The Paris Restaurants with the Best Ambiance
Wondering which is the coolest restaurant in Paris? With over 16,000 options to choose from, there’s no way to narrow it down to a single top spot, but we can compile a short list of our personal picks to help you find your own favorite!
Here are a few highlights to help point you in the right direction of the trendy restaurants in Paris you’ll love:
The pretty, influencer-favorite Pink Mamma is a can’t miss for anyone who loves laid-back-but-delicious Italian fare and has a refined yet whimsical aesthetic. Up the Insta-famous staircase, the top floor dining room offers amazing views of the Paris rooftops too.
For sleek lines, art-deco inspired interiors, and Eiffel Tower views, Monsieur Bleu might be more your speed. In this posh Parisian restaurant, you’ll taste innovative French cuisine under soaring ceilings and surrounded by rich colors and textures
If you’re more into elegant Americana, make your way instead to the Saint Germain neighborhood for lunch or dinner at Ralph’s. Nestled in a beautiful courtyard behind Ralph Lauren’s flagship store, the restaurant is luxuriously decorated in the designer’s signature style and serves classic American food in Paris.
For true design lovers looking for more dramatic décor, a meal at one of Philippe Starck’s restaurants is a must. The legendary architect and interior designer’s Miss Kô and Kong are two of our favorites, each with drastically different vibes: Miss Kô immerses you in a futuristic Asian street bazaar while Kong is an upscale rooftop restaurant frequented by those in the fashion industry and featured in Sex in the City.
Be warned though — these are some of the most popular restaurants in Paris, so you may want to make reservations well in advance to avoid long lines!
