You can’t go to Paris without visiting a restaurant that once you enter its doors you know you are in France. I am not talking about frogs’ legs or crêpes. I am talking about Paris restaurants with french vibes to their fingers.
We have been to Paris several times and have found places to eat that quickly became our favorite. These restaurants are all totally different, but all super French.
Places to eat in Paris with the best french vibe
Cafe Sud restaurant in Paris is a charming French restaurant with live music. The food is excellent, the wine is French (no need to say more), and the service is far from French (no need to say more either). The interior is relaxed with warm colors and chairs you can spend your whole evening.
You should ask for a table by the window, that way you can people watch too, at least during summer. Cafe Sud is a little bit pricy but you will love the atmosphere, which is a mix of cool and relaxed, yet snobby French. You should book a table in advance. The restaurant fills up pretty quickly, especially on Fridays and Saturdays.
Cafe Sud is located in 8th neighborhood in Paris, close to several famous attractions.
Oh my God! You don’t want to miss the Le Souffle restaurant. Everything they serve is made as a souffle. Well, almost everything. I had escargot for a starter, then I had a souffle with Biff Bourgogne and a souffle with asparagus. The souffle is served on a plate with a filling of your choice baked inside. However, you also get a small mug of filling on the side.
This Parisian restaurant has a style of a French bistro and the food is excellent. The souffle meal will work for lunch as well as for dinner. The prices are very reasonable for Paris and France. Le Souffle is located in the 1st neighborhood in Paris, not far from Place de la Concorde.
Canard and champagne
French know how to do it! Canard and Champagne restaurant in Paris started with only duck and champagne on its menu, a French Paradox. In recent years, they have loosened up a little and introduced biff/entrecote and wine. The restaurant has a kind of minimalistic vibe with a high ceiling, high chairs, and a high sofa. We didn’t take any pictures, unfortunately, but since this restaurant is not huge I recommend you book a table in advance.
