Only in France – a place that only sells foie gras: Foie Gras @ Les Halles De Lyon (Paul Bocuse) (25. March 2017)

I have seen a lot of different things when it comes to food and places to eat at – there is still a lot to go, rest assured. However, a store which is fully specialized in ‘foie gras’ and sells nothing but that (with a very few exceptions) is something you can only find in […]

A great place to rest: Executive Lounge @ Lyon Marriott Hotel Cité Internationale (25. March 2017)

The Executive Lounge in the Lyon Marriott Hotel Cité Internationale is located on the 8th floor and you gain access by either booking a room with Executive Lounge access or by tier status. The lounge is attended, i.e. at some point, a lady walks up to you to ask for the room number. The breakfast […]

A truly local Lyonnaise experience: Comptoir Chez Chabert – Le Petit Chabert (24. March 2017)

If you want to experience a true Lyonnaise food experience, then you should definitely visit one of these small restaurants which are very typical for Lyon. I went for the ‘Le Petit Chabert’ which is a tiny place where you’re seated at tiny tables with tiny chairs and tiny wine glasses. Everything is small and […]

Old run-down breakfast place with non-attentive service: Le Colonial Café @ Le Méridien Nice (19. February 2017)

Old run-down breakfast place with non-attentive service: Le Colonial Café @ Le Méridien Nice (19. February 2017)

I stayed at the Le Méridien Nice in 2014 and I was not entirely persuaded of the hotel. And well, this time, it started way better as I got upgraded to the Panoramic Junior Suite which is a corner suite and you have a view all over the coast of Nice – which is quite […]

Nice finding in a non-touristic area – French speaking only: Restaurant Le Millésime (18. February 2017)

Nice finding in a non-touristic area – French speaking only: Restaurant Le Millésime (18. February 2017)

The Le Millésime is not really a place you would randomly walk into as a tourist as it is not really located in any ‘touristy’ area. However, thanks to TripAdvisor I got aware of the restaurant and booked a table in advance. Highly recommended to do so, especially, given that the restaurant was full this […]

A well-deserved Michelin star in Nice: Restaurant JAN (18. February 2017)

It is three years ago since I have last paid the JAN a visit. Since, the restaurant has received it’s first Michelin star – and I think I can say, it deserves it. While last time the service was not really satisfying, it was much much better this visit. I went for the “Menu Midi” […]

12. October 2014: Brasserie Les Ponchettes

The Brassiere Les Ponchettes is located in the market area of Nice – and the place – while mainly visisted by locals shopping on a Sunday is definitely nothing special. It is absolutely perfect to do some people watching but besides that there is nothing too appealing about it. The waiter is friendly but quite […]

12. October 2014: Restaurant Le Colonial Café @ Hotel Le Méridien Nice

The breakfast at the Le Colonial Café is a bit of a disappointment. The selection is somehow limited and you do not find anything special at the buffet which is definitely a pity. But to remain fair – all the main elements for a proper continental breakfast can be found. The room itself is somewhat […]
