Where to eat.
The French cultural connection to food, market fresh produce, and their commitment to beauty, should be the trifecta guaranteeing nothing but great meals in France. Mais malheureusement this is not the case. There are a lot of disappointing restaurants and meals to be had in France.
Donc, here are some of the restaurants where we have shared a meal, had a drink or a coffee, and would (or have) visit(ed) again. Most, are in France, many in Paris, and others from our travels out and about.
Please comment with your own favorite finds. I’m always looking for a good meal!

There are a lot of tourist traps like in any big city, but try http://www.lefooding.fr/. I like their recommendations and find them quite correct (compared to many other websites…) Alternatively, check out my blog for some simple but honest cooking in Paris 🙂
Yes. Just found about lafooding a couple of months ago. I definitely will head to your blog the next time I am looking for a good resto. Thanks!
I used to read Tripadvisor a lot, but I was so disappointed so many times that I stopped. And one year ago, they did not even publish my (negative, yes) hotel review, so I gave up.
This said, let me know what you think of Le Fooding. To me it has been the most “correct”, accurate source of reviews. Been disappointed only once (the Afghan restaurant in Montmartre -don’t go).
Not a huge fan of Tripadvisor. They give a lot of high marks for very average restos. Thanks for the tip on the Afghan resto…would like to taste Afghan food though.
Been several times at Kootchi in the 5th and I have nice memories, but it was ten years ago… maybe I should return.
