The typical French service – unfriendly as hell: Restaurant Le Village Ronsard (6. May 2018)

To finish off the day, we decided to try another restaurant recommended in ‘Where Chefs Eat‘ but unfortunately, the ones close were either closed or even closed for good. So, we ended up in a relatively touristic place with surprisingly many locals. I went for the “Gratinée à l’oignon” (EUR 9.90) which was a typical […]

First time I’ve tried frog legs: Restaurant Aux Lyonnais (5. May 2018)

My absolutely favourite book when travelling is ‘Where Chefs Eat‘ which is basically the perfect tourist guide for any city which is mentioned in there. Especially, when you are considering visiting the restaurants mentioned in there as they are absolutely lovely and recommended by Michelin starred chefs (but the restaurants recommended are not necessarily Michelin […]

Nice little restaurant for a wine break: Restaurant A. Noste (5. May 2018)

Nice little restaurant for a wine break: Restaurant A. Noste (5. May 2018)

I didn’t have anything to eat at the Restaurant A. Noste but only 0,25l of Rioja Crianza DOC (EUR 11.00) and a bottle of sparkling water (EUR 3.50) but I saw what others ate and frankly speaking, it looked absolutely nice. The place itself is quite lovely and the service is friendly and attentive. Even […]

Average breakfast with a nice little balcony: Club Lounge @ Le Méridien Étoile (5. May 2018)

The Club Lounge in the Le Méridien Étoile is definitely nothing special but at least it offers quite a decent breakfast menu. Starting with some elements of salad like cucumbers, tomatoes and actual salad as well as about four different types of cold cuts … … freshly pressed juices … … different types of bread […]

One of the reasons why you would want to visit Paris: Wine Bar L’Ivress Sentier (4. May 2018)

It is more than 7 years ago since I have been to Paris and somehow I have never been able to get to like the city properly. This evening though managed to turn it around a bit. The “large apéro plate” with a variety of cheeses, paté, tomatoes, cornichons, cold cuts, butter and honey … […]

10. April 2012: Breakfast Restaurant @Le Méridien Etoile

The buffet in the Le Méridien Etoile is nice – there are a lot of different things to choose from: fresh fruit, pan cakes, bacon, sausages, eggs, various fruit juices, cereals and various kinds of bread. Even a selection of miso soup and an omlett station are there. Unfortunately, the miso soup corner was empty […]

9. April 2012: Restaurant Le Sud

We were welcomed with a little present from the kitchen – olives and almonds. The olives were good, the almonds were like regular almonds but were somehow surprising as a welcome from the kitchen also because they were so plainly just almonds. After placing the order, we were served bread – and it was delicious. […]

9. April 2012: W Lounge @W Opera Hotel

The W in Paris just opened recently – and therefore, I had to go and try a drink in the W Lounge. I have never heard of the drink before but the “Sweet Tooth Batida” (EUR 17.00) somehow sounded good to me. The drink was strong and tasty. Together with the drinks we got served […]
