Eating and Drinking in France

France Restaurants Guides

France is famous throughout the world for its haute cuisine, elegant food and top chefs. French restaurants have without doubt had a great influence on western cuisine, with many dishes based on traditional French recipes.

The various regions of France each specialise in their own distinctive types of food, often being served at atmospheric bistros, which are full of character. France is also known for its wineries and vineyards, with most restaurants in France offering a good selection of local wines, many of which are extremely inexpensive.

Breakfast in France generally starts with a fairly light breakfast of coffee, fruit juice, bread and jam, pastries or croissants, and also often cereals. Hotel restaurants in France often supplement croissants with other pastries, such as pains au chocolat or similar. Lunch in France is typically served between 12:00 and 14:00, with evening dinner anytime after 18:00. The French consider mealtimes to be an important part of daily life and tend to eat at a leisurely pace.

France has embraced the street-café culture, with an array of restaurants, bars and coffee shops featuring outdoor seating areas and terraces, where you can watch the world go by. This is particularly so in Paris, the capital city of France, where you can enjoy a cup of coffee on the pavements of the Champs Elysées, with views of the Arc de Triomphe, amongst other streets and avenues.
