Restaurants, cafes and dining
Of course eating and dining are the most visible and
one of the most important reasons to come to the street,
and while buying food from shops
is important and why many locals come here, sitting down
and eating is just as attractive.
Unless you have a local resident to guide you it is
best to stroll around first and see which types of
establishment meets your style. There are of
course plenty of traditional French eateries but today
in the multicultural Paris you will not be surprised to
find Chinese, American, Italian and more choices.
While many restaurants are
historic and have stories that go back hundreds of
years, others are modern and serve food in a style and
speed that fits the speed of 21st century life.
Eat in little family restaurants that serve only a set
menu, try fast food French style from Quick burger or
eat an authentic Italian country style pizza from a
small local chain. Everything is possible here on
L'Escargot Montorgueil - For more than 200
years this traditional restaurant has been serving the
French snails in a variety of ways, and with that of
course a range of other dishes. Frequently mostly
by locals but also welcoming to the interested visitor,
there is a menu in English, you will find exceptional
food and wine choices here. Don't miss out on the
famed 12 Burgundy Snails in Three Flavors! Located at
38 Rue Montorgueil it is easily recognized by the giant
snail above the doorway!
Au Rocher de Cancale
- One of the oldest restaurants in Paris this 1804
establishment focused on Oysters when it first opened
and quickly became a fashionable place to eat.
Originally on the other side of the road it has moved
locations a few times but today is at number 78.
Excellent for a late dinner, it offers a range of dishes
in a friendly environment. Try eating in the
upstairs dining room for a candle list experience.
Try the grilled camembert with honey and herbs, the
salmon tarta or even a cheeseburger done
with traditional French flair!
