Frankies Favourite Restaurants in Paris

You may or may not know but Mr Dettori is a big foodie, he loves nothing more than a good restaurant…. Well maybe winning the Arc again might be better! But he does love a good feed!

We caught up with him this week to find out some of his favourite restaurants in the city, and with all going well where he might be celebrating!


Frankie says- “ I love Japanese food wherever I am in the world - you can’t beat it and this is one of the best around”


This is much more than just a restaurant, we visited it last year on his recommendation and it really does live up to its reputation. It has a vibrant bar and views galore. Kong has a spectacular glass roof so you can look over Paris and drink in the view while sipping on one of their fantastic cocktails! The decor is ultra modern and it has a great atmosphere, with a live DJ and a great bar if you just fancy a drink.

Now onto the all important food! The food here is next level good, all beautifully presented to you and with perfect portion sizes and great sharing plates, you can try plenty! One of the best Japanese restaurants around and worth a try!

Chez Francoise

Frankie says- “Amazing local cuisine, a must try for proper French food”


Everything you want in a proper French restaurant, local cuisine, waiters that barely speak English and all set in a truly French style.


The food is beautifully done with traditional French dishes and fantastic wines to accompany. The sea-bass is so delicious and comes highly recommended! Just a heads up this can, like many french restaurants, be hard to find so follow the directions carefully!


Frankie says- “This one is a little fancy, but the setting is stunning and the food is fantastic”


This place is amazing, and once you step inside you will see why. You almost can’t believe you are in a bustling city. The restaurant is a piece of heaven in this crazy city, complete with a gorgeous courtyard garden.


This is no ordinary restaurant, it has 3 Michelin stars no less. It is set in the Le Bristol Hotel which is located in the heart of the city. The hotel is one of the most highly regarded in Paris and of course has the price tags to match, however if you are looking to treat yourselves then this is the place for you!
