Paris and the Glatt Kosher Sign :
Today, the term Glatt Kosher is often used informally to imply that a product was processed under a strict standard of kashrut
Here in Paris, you’ll find different restaurants serving kosher food. I made a list below of my favorite ones.
I am sorry to tell you that some of the restaurants write by hand : “Casher” on their boutique when the food is not “casher”.
So here are the signs to look for, if you’re eating kosher (with the specificities)
This bright orange sign in comes from the Beth Din of Paris, which is regulated by the Consistoire : major Jewish organisation in France.
This is kosher, but Not Glatt Kosher.
Important Note : Some Restaurants in Rue des Rosiers, put the David Star on their storefront or a Mizouza in the boutiques, but this does not mean they are Kosher.
Also, They are often open on Sabbath and in holidays.
My top picks of the kosher restaurants in Paris
- Pitzman ( Glatt Kosher , Vegetarian, but with fish … )
This is the Pitzman Family owned restaurant, the style is a bit everything french casual with pizza with tuna, pasta, grattins, falafel, crepes , soups , fish of the day
Address : 8, rue Pavée 75004 Paris Phone : 0142711717
- Rodchenko ( my favorite one, Kosher but not Glatt Kosher)
French style, Kosher restaurant in the beautiful street of Rue des Ecouffes. Very tasty food.
- Kavod ( Never tried it myself, but I hear it is very good )
French style, Kosher restaurant, a bit more expensive than the others. Prestigious and fancy.
- L’As du Fallafel ( 3 star , very marketed on tripadvisor, so there will be a long line in front )
If you go to As de Falafel, and wait in line, some of the boys will ask you to pay in advance to make the line quicker but actually it is a trick to make you stay in line and not change your mind.
In my opinion, I would never wait for one hour for this falafel even though trip advisor says the best about it.
Address : 32-34, rue des Rosiers 75004 Paris
- Dhouib ( Sephardic , Tunisian style and Kosher )
I tried this restaurant many time with my family. you can also pre-order for shabbat with this little tunisian restaurant.
Address : 11 Bis Rue Geoffroy-Marie, Paris, France

My top picks of the kosher bakeries in Paris
- Korcarz ( This boutique is included in our Jewish walking tour in le Marais Paris )
Great service, large choice of pastries, sandwiches, quiches, bagels and great coffee place.
They offer both sephardic and ashkenazi pastries !
Address : 29, rue des Rosiers 75004 Paris
- Murciano ( I take it for breakfast as it is in front of my office in Rue des rosiers, but there is no place to sit )
This is a bakery that you can not miss in Rue des Rosiers. The most beautiful Jewish bakery in my opinion as the owners, originally from Morocco, kept the french ornaments inside, like the in the 19th century.
Address : 18, rue des Rosiers 75004 Paris
My name is Flora Goldenberg,
I am a Licensed Tour Guide specialized in the Jewish Walking Tours in Paris and private museum tours like the Louvre, Versailles & Orsay, for example, since I was 22. I am licensed by the state after studying History and Art at the Sorbonne University for 5 years. I was born and raised in le Marais, so the Jewish neighborhood of Paris is my Home : I am the granddaughter of Joe Goldenberg, owner of a famous restaurant in the Pletzl. As my mother is a tour guide as well, she inspired me in my work. We designed together the Jewish Walking Tour of our beautiful neighborhood.
We will explore the Jewish Quarter located in the heart of Paris, the “Pletzl”, which has been the center of Jewish life in Paris since the 13th century.
While walking in the paved narrow streets of Le Marais, you will learn about the history of the Jewish communities in Paris, for more than 2000 years. We will talk about the history of the Jews in the Middle ages, when they were persecuted and expelled from the country in 1394. We’ll talk about the time of the French Revolution, and the occupation of Paris during WWII, and you will have the chance to discover some hidden places that only a local can know about.
I organize visits inside the synagogues.
We will discover the Jewish shops, bakeries, bookstores.
The tour can include a visit of the Holocaust memorial in the end.
After the tour you can stay in Le Marais for lunch, and maybe try the famous best falafel or the new trendy Jewish restaurants in Rue des Rosiers.
