Favourite Restaurants Paris and others

We have made reservations for dining at the following restaurants in Paris:

Pottoka
Les Climate
L'Ange 20

Any thoughts? What are some of your favourite restaurants?

We ate at L’Ange20 last Christmas and really enjoyed it. I also really love Les Papilles in Paris.

The best best soup dumplings I’ve ever had we’re at Jia Jia Tang Bao in Shanghai. Love that place.

Lung King Heen for dim sum in Hong Kong
Sorbillo for Margherita pizza in Naples

Have a great time in Paris, Thin!

I haven't been to Paris since 2015. Friends liked Pottoka but found the food rather heavy.

I loved David Toutain

Have a wonderful trip. I wish I could get away to Paris for a few days.

We love l'Ange 20 and Les Climats. Our favorite is l'Arcane in Montmartre. When we started going they did not yet have a Michelin star and they prices have gone up a bit. The restaurant is run by a lovely young couple and the food is outstanding. We also like Les Papilles and l'Ami Jean.

Le Procope

Said to be the oldest cafe in Paris. Worth a visit for ambience alone.
"Legendary restaurant in the 6th arrondissement of Paris since 1686, Le Procope is a place full of history where the greatest writers & intellectuals met (Rousseau, Diderot, Verlaine…)

Reflecting its prestigious and historic setting, the Procope offers traditional cuisine through different specialties such as Coq au vin and the calf's head, braised ox cheek, the homemade millefeuille or even the Procope’s tiramisu."

I have always thought Le Procope was all about its history - not its food, which is execrable IMO. Who cares how old it is? The food sucks.

Try Philou, Les Grands Verres, Bistro Brute, Pink Mamma, and Wím au Table

But it does depend on what you want to eat - la cuisine de grandemère or something adventurous - and whether you want to sink into a banquette or have a white Frette tablecloth experience.

I went to Gaya Rive Gauche, the newly kicked off Pierre Gagné restaurant last week. It was excellent.

We have been to Les Climats twice on this trip and it did not disappoint......one of my favorites. I hope you enjoy it as much......will be eager to know what you think.

I have been several times in front of l'Ange 20 - I like the playword but it always looiked like a tourist trap for me and I didn't find the menu appealing.

Among my favorite restaurants I would recommend La pergolèse (rue pergolèse) a one star michelin, Elmer (close to notre dame de Naazareth), Marie in the 3rd, le bistrôt d'à côté (the 'schooling' restaurant of Rostang in the 17th) and le Meriggio on grands boulevards (great italian).

Among those listed here Philou was nice too.

We like Kong's. The food is good to very good, if not spectacular. But it has a great vibe and the view is fab. KONG | Bar Restaurant | Paris, France
When it comes to bistro/brasserie food, our tastes are pretty simple -- salad with warm goat cheese, a nice chicken dish, potatoes roasted in goose fat, etc. And there are places all over Paris that do that reasonably well.

Our absolute favorite go-to casual restaurant is La Terrasse, in the 16th near Pont Mirabeau: http://laterrasse-paris16.fr/
