Have you ever wished to taste a traditional French cuisine meal while visiting Paris with your one and only, but never knew what restaurant you should go? That’s not a problem anymore, because here are the Best 5 Restaurants in Paris, particularly specialized in its typical French cuisine.
1. Bisro Volnay
Close both to the beautiful Opera Garnier and the historic building of Madeleine, lies the Bistro Volnay, a restaurant that gained the interest of not only tourists, but also a lot of parisiennes. Owned by Delphine Alcover and Magali Marian, this art-deco style restaurant has some famous dishes that are known as a fusion between the traditional French cuisine and the modern ambition of today’s flavors. Try the traditional rustic pie with pheasant and foie gras, which is covered in a golden and translucid crunchy pastry and you’ll never regret sampling.
Price range: $70-100$ per couple
Bistro Volnay – 8 Rue Volney, 75002 Paris, France
2. La Pulpéria
La Pulpéria is a small, busy and extremely cozy restaurant that serves one of the best French cuisine dishes in France’s capital city. The high quality food and superb presentation is truly remarkable, and the Argentinean chef Fernando Di Tomaso will not let you down. The signature dishes are all about octopus and steaks, so they are not recommended for vegetarians. Undoubtedly, one of the must-go restaurants in Paris, if you’re looking for something not that luxurious, but with some refined and gourmet touches.

Price range: $80 – $130 per couple
3. Le Coq Rico
On the heart of Montmartre lives one of the greatest restaurants in Paris, especially for those who want an environment that is relaxed and a bit relaxed and bit-luxurious. Operated by star chef Antoine Westermann, Le Coq Rico has clearly one of the best (if not even the best, to be honest) roasted chickens in Europe, which does full justice to the restaurant’s name (Le Coq Rico means “The Fine Rooster” in English). However, it’s not all about the chicken itself. A beautiful boiled egg with truffles is a famous starter around here, which deserves to be accompanied by a refreshing glass of wine.
98 Rue Lepic, 75018 Paris, France
Price Range: $70 – $120 per couple
Epicure, a three Michellin star restaurant is located in the famous Hotel Le Bristol. Famous for its world class food and romantic environment, it is the perfect meal experience for two, especially if you’re visiting Paris, one of the most beautiful cities on Earth. Run by Chef Eric Frechon, this spectacular restaurant serves some incredible contemporary French cuisine dishes, but on top of them all resides the Stuffed Macaroni with black truffle, artichoke and duck foie gras, gratinated with mature Parmesan cheese. A “must-eat” if you ever wated to go to Epicure.
