Format: Paperback
An ideal book for those who are going to Paris to restaurant-crawl! I did, and found the book to be accurate in description and cost projections. For once there is a book that does not centre on the expensive luxury end of the market, but recommends good restaurants across all price bands.
The recipes are excellent too!

Format: Paperback
‘The Food Lover's Guide to Paris’ written by Patricia Wells is a well-made guide for finding best places for eating pleasures in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, with a note that it will primarily be of use to those who are visiting Paris for the first time.

All people who have ever been to Paris will probably agree that it comes to a city where at the same time you can eat the best in the world, but also can be completely disappointed with quality, but especially in consideration what you got for your money. Sometimes even for not so small amount you spent.

There everyone think they know how to cook or rather they are aware that the perception of tourists is that the French are good cooks and consequently restaurants, bistros and cafés can often be found in endless rows where it’s exceptionally hard to orient only on the basis of what is written on the front boards and to be sure how much and what you will be offered.

Therefore this guide is excellent because it provides numerous good recommendations for people who are coming to Paris and do not want to overly prepare in advance by conducting research where to eat. Reader inside will find list of restaurants, bistros, brasseries and cafés, but also some shops that offers specialties, wine, and most important, markets where you can often find a lot of good things.

Additionally, besides covering the food offer, inside the book many interesting tips can be found that explain some cultural differences that will make tourist stay even more pleasant. And finally Patricia Wells included some 40 original recipes that will help you remember the time spent in Paris or to prepare yourself for the arrival in the City of Light.

Format: Paperback
This is a good guide to food in Paris, but not, I thnk, the best. In fact I have an earlier edition, from 1984/5 (second edition) in which I find the writing superior. On the other hand, of course, the new fifth edition is pretty much up to date. Accurate as far as I can see, with a decent style of writing. Definitely more a guide book than a book about Paris and its eating places.

Went to Paris for four days and visited about four places recommended on the book. I downloaded the kindle edition and it was quick and easy to use, especially for the brilliant extensive food glossary.
The four places I visited delivered excellent food (way above expectations) and excellent service - really pleased :)

Great book, we tried some of the restaurants and had a wonderful time. The translations at the back was great especially as my French is fairly limited.

Many things I wanted to find were not in the book. Some restaurants she highly recommends were disappointing. C'est tout.
