French-Romanian relations are bilateral foreign relations between France and Romania. Diplomatic relations between the two countries date back to 1880, when mutual legations were opened, although contacts between France and Romania's precursor states stretch into the Middle Ages.[1]

Currently France has an embassy in Bucharest and three honorary consulates (in Craiova, Constanța and Brașov).[2] Romania has an embassy in Paris, three consulates-general (in Lyon, Marseille and Strasbourg) and four honorary consulates (in Nantes, Bordeaux, Nice and Brest).[3]

Both countries are full members of NATO and of the European Union. Since 1993, Romania is a member in the Francophonie.
