The Best Restaurants in Paris, France

The StarTripper Journal presents the best places to dine in Paris, both International gourmet and French traditional cuisine.

Our Team in Paris are four young ladies living in Paris.

Paris, the cosmopolitan capital of France, the iconic capital for young lovers in the spring time, has a well-deserved reputation of being the most beautiful and romantic of all cities, brimming with historic associations and remaining vastly influential in the realms of culture, art, fashion, food and design.

Paris, la Ville Lumière and Capital of Fashion, is home to the world's finest and most luxurious fashion designers and cosmetics, such as Chanel, Dior, Yves Saint-Laurent, Guerlain, Lancôme, L’Oréal and Clarins.

Paris' monument-lined boulevards, museums, classical bistros and boutiques are enhanced by a new wave of multimedia galleries, creative wine bars and design shops. The city contains numerous iconic landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe, the Notre-Dame Cathedral, the Louvre Museum, Moulin Rouge, and Lido. The Musée d’Orsay and Musée de l’Orangerie are noted for their collections of French Impressionist art, and the Pompidou Centre Musée National d’Art Moderne has the largest collection of modern and contemporary art in Europe.

Paris is the home-town of French gourmet, the city of dedicated chefs and the best products and wines – you can choose restaurants from the bistro on the corner to the top Michelin-rated restaurants.

Bistros give you the sense of nice and friendly corners, the air of old Paris, serious chef teams, good products, serious wines, mix of the classic tune of time and love.

The top restaurants are an unforgettable haven of gastronomy, an evening when everything is about you, an evening of the outmost taste and pleasure - just put on a nice suit, a big wallet and let your taste buds be entertained.

The Startripper ladies enjoyed these restaurants:

Picture If you want the absolute top of French fine dining, you must go to restaurant Le Cinq at the Four Seasons hotel.

The restaurant is spacious and bright, decorated in shades of gold and grey – large Regency Style wood-sculpted mirrors with gold leafing – it gives its guests the sentiment of dining in a private chateau.

Chef Christian Squer defines his cuisine as being “flavors, concentrated and moving.” His menu changes according to the season and offers different options to please the most discerning palate. We choose his 9 courses “Epicurean Escape” menu: the most exacting flavors with perfect coherence with a long finish. Outstanding!

Attentive and enthusiastic staff, impeccable service, an exceptional experience.

31 Avenue George V
Picture Fouquet’s restaurant is ideally located at the corner of avenue George V and the Champs-Elysées – this legendary restaurant shelters a classic traditional Parisian brasserie décor and proudly displays its timeless bond with the Arts and Motion Pictures. The setting opens up to two sumptuous terraces, on the Champs-Elysées and George V avenues.

Fully renovated in 2017, Chef Pierre Gagnaire continues the tradition of the great classics of French traditional cuisine and adds his creative Signature to the menu, a unique creative touch.

A beautiful restaurant, excellent French cuisine, bon appétit!

99, avenue des Champs-Elysées
Picture Restaurant Le Meurice Alain Ducasse – at the original palace hotel Le Meurice in the heart of historic Paris –mosaic floor, crystal chandeliers, heavy damask curtains at the windows overlooking the Tuileries Gardens – and the magnificent space is animated by old-school but friendly service.

Restaurant le Meurice celebrates Alain Ducasse’s culinary philosophy under the mastery of executive chef Jocelyn Herland. In a reinterpretation of classic haute cuisine, dedicated to great subtlety and technical skill, exceptional ingredients remain true to their authentic flavours.

Outstanding French cuisine, a glamorous dining room, warm and skilful service – a must for gourmets.

228 rue de Rivoli
Picture Located next to the garden at the Shangri-La hotel, restaurant L'Abeille – named after the Napoleonic bee motif – offers sophisticated cuisine in an enchanting atmosphere.

Chef Christophe Moret has developed his own relaxed gastronomic style – a modernised haute-cuisine – which mixes grand ingredients and plenty of vegetables and offers connoisseurs one of the most exciting and extensive selections of wines from around the world.

Dress up to match the elegant setting overlooking the hotel's splendid gardens and enjoy the Chefs exciting seven-course dégustation menu.

In L’Agapé the gourmet cuisine respects the product and the flavours. Each dish is flavoursome, classical and elegant. The restaurant offers seasonal and exceptional products to gourmets. The Chef works subtle miracles on the dishes, textures, flavours, temperatures and spices that he mixes delicately.
