From quintessential French bistros to the trendiest healthy eating spots, Paris is quite simply foodie heaven. Read on for the top ten Paris restaurants available on Deliveroo, nominated by our very own food scene insiders at Deliveroo in Paris.

Named after the charming 2003 animated film, Tripletta is appropriately located in Belleville. This Italian pizza joint is all about the quality of the ingredients, and they don't disappoint. Luscious San Marzano tomatoes, fior di latte mozzarella from Agerola and real pecorino cheese – this is the real deal, whether it's pizza or the ultra fresh salads that take your fancy. But for the pizza de resistance, go for the Marinara: it's just tomato, garlic and basil, but this trio really packs a punch.
Le petit Cambodge
It turns out there's a little bit of Cambodia nestled in Paris. Close to the Canal Saint Martin, Le petit Cambodge is an institution, and the restaurant itself is always full. Each dish is homemade, and the menu showcases everything from delicious bobuns (including vegetarian options), curries and more. And if that's not enough, it's even been given the seal of approval by Action Bronson himself.
Who can resist the call of hummus? Certainly not us, especially since we discovered Rimal. This family-run bistro,deli and restaurant rolled into one transports you to the heart of Lebanon. Sharing is encouraged – moutabel, tabouleh, borek and sambouseks are all on the menu here – and, with loads of vegetarian options, there's plenty for everyone. Our favourite? The Makanik – a plate of small sausages spiced with coriander, flambeed in lemon juice. Delicious.
Paris New York
No need to find your passport for a taste of the other side of the Atlantic – it's right on your doorstep. Paris New York, or PNY as it's called by those in the know, has established itself in a few short years as a firm favourite of Parisian burger lovers. Highlights include the Morning California, featuring fresh avocado, the magnificent Return of the Cowboy, with smoky bacon and onion rings, and the Atomic veggie burger, with portobello mushrooms and aged cheddar.
Clasico Argentino is to cooking what Leo Messi is to football, and the menu reads like a highlight reel of South American cuisine, with everything from empanadas – mini pasties stuffed with meat or vegetables – to helados, the classic homemade Argentine ice cream. ¡Buen provecho!
Mizushi is a customer favourite at Deliveroo in Paris. It serves ultra fresh, ultra delicious sushi, maki, chirashi and California rolls – but our top tip is the Salmon Roll with salmon, eggs and cheese. We just can't get enough!
If you're on a health kick, look no further than Cojean, which caters for busy Parisians who have one eye on their watch, and the other on their waistline. The menu showcases the best seasonal produce, with surprising recipes like this unconventional marriage of salmon and raspberry. Vegans are also well served here – the basil tofu sandwich is to die for.
French-Korean Pierre Sang Boyer was a finalist in the 2011 series of the French television show, Top Chef. But his biggest claim to fame is the two restaurants he has gone on to open, showcasing bibimbap with beef, salmon or vegetarian options for just €10, all served with aromatic, spicy ssamjang, a traditional Korean homemade dipping sauce. This is a lunch break game changer.
A temple to Indian cuisine located, appropriately enough, in the Temple Quartier of Paris. Drawing inspiration from the city's Persian coffee houses, MG Road offers Bombay cuisine with a twist, like Chicken Tikka with pesto and broccoli. Other favourites include grilled corn with goji berries, and for dessert be sure to check out the Daulat Ki Chaat – a silky mousse made with milk and saffron that's the perfect note to end on.
Pastry chef Yann Couvreur exploded onto the food scene in the kitchens of some of the most palatial hotels in Paris. But in 2016 he opened his own patisserie, which was an immediate hit. The chocolate-tonka eclair is a must-try, but there's also something for those with a more savoury tooth – check out some of the delicious salads, like the Vegan Fox, as well as quiches and sandwiches.
