Compared to coffee or brunch spots — which easily draw hipsters and caffeine connoisseurs alike — French restaurants aren’t as abundant in Kuala Lumpur. But that doesn’t mean our city is lacking in quality options. If you know where to look, KL plays host to a number of French fancies ranging from fine dining restaurants to casual Parisian-style bistros.

The French are heralded for their cooking techniques and excellent produce, so much so that they are synonymous with the idea of gastronomy. Luckily for us, chefs here have gone the extra mile to source French produce the likes of escargots, duck breast, foie gras and oysters, as well as even farming their own vegetables for maximum freshness.

Here are our top 5 French restaurants, which are the crème de la crème of Kuala Lumpur.
