baby-friendly paris

  • t


we're taking a 7 month old to paris next month and plan on visiting markets and having picnics as well as eating outdoors at bistros during the day, but does anyone have suggestions of specific restaurants that would be appropriate for dining with babies? thanks in advance!

  1. When will you be there exactly? We're planning to be there at the end of May with our 2.5 year old daughter so we will be looking for similar places to eat. We're hoping to find smaller family style bistros as opposed to more glamourous restaurants. My husband's grandmother lives there so I can safely assume she'll know where we could find family friendly places to stuff ourselves silly;)

      I was in Paris in December with then 6 month old. I was blown away by how fantastic the Parisians were about a baby in tow. We had no problem anywhere we went. Enjoy! And may you have fab weather.

        This is absolutely true. Paris is the most baby-friendly restaurant city that I've experienced.

    2. We visited Paris last November with our (then) 7-month old. We had a fabulous time! We mostly ate at cafes and bistros where we could sit outside, or we picked up a sandwich or a crepe on the fly. We rented an apartment, and at night we mostly ate delicious frozen food from the ubiquitous Piccard stores (highly recommended). Have a wonderful time.
