The Best Restaurants in Batignolles 


 

Littered with quirky shops and charming bistros, the Batignolles district can be found in the 17th arrondissemen. This is a notoriously more bohemian part of Paris, where sustainability and eco-conscious living is slowly becoming a way of life.

First timers to the Batignolles neighborhood are usually blown away by the variety of cuisines that this area has to offer, and it’s all thanks to the diversity of culture and nationalities that call Batignolles home. 

Here are 10 of the very best restaurants in the area, in no particular order. 

1. Coretta in Batignolles

Known for being the one-stop-shop if you’re in the market for fantastic food, great vibes and an overall memorable time. At just €42 per person for a 3 course meal delight, many who eat here remark that they would have paid far more for the experience they were given.

2. Bodrum Restaurant in Batignolles

Widely considered the best place for kebab in all of Paris, people come from all over just to eat in this low-key establishment. This long-loved Turkish cafe owns the hearts of the Batignolles locals, and flies the Turk flag proudly by feeding all that walk through the doors.

No Parisian restaurant roundup is complete without at least one creperie, and this one in the Batignolles has me visiting the area a lot more often than I normally would.

5. Restaurant Biotiful in Batignolles

Any pizza restaurant that can afford to close their doors from Sunday to Monday has got to be doing something right. Biotiful is an eccentric spot in which pizzas and cocktails are the name of the game.

7. Buzkashi Restaurant in Batignolles

There are few restaurants that can capture the robust flavors of Afghan cuisine quite like this hidden gem in the Batignolles. Afghan dining isn’t unheard of in this neck of the woods, but there are many who would regard this particular spot as some of the “best food in all of Paris”. 

The energy of the waiters sets the scene for something memorable, before you’ve even picked up a menu. What follows is nothing short of magic.

8. L’Endroit in Batignolles

Another thing a restaurant roundup cannot miss is that of a good old fashioned brasserie. This one is right on the edge of a the Batignolles Square, an accessible green space that I recommend for a stroll.

9. Mamma Primi in the Batignolles

Since this is a food-centered part of Paris, I’d be totally remiss to let anyone come all the way to the 17th and not eat the best Italian food in town.
