1. Guy Savoy

This contemporary restaurant in the heart of Paris is barely a stone throw away from the world famous Arc de Triomphe. Decorated with dark wood and leather throughout, this restaurant’s sleek design perfectly accentuates its French seasonal and innovative cuisine. Guy Savoy carries three Michelin stars making it one of the finest restaurants in Paris. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have often been spotted there.

Insider tip: You must try the artichoke and black truffle soup, but their desserts are also beautiful works of art. I would also suggest that you book online for a better deal on your meal.

2. Le Grand Véfour

This restaurant provides a taste of history residing in an eighteenth century building that overlooks the Palais Royale. The building has tastefully retained its original design having housed political and literary debates for several decades. The restaurant now proudly provides fantastic food and wine of a two Michelin star standard as the price does reflect. Like his restaurant Guy Martin, the chef, mixes the more classical tastes of food with more modern interpretations.

Insider tip: Each table is named after a famous historical character, you may even get Napoleon’s table!

Here guests are able to both eat at a restaurant and stay in one of the finest hotels in Paris.

The restaurant focuses on classical French cooking, but with interesting twists.

Insider tip: Interesting twists include the roasted Breton lobster, or the black risotto with thai basil.

5. Le Jules Verne

This rather eye catching restaurant could not provide better views as it is situated within the tallest and most iconic building in Paris, the Eiffel Tower. This French restaurant is simple in design so as to take advantage of its position. Proud of its tasting menu, it promises to provide excellent, contemporary food in generous portions. Dress is quite smart so be prepared to stand out from other visiting tourists.

Insider tip: Book well in advance for hopes of having dinner and take care as the desserts are filling.
