The 1 kg Rib of Beef

9/10: France Hotel Guide’s expert rating

In this street in the 4th arrondissement, this steakhouse specializes in high-quality matured French beef, cooked by a chef who knows how to thrill your taste buds.

Come and eat their 300g Rib-Eye (450g for the bigger eaters), the 250g Veal Liver or the Flank 220g Steak; everything is delicious and melts in your mouth. You can eat these along with French Fries, mashed potatoes, or vegetables.

Personally, I suggest you come and share this moment of gastronomic pleasure with your friends around the Rib of Beef (1 kg), its accompaniments, and its homemade sauces.

We love: Premium quality meat, crusty on the outside and melty on the inside.

Menu Price: Dish of the day €14.90

9.3/10: France Hotel Guide’s expert rating

Being one of the many “speakeasy” restaurants in Paris, Bidoche has many quality meats for you on the menu, along with a warm ambiance and a cheerful butcher.

At first sight, this place from the 11th arrondissement may be a simple butcher shop like the others. But do not be fooled by appearances, because behind the counter, a restaurant is hidden in the back of the establishment.

On the menu: tartar of beef, veal or lamb as the starter, followed by the Bidoche Dish (300g of the meat of your choice), and the dessert of the day to finish. Here is a menu that will satisfy you.

You will get to choose the meat you want if you order the “Bidoche au Poids” with the cheerful butcher. Your piece of meat will then be taken to be cooked in the kitchen, before being served at your table.

We love: its concept of a restaurant-butcher shop based on the “speakeasy” phenomenon inspired by the Prohibition in the U.S. in the 1920s.

Average Price: €20 – €30

Wagyu Restaurant 1129

18 Rue du Louvre, 75001 Paris

Japanese Barbecue Kobe Beef

10/10: France Hotel Guide’s expert rating

For a culinary trip to Asia, Wagyu Restaurant 1129 will make you discover the yakiniku, or the Japanese barbecue.

The Wagyu beef (beef from Kobé) being a cut of meat that tempts all the meat-lovers who like Japanese culture for its unrivaled quality; those people will get the opportunity to enjoy it grilled, and according to their wishes (how they want the meat cooked).

The restaurant offers multiple meat platters; customers place the meat on the grill in the middle of their table. They can also have a plate of vegetables or mushrooms to go with the meat.

My favorite on their menu is the Matsu 280g platter, with their crusty and savory appetizers. Wagyu beef is a true delight!

We love: the concept of Japanese barbecues: a piece of meat cooked in only twenty seconds, and an anti-odor ventilation system.

Price: €59–€206



Les Provinces

20 Rue d’Aligre, 75012 Paris

Restaurant-Butcher Shop French beef specialty

9.1/10: France Hotel Guide’s expert rating

Les Provinces is a rather peculiar restaurant: not only is it a dining barn, but it also functions as a butcher shop where you can purchase meat products.

The butcher opens the doors of his butcher shop in the 12th arrondissement for you, and he is capable of recognizing and choosing quality meat for you.

You will have a variety of meat to choose such as lamb leg, hamburger made with foie gras, or veal sweetbread. Here’s an honorable mention for the chitterling sausage, a main course that I personally recommend.

We love: a butcher who knows the many types of meat, the concept of mixing a restaurant and a butcher shop, and the quality products.

Price: €20–€30

Known as the oldest rotisserie from the Halles de Paris, this restaurant opens its doors with its collection of meat which is crusty on the outside and melty on the inside.

Located at the angle of Rue des Prouvaires, Le Louchebem is a restaurant that has been well-known in Paris since 1878.

In a warm atmosphere, the cooks have the know-how to make you melt with joy with all their delightful meats, prepared in various ways.

Try out the Iberian pork pluma for the main course, and if you have friends around, share the Bavarian Rib Steak (1 kg) with them. If you want a dessert afterward, go for either a cheesecake or a lemon pie.

My favorite dish on the menu? The Bavarian filet steak, it is as tender as you desire.

Loco was founded in Rue du Faubourg Montmartre by three friends originating from Argentina who wanted to give France the best meat coming from their motherland.

Along with premium quality meat, Loco also offers the best wine coming from Argentina, as well as wine from France and from all over Europe.

Textured, flavourful and powerful meats are served. You will love the 200g or 300g Bife de Chorizo (sirloin) or the 300g Entraña (hampe). You can also taste the “Guest Meats” like the Tomahawk prime rib from the USA (1,3 kg) for 2 people.

Korean Barbecue

9/10: France Hotel Guide’s expert rating

Let’s go to the 14th arrondissement to introduce you to Joayo Luxembourg, a restaurant with an Asian theme that’ll make you discover Korean barbecues.

Take your seat, for the barbecue is in the middle of your table and ready to be used. All that’s left to do is to place your marinated or spiced meats or vegetables on the grill and let it cook.

The formula is only available during lunchtime, so you will have to order on the menu. My favorite is the combo of pork belly and marinated duck served with a bowl of rice. What a true delight!

We love: the variety of meats on the menu, the cheap prices, and a meal rich in flavor.

It’s in the 11th arrondissement that the restaurant Melt was founded before opening up in 2 other streets in Paris.

This Steakhouse offers authentic Texan cuisine with premium quality meat, marinated for hours, smoked and cooked on a grill fueled with oak wood, followed with condiments, marinated for many hours.

You are going to enjoy your meal, especially the brisket which was smoked for 15 hours, the duck breast, or the burgers made of extra tender meat.

If you are in a group of 5 people, enjoy their platters to share: an assortment of all their meats served at the time of your visit. We can guarantee that you won’t be disappointed.

We love: the order happening at the counter before taking your seat, and the many accompaniments (cornbread, coleslaw, mushrooms, etc.).

It’s with a Brazilian ambiance and roasted halal meats served as you like them, cooked on a spit in the “churrascaria” style, cut by the waiters directly at your table, that the restaurant Rodizio welcomes you. All that is left is the dancers to make you want to dance the samba!

The restaurant Rodizio opens its doors with its 6 menus with 1 Veggie and 1 Kids Menu.

Their buffet composed of typical dishes such as the Feijoada (the national dish) or the Moqueca (seafood stew) will take you on a gustative trip. Next stop, Rio de Janeiro!

For the meats, I recommend the Beef Picanha cooked with coarse salt (exotic cut of rump steak), the tender Maminha (baroness aiguillette), or Brazilian merguez sausages.

We love: the concept of Rodizio itself.
