Tight on euros in Paris? Use these dining tips to save

Eat at the counter. In many cafés and bars in Paris it’s less expensive to eat or drink standing up at the counter than it is to sit at a table. Opt for the fixed-price menu. If there is one, the fixed-price menu for lunch or dinner is definitely going to be less expensive than ordering à la carte. If it’s not offered, feel free to ask for one. Note that on some fixed-price menus certain options come with a supplemental charge. See our Fodor’s Choice Paris restaurant picks.
