Seeking Restaurant recommendation in 17th arrondissement


We will be staying in the 17th arrondissement for 5 days at end of September. If you have any recommendations for restaurants in this area (range of 30-100 euros), would greatly appreciate it!

  1. Three obvious choices, and each is not to be missed:

    123, avenue de Wagram - Paris 75017
    Tel: 01 42 27 61 50, Subway: Wagram - 50 €

    Chez Georges
    273, boulevard Pereire - Paris 75017
    Tel: 01 45 74 31 00, Subway: Porte Maillot - 40 €

    Guy Savoy
    18, rue Troyon - Paris 75017
    Tel: 01 43 80 40 61, Subway: Charles de Gaulle - Etoile - 85 €

    Don't waste any belly space on non-french food, you can eat italian, greek and Mexican when you get back home...

      Savoy is great, but for 85euros, you'll have one course and water -- even the special on internet order lunch menu is 100 + beverage

      1. re: souphie

        Yes one course, but that one course is full plate of protein, starch, and vegetable served with breads and bottled water. I get one glass of wine, and I'm well fed for 100 euros total for lunch at a 3-star - it's not daily fare but, well worth it once in a while.

        1. re: BigboyDan

          you're right -- we should do that more often

    2. I highly recommend this exceptional 1 star. They specialize in cooking from the SW of France.

      la Braiserie
      54 Rue Cardinet
      01 47 63 40 37

      1. Le gourmet des ternes -- don't miss the butter tender beef and the baba au rhum.

        Find dining: Michel Rostang for the great 79euros lunch menu (see review at

        Next door id le bistrot d'a cote (they share their fridges-- the Rostang family) and also Il etait une oie dans l'ouest

        1. Also to mention that Bath's is good (Was there last weekend) but not such a pleasant place, very design but cold. Also, we waited a lot and they look seriously understaffed. So it was not a very nice evening despite an excellent company. But the food is good and not expensive. The restaurant across the street Villebois-Mareuil is nicer but has a very short menu and wine list. I like it but not everybody does.

            Thank you for all your recommendations!

          2. For something a little different, try the restaurant at l'Institut Vatel, the local cooking school. We were very pleased, and it fits your budget very nicely. Food was inventive, fresh, service excellent. All prepared and served by students, under professional supervision. A surprisingly elegang diining room, and wonderful experience.

              Indeed cooking schools are often a great idea. A bit risky but always unusual and often a great deal. In the 17th, there is the most famous ecole hoteliere in France, rue Médéric.
