    #`1 Pamela Popo 15 Rue Francois Miron Is the best restaurant I have ever been at in Paris - you will be the only tourists there! In a little house on a odd side street with amazing food. Dont miss the Praline en Coque de chocolat - it is over the top!

    #2 Kong 1 Pont Neuf Hip & Cool - great design with great Asian French Fusion food. Make sure to make reservations for the upstairs dining in the terrarium for a romantic dinner "under the stars". The top floor is a glass terrarium overlooking the river - really special.

    #3 Alcazar 62 ru Mazarine - Great food - great atmosphere medium price.

    There are some nice spots on your list & some touristy ones. Check out the web sites & menus on these 3 - I think you will be very happy!

    Remember you can do lunch & brunch at many places.

      yes it is!!! It was about $100 + a person. I thought it was worth it for the amazing atmosphere & food -- but Pamela Popo & Alcazar are more reasonable and equally as good food. We brought friends to Kong from Versailles and they thought it was the best place they had ever been in Paris. We thought that was pretty funny since they should have been the experts :) Did you check out the menu @ Pamela Popo? It is short - simple & very French. The chicken was amazing & the fish was equally as good. · (2 likelikes)

    parisbymouth.com is a great foodie site for discovering new restaurants. For simple good and not too expensive Parisian fare I'd recommend L'Industrie - Restaurant . It's always bustling.

      many times! It's simple, they update their menu seasonally, and I like the interior (note there are two across the street from one another and I'd recommend the location that has the old library feel) · (0 likelikes)

    I would try Chez Julien . It's not cheap by any means but you literally cannot get more romantic and the food is excellent.

    Afterwards I would check out Cafe Pont Louis Philippe almost across the street for a nightcap. The food there goes up and down but the atmosphere is fabulous and it's as picturesque as you can get.

    I would also add La Fontaine de Mars . Stunning place with great food. La Méditerranée is absolutely gorgeous.


    By the way, I agree that you should see Lipp and Deux Magots (and Café de Flore across the street), but not necessarily for a romantic dinner. All three are legendary but very, very crowded and noisy. The food is OK but not incredible at any of them and if you go at the wrong time they can have more tourists in the them than Parisians. Definitely go, though--they're all a lot of fun.
