Le Victory, Paris a Low-Key Brasserie in an Upscale Area

dessert victoryOne of the more difficult tasks when strolling along Avenue Champs Élysées is to find a low-key restaurant with decent food at reasonable prices. Le Victory, Paris is a local brasserie and bar just off the famous retail mecca. While a far reach from Michelin-star cuisine, Le Victory serves comfort food in a traditional French atmosphere.

When the bill arrived we were thrilled our impromptu meal for four cost about 25€ per person including the wine. So, the next time you find yourself underwhelmed by the tacky cafés along Paris’ infamous avenue, pop into Le Victory for a bit of cheer and some French comfort food.

      HI there Megan Claire,

      It’s a great spot with a good price point. Hard to find in Paris and especially near the CE.

      Glad you liked it. Thanks for taking the time to chime in.

      Keep reading and sharing with friends,

    This would be an oasis. I’ve often struggled to find somewhere I want to eat near the Champs-Elysees (that doesn’t require a second mortgage). Thanks for the tip.
