At home, we’re used to being served in restaurants (not just wine/beer, spirits & mixers as well) without a problem (without our parents) as the attitude is very relaxed despite the legal age being 18. we are wondering in light of this if the attitude is similar in Paris, as our experience of other parts of Europe is that it’s quite relaxed as well, but we don’t want to run into an issue if we order it and they won’t serve us. Anyone who lives in Paris or has visited and has experience drinking in restaurants there without parents, advice would be much appreciated !! :)
