Dinners in the evening and coffee culture in the mornings and afternoons are celebrated lavishly in Paris. In fact, there are so many cafés, bistros and restaurants in the French capital that you can quickly lose track. Here’s how to wine and dine your way through Paris like the locals – without falling into those tourist traps. Here we explore the best restaurants in Paris and some wonderful cafés. For Paris accommodation and hotels in Paris, look no further than MEININGER hotels!

Eat like the gods in France: Regional specialities

The Parisians love their bistros. How does a croque-monsieur – a French variation of the baguette sandwich with cheese and ham – in the Bar du Marche sound? Or a slice of quiche in La petite Maison Dans La Cour? This little restaurant is hidden away in a charming courtyard very close to Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral. You can also enjoy traditional dishes and fantastic wines in the restaurant Memere Paulette.

The food in Paris is renowned for its eclectic blend of numerous influences. In the IBRIK Kitchen near the Les Halles shopping centre, you’ll find sophisticated Romanian dishes.

Eclairs, tartes and macarons: The patisserie around the corner

To enjoy Paris like a local, all you have to do is stroll to the nearest bakery or patisserie, no matter which district you currently find yourself in. The French master their craft so convincingly that it’s barely possible to make the wrong choice.

But we have two recommendations nevertheless. Le Voltigeur in the Marais district has possibly the best pain au chocolat in Paris and the delightful Broken Biscuits is also worth a visit. The modern, stylish MEININGER Hotel Paris Porte de Vincennes is located very close by.
