The Food Lover's Guide to Paris: The Best Restaurants, Bistros, Cafés, Markets, Bakeries, and More Reviews

  • Sandy Hall

    I recieved this as an early read via netgalley. This book made me BEG my husband to consider a trip to Paris! I wish I had access to such a detailed guide with personalized suggestions and glorious descriptions when I had moved to Germany many, many years ago. It covers so much more than just food, it explains cultural differences and allows the vacationer to have a truly well rounded idea of what they can expect.

  • Guinevere

    Well, definitely not a book to read when you are hungry...or maybe, why not, the perfect book to read when you're hungry! I received this book via a Goodreads giveaway.

    This is a really well-organized guide, by type of food purveyor and then broken down into neighborhoods, with price info, etc. Throughout the book there are many sidebars of info that can be useful while actually in Paris, and plenty that's fun to know even if a trip to Paris isn't in the works.

    Sure, I wish there were

    Sure, I wish there were more recipes - tho I appreciate those that were included, and in particular am looking forward to making the asparagus with whipped ricotta (I am a cheese-maker and asparagus is in season here now!) and the almond cake. Some of the recipes were a little disappointing - as in, a certain type of cheese on a certain type of bread...but looking at it as an example is maybe better than thinking of that as a recipe.

    We'll be in Paris at some point in the fall of 2015, so I will definitely be checking some of these places out!

  • Erik

    Pure candy! Delightful descriptions by Arrondissement. And recipes too. Nice attention to the sorts of dishes that are distinctive of French cooking: game, truffles, huitres, duck and such. Helpful glossary in back. Update: I have now been to several of her suggestions and they all worked out well. Just my own 2 centimes: I wouldn't be too picky about getting oysters from those tiny places with 5 or 6 tables, since Paris is covered in good oyster bars.

    Reviews restaurants, cafes, chocolate shops, bakeries, pastry shops and markets. There is also a wonderful food glossary and some nice photos. Her purpose is to guide you to good food rather than bargains so many are priced on the high side, still an amazing amount of info and the glossary would be very valuable even to someone who has French. Her descriptions of the dishes are mouth-watering and she also includes a nice selection of recipes (which appear in the text near the review of the place

  • Susie

    A very thorough and delightful guide to dining in Paris. I love how it is divided by type of establishment. If you want to find a chocolate shop in the 8th Arr., just jump to the chocolate shops section. Love also all the practical information included with each review so you know if you're going to break the bank or not or where to dine on a Sunday. Don't read this while hungry.

  • Christy Cowell

    What a great travel resource as well as fun reading from home! She describes restaurants so well, using specific and evocative language. Great resource also for food shopping, kitchenware stores, etc. I like the fact that there are regular updates to the book's app and Kindle version, so you're notified when key details like contact info for a restaurant have changed.

  • Mellie Antoinette

    Patricia Wells is more than just a name to know on the French food scene. She's an expert. My favorite thing about this book is that I knew she had dined at every establishment recommended in the book. Organized by arrondissement, I lovingly tagged my favorites and I'm ready to eat! Thanks Patricia!

  • Joan Stroh

    Brought with me when I went on my trip to France. In addition to reviews of the different restaurants and where to eat, I wish I had glanced at the section of the differences in food names before lunch one day. Andouille Sausage in the States is a food I enjoy. In Paris, it's tripe .....which I really didn't. I looked it up after getting back to the Air BNB and was happy to know that I tried something new and I hadn't lost my mind.

  • Tig

    Excellent resource, even if the reader has never been to Paris and has no plans to travel there anytime in the near future. The recipes that I tried from the book were delicious, the behind-the-scenes stories about the various eateries and their owners were very interesting. I liked that there was a soupçon of history added to the mix. I am adding this book to my Wish List of books that I would like to own a copy of.

  • Delilah

    Great reference book for me, as I am traveling to Paris in a few weeks and LOVE to eat!!! The author has great tips, do's and don'ts, and lists her favorites. Highly recommend!
