1. L'Atelier de Joël Robuchon 5 Rue Montalembert, Paris, 75007

This place serves top of the line French cuisine that doesn't break the bank. You can get yourself a foie gras for €29, a crabe royale for €45, and a dinner menu that will only put you down €175.

2. Relais Louis XIII 8 Rue des Grands-Augustins, Paris, 75006 (St Germain Des Pres)

€55 for a lunch ain't bad considering this is a two-star resto. That price makes it one of the best bargains in the city for a Michelin-starred establishment that sits precisely where Louis XIII was proclaimed king in 1610. History and a deal, all in one package.

3. Pavillon Ledoyen 1 Avenue Dutuit, Paris, 75008 (Champs Elysees)

Located in the 8th arrondissement, this is one of the very few three-star restos referred to as a "budget" choice. That's mostly thanks to its lunch menu (dinner can run up upwards of €310). Regardless, you'll be hard pressed to find a more luxurious resto in the gardens of the Champs-Elysees.

4. Passage 53 53, passage des Panoramas, Paris, 75002

53 will be your new favorite number after a visit here. It's headed up by Japanese Chef Shinishi Sato and focuses on local, French ingredients with creative twists, which has earned it a pair of stars.

5. L'Astrance 4 Rue Beethoven, Paris, 75016

The unique quality of this three-star French resto is that you don't get to pick what you eat. There is no menu and no a la carte. Whatever Chef Pascal Barbot feels like cooking that day is what you'll get. But don't worry, it'll be fantastic.

6. Le Pré Catelan Route de Suresnes, Paris, 75016

You can snag an upscale dinner for 200€ and a classy lunch 105€, which isn't bad considering the foie gras alone on the a la carte menu prices in at 100€. Believe us when we say it is a bargain for the quality and the location, which happens to be in the middle of a serene park.
