No Paris restaurant reservations required.

Jump to last reply

During the past 5 weeks here, I have nopt needed one reservation for a restaurant for either lunch or dinner. Yes I may have had to wait an hour, but I used to sometimes wait that long with reservations.

This 12th trip here, I vowed never to have to be a "slave" of a reservation time, I dont know what I am going to do tommorrow, so how can I reserve days/weeks/or months in advance.

I have to admit that I did not try this with 3Star restaurants, but with the ones I liked:
Le Comptoir
Crystal Room (Highly recommended for the room!)
Atelier de Joel Rubacon
Bastide Odeon
Jaques Cagnes
etc, etc....

I know that many people feel safer with reservations, but for those that are worried about not having any, it is not the end of the world. Try the restaurant early or late, and if you are 2-3 they probably will let you in, if they like you. Speaking French helps too.

My life is complicated enough at home, don't need complications on a vacation.
