Where to Eat in Paris, France – The Restaurant Guide

I think everyone will agree that one of the best things about visiting Paris is the food! That said, it can be super overwhelming trying to decide where to go to have that perfect meal you’ll be talking about for years. I think we’ve compiled a list of restaurants below that will satisfy every budget and every style of diner. Truth be told, I’ve been working on this where to eat in Paris post for a year! I’ve been busy asking friends, family, and other bloggers what their favorite restaurants are. I’ve finally compiled what I think are the best restaurants to visit on a trip to Paris (full disclosure – I haven’t been to them all, but they all are high on my list of places to try or to re-visit).

My advice is to bookmark this page and save it as a reference for your next trip to Paris!
