Basic question re paris restaurants...

tessari Aug 3, 2012 01:16 PM

It's been 7 years since I've lived in Paris ....what do Parisians use these days to find restaurants that's the equivalent of Yelp or Zagats? My reading comprehension is pretty good so I can easily navigate a site that is in French.

Thanks in advance.

    Do you really want the equivalent of Yelp or Zagats? If so, why not use them? Better by far is Chowhound with its handful of Parisian reporters. If you insist on reading, there is le fooding or omnivore or Paris by Mouth, but the current Paris-based hounds are hard to beat and tell it like it is.

      Parisians may use websites like Cityvox, L'Internaute or La Fourchette for basic information, but they are not regularly updated.

      Thanks! I will see what the hounds recommend.
      I now recall that I used Cityvox and Zagats in combination.
      Now I just need to build the perfect itinerary of my old haunts and new gems....lots of work to do!

        I'm a Parisian, and I use Chowhound :)

        Unfortunately I have yet to find a resource as good and trustworthy in french.
