UPDATED – JUNE 7 2023
Coming to Paris? Don’t fall for the tourist traps, buy my ebook with over 40 addresses on how to enjoy Paris with the best-curated places to eat “WHERE TO EAT IN PARIS”
If by the iron lady, you don’t have to go father than looking up! But book in advance to get a view of Paris from atop the infamous Eiffel Tower, with a decent menu.
Located in: Eiffel Tower
Address: Avenue Gustave Eiffel, 75007 Paris
Super trendy with a colorful and vegetal decor you’ll feel like you’ve hit upon a local neo-brasserie. Great for seafood lovers and you can also brunch here. Over on the Esplanade des Invalides in Paris.
Address: 18 Rue Fabert, 75007 Paris
L’Abeille (permanently closed)
Fancy Two Michelin starred french food inside the stunning Shangri La Hotel. Reservation needed.
Address: 10 Avenue d’Iéna, 75116 Paris
So the concept is simple and stripped down from the well known French chef Christian Constant; food served in a Frenchy-styled cocotte on high stools. Nice small restaurants ( the portions are a bit on the small side too) but the food is good!
Address: 135 Rue Saint-Dominique, 75007 Paris
A nice view of the Eiffel tower, cocktails are good and decent from a friendly (English speaking staff) too inside the Palais Tokyo.
Address: 20 Avenue de New York, 75116 Paris
Chez L’Ami Jean
A bit on the pricey side – but if you want a real “authentic” French meal that won’t let you down, around a mix of people. Go here!
Address: 27 Rue Malar, 75007 Paris
Tomy + Co
One of the best places to eat in Paris hands down. I discovered chef Tomy Gousset at the Taste of Paris food show and it was simply a divine start of a food love affair.
Address: 22 Rue Surcouf, 75007 Paris
Don’t judge the book by the cover, step inside the typical cafe to find a mix of “regular” food you’d find in Paris, but it’s dependable (steak, salmon tartare, burgers, salads..etc) and the decor is cosy.
Address: 73 Avenue de Suffren, 75007 Paris
O Coffee Shop
One of the best places to get great coffee so close to the tower, and the kitchen has fresh homemade goodness like soups in the winter and tartes in the summer.
Address: 23 Rue de Lourmel, 75015 Paris
A new addition to the Paris coffee scene, but the best thing is you can grab food to go as a picnic too!
Address: 22 Avenue de Tourville, 75007 Paris
11 Café de l’Homme
the most stunning view of the Eiffel Tower from their splendid terrace. the food is 10/10 but be warned you have to pay 50 eu extra for just the terrace experience – book here
