of the best places to eat in this enchanting city. I personally enjoy these restaurants and cafes every time I’m in Paris, so here are some of the restaurants you can not miss in Paris!
LE CAFÉ MARLY
I highly recommend Le Café Marly as one of Paris’s best places to visit. It’s situated right beside the Louvre Museum, offering breathtaking views. Although the menu leans towards international cuisine and may be a bit expensive, it’s worth it for the overall experience. I suggest trying their avocado surprise or omelette, and don’t forget to indulge in their delectable desserts.

If you’re out shopping on Rue Saint-Honore, be sure to stop by Hotel Costes. You can grab lunch or a drink in their lovely courtyard. While it may be a bit expensive, the boudoir-themed interior is absolutely stunning, and the atmosphere is quite enjoyable. I highly recommend giving Hotel Costes a try at least once.
Hôtel Costes // 239-241 Rue Saint Honoré, 75001 Paris

If you’re looking for the most delicious and delicate macarons, you can’t go wrong with La Maison Ladurée. A trip to Paris wouldn’t be complete without a visit to this beautiful establishment. The interior design is marvellous, making it the perfect setting for a tea party that makes you feel like a princess. My personal favourite macaron flavours are pistachio, chocolate, and cherry almond, but unfortunately, they’re not always available.

Whenever I’m in Paris, I always make sure to stop by Season, my favourite breakfast and brunch spot. Their poached eggs on avocado toast are absolutely delicious! I also highly recommend their Acai Bowls and banana tarts. Just be aware that weekends can get very crowded, and you may have to wait up to an hour for a table.
I once celebrated my birthday brunch with my best friend at this restaurant, so Season has a special place in my heart. Definitely, one of the restaurants you can not miss in Paris!

If you’re in the mood for burgers, fries, or steaks, head over to Ralph’s restaurant behind the Ralph Lauren store on Boulevard Saint-Germain. The interior design is in line with Ralph Lauren’s style, featuring a delightful polo-country-club vibe. The courtyard is particularly charming, so I recommend visiting on a sunny day and enjoying the restaurant’s terrace.
Whenever you feel like you need to escape the city feeling and want a timeout, Ralph’s is the best place to be. It is a lovely experience! You will immediately feel like being in the Hamptons in the US or in Provence, in the South of France.
Ralph’s // 173 Boulevard Saint-Germain, 75006 Paris
This upscale restaurant is the ideal spot to see and be seen. It’s the perfect excuse to dress up for a fancy dinner. While both Hotel Costes and L’Avenue have similar menus, I highly recommend L’Avenue for its unique atmosphere. Although the food is equally delicious at both locations. The truffle pasta at L’Avenue is to die for!
L’Avenue // 41 Avenue Montaigne, 75008 Paris
CAFÉ DE FLORE
For an authentic Parisian experience, Café de Flore is the ideal choice. Located in Saint Germain, this classic café is perfect for a leisurely breakfast or a coffee meeting since 1887. If you’re fortunate enough to secure a table outside, make the most of it by soaking up the atmosphere and sunshine.

This restaurant is located in the 13th arrondissement in China Town, which is a bit further from the centre of Paris. However, it is definitely worth the trip as they serve the best-roasted duck in all of Europe. I make sure to visit this restaurant at least once every time I am back in Paris. Additionally, the price-performance ratio is very fair, making it one of my top recommendations. If you visit this restaurant, you must try their roasted duck noodle soup.
Impérial Choisy // 32 Avenue de Choisy, 75013 Paris
This place, famous for its appearance in Sex and the City, is often crowded but definitely worth a visit for the stunning view. I personally celebrated my birthday there twice and enjoyed the combination of dining and clubbing. The music was just suitable for my taste. Still, I would recommend going during the day to fully appreciate the beautiful restaurant and view. They look even more impressive in daylight.
