Eat with locals in Paris
Looking for a unique dining experience and the chance to eat with locals in Paris? Whether you're after a gourmet French tasting menu with a view of the Eiffel Tower, a food walk through Montmartre, a French pastry cooking class or a classic wine and cheese tasting, Eatwith has got you covered.
See Paris like a local!
Oh, Paris. One stroll down the Seine and it's easy to see why almost 18 million tourists visited the City of Light last year. From its romantic cobblestone streets and Haussmanian architecture, to its chic restaurant scene offering everything from traditional French fare to gastronomic delicacies, you can't go wrong with a trip to Paris.
And while Notre Dame and the Eiffel Tower are definite must-sees, the best way to really see Paris is to meet local Parisians. It's easier than you think... Don't let their prickly reputation put you off! The best way to get the most authentic experience is to sit down and eat with a local French family. Our local hosts and experienced chefs offer a variety of lunches, dinners, cooking classes, food tours and more to give you a true taste of Paris!
No matter what time of year you visit Paris, whether you're visiting solo, with friends or with an 'amour', our Eatwith hosts are waiting to welcome you into their chic apartments with open arms. Book a seat to get a sneak peek into Parisian homes, unique studios and hidden venues, and try delicious world-class food.
