Try some regional French fare, like a savory crepe or a burger, for a taste of authentic, homestyle cooking. You have just tasted the best comfort food ever!

The restaurants listed below not only serve tasty dishes, but also provide excellent value for money for those who enjoy dining out but wish to avoid breaking the bank while doing so.

If you’re not from France, it’s important to know that all of France’s regions share a common French identity while also developing their own distinctive cultures and cuisines. The largest country in Western Europe, France is also home to a rich tapestry of ancient cultures and breathtaking natural scenery. Brittany, in the northwest, has a Celtic culture and a climate similar to that of the British Isles, while the Savoy region (French alps) has an Alpine culture. On the other hand, the sun-drenched Provence region has a strong Mediterranean influence, and its cuisine reflects this.

Now, without further ado, I present to you the top ten most comforting dishes available in Paris.


A reasonably priced, satiating Southwestern Basque eatery. A hearty diet helps young men in southwestern France develop into muscular young men, making the region a natural epicenter for French rugby. Toulousain favorite, accompanied by potatoes, ham, sausages, beef, andcassoulet, have a listing in the menu. Basque country’s signature condiment appears on everything. You can’t go wrong at any of the three Chez Gladines in Paris.

Cheapness of Cost

On two levels, this restaurant is a lively update on the classic canteens where Parisians toasted the turn of the nineteenth century with song and drink. Though no singing is featured, the staff is known to make a big deal out of birthdays and keep the mood light with their antics. At a fraction of the cost of comparable restaurants in Paris, you can get authentic French country cuisine like Blanquette de Veau and pork sausage with lentils. The 300 available seats mean that even without a reservation, you should be seated relatively quickly. In general, the service is satisfactory, but you shouldn’t have any high expectations.

Cost: Reasonable

One Michelin star and serving delicious seafood and Alsatian (Eastern French) cuisine like sausages, French-style sauerkraut, and potatoes, Bofinger is a classic brasserie-bistro. Bofinger has been around for over a century, and despite its notoriety, you can enjoy a three-course meal there for only 33 euros, which includes an appetizer, a main course, and a dessert. The quality of the food here is excellent, and the low cost justifies it.

The cost is moderate to reasonable.

You wouldn’t know this bistro has a southern French twist from the outside, but once you step foot inside, you’ll get the joke. The food of the South of France, like that of other Mediterranean regions, is typically very healthy and light, relying heavily on fresh ingredients like olives, tomatoes, and seafood. Try the sea bass with tapenade, the risotto with scallops, or the gambas sauteed in pastis (anisette liquor). Southerly game, such as wild boar and rabbit, is particularly delicious. Some people attribute it to the animals’ penchant for eating wild thyme and other herbs.

Costs range from reasonable to moderate.

There aren’t too many places to go for Southwestern French food, but this one is a solid alternative. Cassoulet (white beans stewed with pork and duck) is just one of the hearty dishes served at Auberge des Pyrenees et Cevennes, a restaurant in the hip Canal St. Martin neighborhood. The best part about this restaurant is that the main courses are so large that you won’t even need an appetizer (the main courses range in price from about 20 to 28 euros). The second best thing is the cozy atmosphere created by the decor, which is reminiscent of a tavern in the south of France.

Costs range from reasonable to moderate.


As the name suggests, the cuisine at Les Nicois is French-Mediterranean, with an emphasis on dishes from Nice. Since it is a bodega-bar-restaurant in the style of the Provençal South, the mood is casual and friendly. Snacks (tapas) include octopus, pissaladiere (a flatbread with carmelized onions and anchovies), and pan bagnat (a deliciously loaded ‘tuna sandwich’). They also serve a wide variety of cooked dishes, including chicken, fish, and even pasta. And if you’re in the mood for a fun time, you can enjoy a free game of boules (petanque) in the basement while sipping one of their excellent cocktails.

Brasserie Flo (Floderer) is one of the few 19th-century taverns still standing in Paris, and it serves Alsatian-style brasserie (gastro pub) fare. Alsatian cuisine is as French as it gets, with a Germanic twist, despite the fact that many Anglo-Saxons mistake Germanic for German. You’ll find a wide variety of beers in Alsace, as in other northern French regions. Alsace is known for its high-quality Riesling (white wine), which goes particularly well with hearty dishes like ‘choucroutte’ (saukerkraut-based dishes that can come with a variety of things). There are five different types of choucrouttes available, some of which feature seafood; all are delicious and can be had for less than twenty euros. It’s a spacious establishment, with plenty of seating, and a charming Alsatian aesthetic.

The cost ranges from moderately low to moderately high.

The world-famous Tour d’Argent has a less expensive sibling in the form of the Rotisserie d’Argent. Roasts are their specialty, as suggested by the name; the spit-roasted chicken and homemade duck confit are both reasonably priced at 20 and 22 euros, respectively. The delicious, perfectly-prepared food more than justifies the reasonable price. Lovely, as well, are the classic French bistro touches, such as the red and white tablecloths.

Costs fall roughly between moderate and reasonable categories

Since its opening in 1880, the Lipp brasserie has been a staple of the Parisian culinary scene. The service is impeccable, and the restaurant offers a full menu in addition to tasty appetizers like sardines and Parisian ham. Everything on the menu, including the roasted chicken, lamb, and beef, is delicious. Uncomplicated, but delicious.

Cost is about average.

The central French region of Auvergne is known for its rugby tradition and volcanic mountains, earning it the nickname “the highlands of France.” The cheesy mashed potatoes in the French technique known as aligot, combined with their sausage, is insanely delicious. Also noteworthy is their petit sale (little salty), which consists essentially of lentils and bacon and will change your opinion of the former.

Cost is about average.

Hearty savory crepes are also available and make for excellent comfort food. While most crepes you’ll find outside of France will be sweet, savory crepes are more like pizza or omelets in that you can customize the fillings to your liking and are just as satisfying. As for dessert, I highly recommend the crepes!

The humble history of Cassoulet

Cassoulet is an incredible dish, and I urge anyone who hasn’t tried it to do so immediately. Consisting typically of beans, meats, and grains or bread. The history of this mouthwatering dish is shrouded in mystery. Here, however, we will discuss the course of action that appears to be the most likely. During the middle ages, the dish was most likely developed by the French. It is believed to have originated in the southwest of France. Much political and economic change has occurred here over the years. As a result, the quality of life was poor and food was scarce. Thus, the solution lies in finding ways to take pleasure in existing resources. This may not seem like a big deal now, but imagine being in a situation where food is scarce.

Cassoulet price in euros

A local market selling it for €1.2 per kilogram is selling fakes. You can prepare a large quantity of cassoulet by browning the meat, bread, and beans ahead of time and reheating them. This helps you save time and avoids issues with the dish’s texture. The one minor drawback is that you won’t be able to prepare a casserole and sit down to eat at the same time. But if you’re able to set aside the time and effort, that shouldn’t be an issue.

If you find steak to be a soothing meal, you’re in luck: France is home to some of the world’s finest cuts of beef. French beef, including the prized Charolais, Limousin, Aubrac, and Blonde d’Aquitaine breeds, is grass-fed and all-natural. The fact that’steak tartare’ is so popular among Parisians attests to its deliciousness. You can eat the steak on its own or with a little salt, but the best part of eating steak in France, in our opinion, is the assortment of tasty homemade dipping sauces.

If you’re looking for high-quality beef at a reasonable price in Paris, don’t bother with a steakhouse when there are dozens of excellent gourmet burger joints.

Last but not least, there are a few great options in Paris for vegetarians.
