Where to Find the Best Paris Wine Restaurants

Where are the best Paris wine restaurants? Visitors to Paris seek out wine bars, but for a perfect dining experience, discover the best Paris wine restaurants. This newer trend allows restaurateurs to offer a quality wine and food experience. There are different types of restaurants: some are wine bars, while others are more like a French restaurant.

Here are three of our favorite Paris wine restaurants to visit on your next trip.

  • Le Verre Volé

Le Verre Volé is often deemed a wine bar, a name that it refuses, because it is so much more than that. This “cave à manger” focuses on its bottles and its fusion small plates. Both combine flavors from France and beyond. The wine list features natural wines. And the knowledgeable staff will help you out if you unfamiliar with this wine movement.

This cozy dining room fills up quickly early in the evening. Be sure to stop by early to get a table. Or, Le Verre Volé sur Mer, the seafood-focused little sister of the original, is just up the street. Be sure to follow up dinner with a stroll along the nearby Canal Saint-Martin.
