Renting a Paris Apartment? Try these Dining Tips


Paris vacation rentals: Whether you eat in
or dine out, a great meal awaits you.

Food is the language of love in Paris. Paris vacation rentals offer visitors the chance to delve into one of the world's premiere cities in an intimate way and discover imaginative cuisine found nowhere else. While restaurants get 5-star billing (and deservedly so), you may be surprised by the sophistication of market vendors, who serve award-winning foods on the streets of Paris. So whether you eat in your Paris apartment or treat yourself to a night out at a restaurant, you're sure to enjoy a meal you'll never forget.

Finding Food in the rue Cler

The rue Cler is an open-air marketplace that captures the essence of Paris. With fruit and vegetable stalls, flower stalls, indoor cafes and a lot of sightseeing opportunities, it's no wonder this is one of the trendiest places in the city. Locals visit to collect everything needed to prepare meals from week to week and enjoy healthy eating with fresh, organic produce; La Maison du Jambon is considered one of the best delicatessens in Paris. A wide variety of meats, pastries, and even household items are available in rue Cler, making it a true one-stop shop.

Famous Restaurants in Paris

Le Meurice, L'Astrance, Huitrerie Regis, MacĂ©o, and ZeKitchen Galerie are considered some of the most popular and renowned restaurants in both Paris and the world at large. Each is located within walking distance from many Paris apartments for rent. Most evening meals range from 50–100 Euro per person, but may be as much as 200 Euro, which is highly competitive given the return. Most Parisian meals are a decadent affair, with sumptuous cuisine and several rounds of plates presented. Lunch menus offer an excellent opportunity to sample the delights at discounted rates, and most restaurants will provide a menu on their website or outside the dining room to help you stay within budget.
