Great food to a great price in Paris

The beautiful French capital is buzzing with some of the world’s the best gourmet, Michelin-starred and fine dining restaurants. But the city also offers restaurants where you can eat great food without emptying your wallet.

Bouillon Chartier

7 Rue du Faubourg Montmartre, 75009 Paris (9th arrondissement)
This is a legendary restaurant – over a 100 years old – and very popular among native Parisians. Located in a former train station concourse, Bouillon Chartier offers traditional French food at unbeatable prices. Perfect for a night out with friends or family. Tables are often shared with other guests, so this may not be the most idyllic place for a romantic date… Or why not? Try!

Buillon Chartier, Paris.

13-a baker’s dozen

16 Rue des Saints-Pères, 75007 Paris (7th arrondissement)
The moment you enter the door, the owner Laurel, originally from Charleston, South Carolina, makes you feel at home when she greets you with her bubbly personality. This is a small and charming café with amazing cakes and American comfort food such as pies or bagels. The roasted pork, apple and butternut pie is to die for. Make yourself comfortable and indulge yourself between high shelves with cookbooks and the slammering kitchen right next to you.


52 Rue de Richelieu, 75001 Paris (1st arrondissement)
Verjus serves a tasting menu for 68 € (September 2016) as well as an optional cheese course and wine pairing. This is a bargain for the well-cooked food and great service you get in this cosy and intimate restaurant.


26 rue Beautreillis, 75004 Paris (4th arrondissement)
Restaurant with a laid-back attitude that serves fusion tapas like Peruvian ceviche, chicken tacos and truffled mac n’ cheese sticks. Not the cheapest tapas in Paris, but to reasonable prices because you definitley get a good meal for what you’re paying. Also has sublime cocktails that cannot be missed.
