Brasserie
$$$
“My Great grand-father founded this restaurant. It is the biggest in terms of size and famous for the paintings on the walls. This is where Jean-Paul Sartre, Picasso, Édith Piaf, Joséphine Baker, Man Ray, and Ernest Hemingway used to go.”

Café
$$$$
“My favorite fish restaurant. French celebrities use to go there. It is a secret place for politicians, publishers and journalists to meet and conspire... Artists and writers hang around with their mistresses... Ask a table inside of the restaurant. Those who sit at the terrace are tourists. Au désert, ask a Mille Feuilles, you will be impressed! Their Crème Brûlée is one of the best in Paris. ”

“Bar mythique, jazz et cocktails, voyage dans les 30th's. A trip back to the 30th's, cocktails and jazz. Simone de Beauvoir and Jean Paum Sartre use to go there...”

Steakhouse
$$
“One of the most popular steakhouse in France, well-known for it's secret mustard sauce. Lots of people so you might have to queue a little bit before being seated. The menu is very easy: they only serve you a salad, followed by an entrecôte with fries and it's secret sauce. The desserts are good (I recommend the profiterole). As for the prices, a little expensive - approximately 27-37 EUR per person. No reservation is possible (because the restaurant is a success lol).”

Restaurant
$$
“Just a minute in this relaxing bar in the chic 6th Arrondissement will transport you to La Habana, surrounded by cheerful people laughing, dancing, and drinking cocktails. Then it’s time to visit their quiet haven dedicated to puro lovers—enjoy your cigar with a mature rum on a large leather sofa under a portrait of Che. If you’d like something to eat while you’re smoking, ask for the menu and order at the bar before entering the cigar lounge.”
