Very traditional French dishes: Restaurant Au Bourguignon Du Marais (21. June 2020)

The Marais is a hip neighbourhood with a lot of small streets and little cafés which make the experience of walking through there very enjoyable. Finding a restaurant which is open the first weekend after the lift of the lockdown on the other hand isn’t entirely easy! But, I manged. As a starter, I went […]

A nice 1 Michelin star experience but nothing overly amazing: Restaurant Lucas Carton (20. June 2020)

A nice 1 Michelin star experience but nothing overly amazing: Restaurant Lucas Carton (20. June 2020)

Finding a Michelin-starred restaurant which is open on the first weekend after the lift of the lockdown turned out to be incredibly difficult! I mean, it took me about 30 homepages to find something which would be open! In any case, after some research and searching, I found the ‘Lucas Carton’ which is a 1 […]

Not so easy to find a decent place for breakfast: Restaurant Le Compas (20. June 2020)

Not so easy to find a decent place for breakfast: Restaurant Le Compas (20. June 2020)

Finding a typical nice French café for breakfast on a Saturday morning is not as trivial as I had initially thought. The Le Compas then turned out to be quite nice and I went for the “extra breakfast (double espresso, fresh orange juice, farmhouse bread, butter, jam, mixed omelette)” (EUR 14.00) which is a good […]

When the restaurants are open again in Paris after COVID-19: Restaurant Le Grand Colbert (19. June 2020)

Given the restaurants in France only just opened up, it wasn’t entirely easy to find a place for dinner but the Le Grand Colbert was among the few which were open again. The interior of the place is a typical nice French brassiere in terms of design. The tables are tiny and there isn’t much […]

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

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 […]
