It’s no secret Paris has good food. It’s also no secret that it’s quite easy to spend a lot of money enjoying that food. But eating in Paris doesn’t have to break the bank. The city famed for its celebrity chefs and Michelin stars can actually be an affordable food city if you know where and when to go.
Lunch, for example, is a great way to experience some of the higher-end restaurants Paris has to offer without spending your whole budget on one meal. Many Parisian bistros offer set menus of an appetizer, main course, and dessert for lunch that is less expensive than the dinner option. Outside of the fancier, name-brand restaurant options, there are traditional French spots, bakeries, and eateries serving food from around the world at an affordable price throughout the day.
Consider these eight affordable Paris restaurants as a starter guide to good, affordable eating in a city world-famous for its food.
