Why Visit Paris
For People Who Want To Visit Paris Someday


Eating in Paris

If you are just visting Paris for a weekend break, no doubt you will be eating out most of the time. There are plenty of options, but don't assume that you are certain to get a gastronomic delight, just because you visit a restaurant. As usual, the more touristy the restaurant, the less likely you are to get a quality meal.

Nowhere is this more true than in the area just behind St. Michel in the Latin Quarter. You will be invited in to many places by an enthusiastic person just outside the restaurant door, and they can be pretty persistent. This just goes to show how competitive the area is. The prices are not so bad, but the food is usually pretty second rate.

I've always found this to be the case in the square in the tourist haven of Place du Tertre in Montmartre as well. But at least I like the location there.
