what to eat paris

General Tips

Like any well visited city, it’s best to avoid restaurants near main stations or tourist attractions. They’re generally more expensive and hardly even close to quality. You can eat inexpensive meals a short distance from where all the action is taking place, without feeling ripped off.  Follow these tips so you know what to eat in Paris, and where. We want you to have an amazing culinary experience in the French capital, after all!


There’s a patisserie on literally every corner of the city. Just let your nose guide you towards the sweet smells! Parisian treats are inexpensive, including brioche, bread, croissant, and Pain au Chocolat; a croissant with dark chocolate in the middle. Try out Du Pain et des Idees in the 10th arrondissement.

Ethnic Foods

You can eat cuisine from all over the world in Paris. France has a strong Arabic influence which has extended to the cuisines, in turn offering one of the best food bargains. Dining at Moroccan or Lebanese restaurants is highly recommended. For something truly Franco-Algerian, try out Zerda Cafe on rue René Boulanger.


A very worthy mention on our Paris Food Guide. This is a great and cheap option for vegetarians! You can have something savoury, or something sweet. Whatever you prefer! We recommend La Drougerie du Maris for a delicious treat!

French Brasseries & Bistros

Since you’re in France, you might as well enjoy a traditional French meal! Café de L’Industrie is a great spot to taste test some of the best dishes in the French kitchen! For another budget friendly option with a romantic atmosphere, you can try Bistrot Victoires.

Picnic with market foods

Paris has exceptional food markets, and you should definitely take advantage of them! The Marché Beauvau – Marché d’Aligre is open 6 days a week and offers tons of local, fresh produce! Fill up your basket and have a picnic in one of the many parks in Paris! For Sunday markets, we recommend checking the ones out on the Rue des Pyrénées. This is one of our fav mentions on our Paris Food Guide.

Set Menu restaurants

You should always be on the look out for set menus. They’re usually posted outside restaurants, and offer three course meals for a set price. The variety of dishes is limited but you’ll save cash and enjoy a good meal. We recommend Canard Street for a budget friendly option if you’re curious about set menu restaurants!
