Best bars in Paris

Brasserie

“Less than hundred years ago, Giacometti used to sit at the terrace and watched people passing by. He sculpted then the Walking Man. Although Montparnasse has lost its legendary bling bling, and Kiki de Montparnasse is longtime forgotten, you should sit there, have a coffee or a plateau Fruits de Mer with a bottle of white wine. You will be delighted by the nostalgic atmosphere! Not long ago, old and rich French ladies still went there for afternoon tea and waited for handsome young men to sit at their tables... ”

“Dine on the 52nd floor of Tour Montparnasse, overlooking Paris, looking straight at the Eiffel Tower. The food is OK (good but not exceptionnal), go there for the view. Don’t miss sunset (The actual view is muuuch better than what the pictures show)”

Auvergne Restaurant

“3)Have lunch or dinner if you’re starving to the Plomb du Cantal (3, street Gaîté or street du Maine). Cross Av du Maine and take the little street of Rue du Maine on the left just beside the nice bakery go ahead you’ll find it on your right or continue for the second one in the other side of Gaité street just in face of you. You should be there early enough around 12h or 19h to find a table as they don’t take any booking.”

Café

“My favorite fish restaurant. French celebrities use to go there. It is a secret place for politicians, publishers and journalists to meet and conspire... Artists and writers hang around with their mistresses... Ask a table inside of the restaurant. Those who sit at the terrace are tourists. Au désert, ask a Mille Feuilles, you will be impressed! Their Crème Brûlée is one of the best in Paris. ”
