The 100 best restaurants in Paris

Our regularly refreshed guide to the finest restaurants in the French capital

@ Fulgurances/ZT

The search for a good restaurant is never complete in a city like Paris. Our favourite spots of yesteryear close down, and snazzy new venues take their place; cuisines fall out of fashion, and new trends suddenly crop up. So we’ve kept our fingers on the pulse, and concocted a list of the 100 best restaurants in Paris, regularly updated for your reading (and eating) pleasure.

The selection is divided into ten categories – everything from budget to haute cuisine, Asian to French traditional – to help you hone in on the kind of food you like. Our criteria weren’t strict, but the restaurants that have made the cut all offer something beyond a merely good meal – whether it’s originality, cosiness or value for money. It’s not a definitive list by any means, so if you feel we’ve missed out some top-notch spots, let us know in the comments box below. But if you read on, you’ll find that there’s definitely enough to keep your tastebuds happy. Bon appétit!
