Enjoy An Unforgettable Meal at Paris Café Les Deux Magots

After a long day exploring, my friends and I found ourselves dining at one of the oldest cafes in all of Paris, Les Deux Magots.

Established as a cafe/bar back in the late 1800s, Les Deux Magots has been a popular staple of the city and once sought out by the likes of Hemingway, Picasso, André Gide, Jean Giraudoux and others. This place has such a deep connection within the literary world, in 1933 they created the Prix des Deux Magots, a major French literary award that recognizes less mainstream works. There’s definitely a lot of history here… and really good food too.

Where To Get Drinks At After Dinner In Paris: Le Syndicat (Speakeasy Cocktail Lounge)

If you’re the type to just show up for dinner and wing it, you can expect a long wait. If you prefer to plan, you can make a reservation here. I recommend sitting outside on their patio, especially if you’ve spent the day roaming the city like I did. Order a nice bottle of wine and soak in the sounds of Paris under the night sky. It made for quite the relaxing evening.

Despite having a tough time choosing what I want to eat at every restaurant, I’m an undeniably huge sucker for risotto. I spotted the shrimp risotto on the menu and my choice was made. I didn’t regret it either. By the time I was done, the dish ranked high for best risottos of all time. My friend Mathew had the filet de Selle d’agneau (beef filet and green beans), that was also very delicious.

If I had to rate my experience here from a scale of 1 to 10, it would be a 15. The ambiance, customer service, food and everything in between, made for a great last meal in Paris. With that being said, this will be the first place I dine when I return to the City of Light.
