1. PARISIAN GEM: Au Vieux Paris d’Arcole in Île de la cité (24 rue Chanoinesse 75004)

🇫🇷 Au Vieux Paris d’Arcole is registered as one of the oldest documented restaurants in Paris, located 100 meters away from Notre Dame, and is one of my favorite quartiers: l'ile St Louis. It was built around the same time Notre Dame Cathedral was completed, in 1512. It was once home to the Canon of the Cathedral.


🇫🇷 Quaint, unique, and affordable restaurant, perfect for a glass of wine in a French velvety unique atmosphere. J'adore cet endroit! Don't mistake it for just a fantastic place for a worthy Instagram. Follow me and step inside this well-kept secret of Paris.

This small restaurant may not look like much from the outside, but is simply breathtaking! Set over two floors, the ground floor level comes complete with a vintage bar and authentic tavern feel, while the upper floor greets you with a small ante-chamber room with several dining tables and a cozy fireplace.


🇫🇷 My favorite dishes to order:

Plat principal = the main course = Filet de Daurade Royale (sea bream fillet) or Confit de Canard (duck confit... my absolute favorite!) or you can try their Ravioli also.

Dessert = Crêpe Suzette ou Crème brûlée with an Expresso bien sur!

🇫🇷 A step down this street is stepping into the very underbelly of medieval Paris. You wish that walls could talk when you walk down cette rue (this street). C'est formidable, agréable et mémorable!
