Hamish Bowles: Must Go

Balagan Restaurant


9 Rue d'Alger, 75001 Paris, France



If you find yourself in Paris yearning for a breath of culinary air amidst buttery breakfasts, cream-filled lunches and wine-infused dinners, look no further than restaurant Balagan, situated seconds away from the Tulleries gardens, Place Vendôme and the Musée du Louvre.

This characteristically ‘un-French’ restaurant offers over the moon delicious Israeli food in an energetic atmosphere. With an engaging group of young staff headed by the irrepressible master of ceremonies, Tomer, Balagan is a must go destination for authentic Israeli cuisine hidden within a characteristically Parisian landscape.
