Our top recommendations for the best restaurants in Paris, France, with pictures, reviews, and details ;

GRAVITY BAR


Gravity Bar, 44 rue des Vinaigriers, Canal Saint-Martin, Paris

 

The best restaurant for cocktails and dinner

The curving wooden interiors of this new hangout take their inspiration from surfing and skateboarding, but it’s the serious cocktails and market-driven menu that give the greater thrills. Unusual flavours are the draw here; try the Black Popeye, shaken with Chairman’s Reserve rum, amaro, bitters and absinthe. The dishes are no less imaginative, including fried whelks and duck tartare.

CAFÉ CRAFT

CAFÉ CRAFT


Café Craft, 24 rue des Vinaigriers, Canal Saint-Martin, Paris

 

The best café for a cup of coffee

Co-working is still a relatively new concept in the French capital, but this graphic, monochromatic space is where MacBook-toting freelancers start their day over espressos made with beans from Parisian roasters Lomi. Buy a cup or pay by the hour for access to Wi-Fi and a seat at the communal table.

LIBERTÉ


Liberté, 39 rue des Vinaigriers, Canal Saint-Martin, Paris

 

The best breakfast spot

Atop the marble counter of this brilliant bakery from master pastry chef Benoît Castel are delicate tarts and jewel-like fancies. Their prettiness contrasts with the raw interiors. Opt for perfect madeleines or go for full-on indulgence with Castel’s famous tarte à la crème.

THE SUNKEN CHIP


The Sunken Chip, 39 rue des Vinaigriers, Canal Saint-Martin, Paris

 

The best fish and chips

How do Parisians do fish and chips? In this trendy metro-tiled restaurant with line-caught haddock or coley from Saint-Jean-de-Luz and thick, hand-cut, double-cooked frites. If you’re not married to tradition, swap the classic for a hake burger or monkfish nuggets coated in panko breadcrumbs, along with a local craft beer.

SOL SEMILLA

The healthiest snacks

Call them hippies or early adopters, but the owners of this vegan canteen and shop have been turning out antioxidant-rich superfoods such as açai, Klamath algae and maca powder since opening in 2007. Pop into the cheery turquoise-fronted store for kale chips or raw cacao to munch on.

PICCOLI CUGINI


Piccoli Cugini, 34 rue des Vinaigriers, Canal Saint-Martin, Paris

 

The best place for an apéritif

The area’s go-to pizza joint doubles as a pre-dinner spot for a turned-out crowd with bigger plans. Join them in sipping spritzes and Italian wines while tucking into plates of burrata and Parma ham.
