12 Best French Restaurants In Mumbai In 2019

It’s a very well-known fact that the French love their food and desserts. it is pretty apparent in the way they present their food and savour it too. After all, we owe the patisserie, viennoiserie and boulangerie culture to them. More often than not people tend to associate just baguettes and croissants with French cuisine but it is so much more than that. We set out to look for the best French restaurants in Mumbai and this is what we found.

1. Pisalardiere At Mustard, Worli

Probably the most unique thing about Mustard is that it serves Bengali cuisine alongside its French food. Sounds crazy but the combination works surprisingly well together. Go here for their French salads and intricately plated mains.

It’s all about celebrating French culture at Le15 Cafe which has some of the best macarons in the country.

What we love at the cafe though, is their Croque Madame which is a cheesy sandwich served with an egg sunny-side up.
