Our 7 Favorite Affordable Restaurants in Paris

La Becane A Gaston

La Becane A Gaston won the 2018 Trip Advisor Certificate of excellence and is ranked in the top 50 restaurants in Paris. We recommend trying this restaurant for its familial ambiance (it is owned by 2 sisters!) and its fresh, local dishes. Expect to spend between 15 and 30 euros for a delicious pasta, meat, or seafood dish. To avoid disappointment, be sure to book your table in advance. It’ll be worth it, trust us!

Grenouilles Paris

If you’re looking for the best sandwich in Paris, we highly recommend Grenouilles. They use exclusively French and fresh products, like raclette and ham, and serve granita slushies, wine, and ciders. Seating is minimal and service is very casual, making this the perfect place to stop during your trip to Montmartre’s Basilique du Sacré-Coeur. If you visit Paris during the warmer months, we recommend taking your food to go and sitting on the steps outside the church!

Les Crepes de Louis-Marie

No list of the best affordable restaurants in Paris is complete without a creperie…That’s why we have included this incredible option, located in the 5e arrondissement between the National Museum of Natural History and the Jardin du Luxembourg. You can sit inside or outside and enjoy a galette priced between 8 and 9 euros or a sweet crepe priced between 4 and 7 euros. They are open from Monday to Friday from 12:00 to 15:00 and from 19:00 to 23:00. They offer gluten free crepes, student deals, and a frequently changing menu. We especially recommend trying out this creperie if you are travelling with your family and want to avoid the mess of chocolate dripping down your little one’s shirt as he tries to eat his crepe to go!

Bistrot des Victoires

This authentic French bistro is located just minutes away from the Palais Royal and Louvre Museum. You should expect to spend about 10 to 15 euros for a dish and drink — We recommend trying the French onion soup, the duck confit, and the crème brûlée. They are open from 8 to 23:30 on weekdays and 10 to 23:30 on Saturdays and Sundays.

Bal de la Marine

Come to Bal de la Marine to enjoy a seafood lunch with the perfect view of the Seine and Eiffel Tower. We recommend trying the oysters and the mussels and lingering with a glass of wine while you enjoy the live band. If dining in the Eiffel Tower is out of your budget, this is a great, nearby alternative and one of the best affordable restaurants in Paris.

Le Vaudésir

Le Vaudésir is located in the 14e arrondissement at 14 rue Dareau. It won the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence 2017-2018, and we recommend it for locals and tourists alike. Expect to spend between 5 and 20 euros for simple, traditional, and fresh French cuisine. It is a hidden gem with amazing food and service and a welcoming atmosphere and owner. There is no menu online, as the available dishes change daily. You may get to try their quiche of the day, stewed pork, or chocolate mousse. We are confident that you will enjoy this local, family restaurant and encourage you to venture out of the traditional tourist areas to give it a try. Note that they are not open on Mondays for dinner (only breakfast and lunch) and that reservations should be made before noon.
