Quality and expertise, French style
Restaurants de France is an International Guide distinguishing French restaurants which are located abroad (outside France and its Overseas Territories) and adhere to our demanding Quality Charter – the foundation stone of our activity.
French chefs or chefs trained in French cuisine work in their establishments every day all over the world so that you can share their passion for the gastronomy of France and its internationally renowned recipes, products and special values.
They are thus exceptional Ambassadors of what, in France, represents a true Art of Living, classified as one of UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Assets since 2010.

The Restaurants de France Guide
A look at the world
for Paul Bocuse:
« The good cooking, it is when we aise the lid, when that smokes, when that smells good and when we can serve again ».
The UNESCO’s experts considered that the gastronomic meal of the French, with its rituals and presentation, fulfilled the conditions for joining the list of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity !
The French are proud of it : French cuisine is highly valued worldwide !
The evidence lies in the fact that Tokyo has the most Michelin-starred restaurants, but also the most French restaurants in a city abroad. Many Japanese chefs cook French ! Tokyo has an unsual love for our gastronomy. And the French word “restaurant” is used and understood in every country.
