The 5 Best Vegan Restaurants In Paris

Paris is one of the most active cities in the world right now in terms of new vegan locations opening. So it can be hard to choose among all the options you have for eating vegan in our beautiful French capital city. We’ve made a selection of the best vegan restaurants in Paris to help you!


Le Potager de Charlotte

First opened in 2015, Le Potager de Charlotte is a family-run restaurant founded by two brothers, David and Adrien, and named after their mother, Charlotte. They combine their skills (in the culinary arts and naturopathy, respectively) to offer delicious gourmet vegan cuisine.

On their menu, you’ll find healthy, tasty and unique dishes made with seasonal products, such as this chickpea and rice pancake with cashew cream and herbs. It’s out of this world! They also offer delightful vegan desserts. Take a look at their recipe gallery to get a better idea of their creations.

Our favorite dish: the chickpea and rice pancake with herbed cashew cream and Espelette pepper.

Booking a table is highly recommended as the place is in high demand!

Address: 12 rue de la Tour d’Auvergne, 75009 Paris

Gentle Gourmet

The first vegan restaurant in the fine-dining category to open its doors in Paris (in 2012), Gentle Gourmet is still one of the best, revisiting French haute cuisine with a more eco-friendly and ethical approach.

Their creative and delicious dishes offer new flavors and textures with a high-end, gourmet touch and attention to seasonality. Most of the produce they use is grown in their own organic kitchen garden in the Normandy region north of Paris.

The prices at Gentle Gourmet are the highest on this list but it’s really worth it when you want to indulge!

Our favorite dish: “The Famous” is a roasted Portobello mushroom burger, garnished with a pickled tempeh tartar, with a homemade mayonnaise (really delicious), served with baby potatoes sauteed (the best potatoes).

As with the previous restaurant, booking a table is highly recommended.

Address: 24 Boulevard de la Bastille, 75012 Paris

Jah Jah by Le Tricycle

The second location opened in Paris by Rasta chefs Coralie Jouhier and Daqui Gomis, this restaurant is one of its kind on the vegan scene of Paris. They offer Afro-vegan cuisine inspired largely by the culinary traditions of South America, India and the Caribbean. Prepare yourself for an exciting journey for the senses!

Their approach is based on the Rastafarian (or Ital) diet, which excludes processed and animal products, dairy, fish and frozen products. So you’ll taste only fresh or dried products here, and it’s always vegan! The menu offers a wide range of choices: from the hot dog, to the sides of sweet potatoes or plantains with guacamole, to the bowl of the day, which is full of flavors and colors, available in cold, hot or raw versions. The cherry on top for the gluten-intolerant is that their dishes are always gluten-free.

We really love this location, which is full of positive energy, both on the plates and in the air. They also hold events on veganism and the Ital diet!

Our favorite dishes: the raw rolls with peanut and coconut sauce. A delight!

The cauliflower “wings” with BBQ sauce and the sweet potatoes (sides) are amazing too.

Address: 11 rue des Petites Ecuries, 75010 Paris

Tien Hiang

Operating since 1999, Tien Hiang is an Asian vegan restaurant that has long been a must for every vegan in Paris.

The dishes reflect the cuisine of South-East Asia, from Vietnam to Malaysia. The menu is vegan with the exception of the marmite Tien Hiang, which contains cheese. They make all their products in-house too. For a unique experience, try the dishes that include “pork” or “chicken”, which are made with soy protein or jackfruit and ingeniously reproduce the texture of meat and fish.

The success of this location led them to open a second restaurant in 2017, and this one is always 100% vegan in line with customer demand.

Our favorite dish: the sticky rice cooked in a lotus leaf, with shiitake mushrooms, chestnuts and beans. True comfort food for body and soul!

They don’t take reservations and the number of seats is limited, so you have to get there early!

Address: 14 rue Bichat, 75010 Paris

Welcome to the Home of the Plant Eaters (H.O.P.E.). This fairly new restaurant (founded in 2017) quickly gained a prominent place alongside the other more established vegan restaurants in Paris. And that’s no accident.

H.O.P.E. offers a small menu (which is often a good sign) with 100% house-made gourmet vegan dishes. Organic products account for 90% of the ingredients they use, and their creations are always developed around seasonal produce. Their dishes offer a wide range of colors and flavors and are truly delicious. Honestly, it’s hard to choose from the different main courses (risotto, burger, bowl) because they’re all so delectable. So you just have to try them all to form your own opinion!

And don’t forget to save room for the vegan desserts! Especially the moelleux au chocolat (molten chocolate cake). Your taste buds will never forget it!

It’s a really good place on the Paris vegan restaurant scene to keep your eyes on over the next few years.

Our favorite dish: the Green Burger with its chickpea and mushroom patty, caramelized onions and house-made sweet potato fries. Definitely worth a try!

Booking a table is recommended as the place gets busy fast.

Address: 19 rue de Picardie, 75003 Paris
