Vegetarian Restaurants in France

You might be surprised by how many vegetarian restaurants there are in France. This list includes vegetarian and vegan restaurants in France, as well as traditional restaurants that have a nice vegetarian selection.

Also, I often call traditional restaurants to make a reservation at least a couple of days in advance. I tell the chef I’m a vegetarian (making sure to specify no meat or fish), and I’ve always been rewarded with an excellent meal. In my experience, they enjoy the challenge, and the early notice gives them plenty of time to figure out the menu and go shopping.
