Juveniles Metro Palais Royal- Louvre / Pyramides/ Opera

My favourite French place and my “safe place” for food when I am in need of an uplighting meal- which I was a lot during my pregnancy! French-scottish family restaurant. Everything is good but the chefs strong suit is the main dish. I have been there at least 10 times and every time I was happy and surprised of how a classic dish can be presented with a new twist without going crazy fusion. Mains are always a yes and for dessert the hot crumble with caramel whipped cream is also mouth watering. Lunch set menu: main + wine + coffee for 16,50€ or 20-28€ main dish , starters and dessert 7-11€. For wines talke to Margaux. Make a reservation if you wanna be sure to get a table! And don´t be scared of dogs if you are planning on lunch or dinner here.

L’ Epi d`Or Metro Louvre-Rivoli

Oh what a steak! Great for a romantic dinner and a satisfying dinning experience with kind service, cosy interior including candles on the table. Count about 25 for a main dish, thus 40-50 per person with drinks and dessert.

Bouche B  Metro Hotel de Ville

French cuisine trying to be not too heavy in a Berlin style stetting, 35€ the set menu. Every time I had dinner there I left happy. It´s famous for brunch, but I never made it…

L’ Estimet  Metro Ménilmontant

French countryside feeling thanks to the decorations, great food. My favourite was poached egg in Fois gras soup.  Nice place for a date. 70-80 € for 2 including wine.

Bistro Beaubourg 25 Rue Quincampoix / Metro Rambuteau / Hotel de Ville

Classic French bistro – think steak tartar, lamp chops and so on with fries, starters like leek in vinaigrette , hareng or eggs with mayonnaise and homemade mouse au chocolate and tarte tartin (upside down apple pie). Can it get any more traditional? Keeping the pricing fair and down in an otherwise expensive tourist area. Ok with children.

Cafe Truc – Cuisine de bonne femme 8 Rue Froment / Metro Breguet Sabin

Think your French grandmother is cooking. Traditional family cooking, very good, nice service and decoration. Great cheese and ham selection. 25-35€ per person.

Les Niçois  Metro St Ambroise

Sitting outside in the sun for lunch having South-French lunch and a perfect coffee! What more to ask for? Petanque in the basement. 14 Euro 2 courses for lunch. Sunday evenings: BBQ

Le Pas Sage Metro Etienne Marcel

French cuisine, surprising presentation , fresh good products. Menu du degustation 55 Euro or starter 10-15€, main 22-29€ and dessert 9 -11€

Le Comptoir de la Gastronomie  Metro Etienne Marcel

A French classic in the heart of Paris, I myself find it a bit pricy but fair enough for the corner. Solid french cooking. 8-25 Euro a dish. Think fois gras ravioli and duck breast dishes…
