Paris is certainly one of the most beautiful cities in the world, and from the culture to the spectacular monuments, millions of tourists flock here every year. One of the best things about the French capital is the food, and Paris is home to a variety of fantastic restaurants and bars. Let’s take a look at some of the top delicious restaurants in this great city!
Delicious Paris Restaurants, France
Ze Kitchen Galerie
Surrounded by art galleries, and styled like them too, Ze Kitchen Galerie is one of the most popular restaurants in Paris. Situated on a quiet street in Saint Germain des Pres, this amazing restaurant offers vast open dining spaces combined with contemporary décor. Furnished with steel tables, oak floors and stunning art, Ze Kitchen Galerie is a dining experience like no other.
When it comes to the cooking, the head chef William Ledeuil uses a variety of fresh and traditional ingredients and recipes that continue to fascinate even the most respected food critics. Using imaginative cooking techniques based on Asian cuisine, the menu at Ze Kitchen Galerie is a joy to behold, and if you’re lucky enough to get a table here, make sure you sample the wine list too. The average price for a meal is around sixty Euros.
Jean-Francois Piege, head chef at Thoumieux, spend two years redesigning and invigorating this restaurant to bring it on par with some of the best restaurants in Paris, and thankfully he has succeeded! Out went the big, fat resident cat, and in came a selection of the most creative trainee chefs France had to offer. Next, Piege redesigned the menu to offer exciting and dynamic dishes, and reflected the tone of the restaurant through taste and experience.
Thoumieux has a lot of buzz for a classy restaurant, and that’s mainly because Piege has turned the traditional eating experience on its head. He believe that people are looking to evolve from the standard three course meal, and instead want individual dishes based on mood and feeling – and this is exactly what he has given his customers! If you’re thinking about travelling to France and want to book at table at Thoumieux, make sure you visit http://www.cheapflights.co.uk/flights/Paris/ to get the best deals.
The head chef of this restaurant, Adeline Grattard, spent years training with Pascal Barbot, one of Frances finest cooks. As one of the very few and rare female chefs in Paris, Grattard has quietly been making a solid name for herself as one of the city’s master chefs, and combined with a stint in Hong Kong, she’s rapidly gaining the recognition she deserves.
Yam’Tcha offers some of the best Asian cuisine in Paris, and Grattard continues to educate the trainee chefs here in the traditional cooking styles of the continent. Instead of sampling the wine list, guests are offered a selection of teas, curated by Grattard’s husband Chiwah. Not only is Yam’Tcha a small and charming restaurant, but it also offers a homely décor and delightful service too. With the average meal ranging from forty to sixty euros, a night in Yam’Tcha is certainly worth the wait.

Sounds good, Dana. Hope you get to go to some of these restaurants when you’re in Paris.
Great post, very informative. I remember my first time in Paris. I was visiting all local cafes and having plain croissants with huge mugs of latte every morning for my breakfast. I miss it a lot. France has the best restaurants in Europe. Can’t wait to get back there.

Something about their food, right? Sounds like you’ve enjoyed your French breakfast very much :)
We’re off to Paris next week and have already booked Yam’Tcha. I’ve been wanting to try it for a while. What do you recommend…is there a dish I can’t miss?

It’s great you got a reservation, Jenny. I remember something with Mozambique shrimp, which was really good. See if it’s still there when you go :)
What a wonderful list! When I was in Paris last in 2008, I was on quite the budget, so most of my meals consisted of Nutella crepes from the street vendors or baguettes from the bakery;-) Will definitely have to try some of these next time I return!

Nutella crepes may not be high end but still it’s delicious, isn’t it? :) You must try as many cuisines as possible when in France.
