OKA restaurant, Paris

Paris Restaurant guide

With its valet parking at both lunchtime and in the evening, its ‘remarkable table’ plaque and its concept of French-Brazilian fusion food, OKA is trying very hard to convince you that it’s a decidedly chic affair.

However, look beyond this pomp and you’ll actually find some really extraordinary food. Here’s our review.

Roger La Grenouille restaurant, Paris

Paris Restaurant guide

Ask anyone to name an iconic element of French cuisine, and a lot of people will say either onion soup, snails or frogs legs. Not far from our hotels, Roger La Grenouille is specialised in the latter (as you may have gathered from their name).

Now an institution on the Left Bank, their ultra-kitsch interior design featuring hundreds of frogs has just had a makeover, and we went down to see if the food had been given a 21st century update too.

Here’s our review!

Paris Restaurant guide

We loved La Crèmerie and Au Bon Saint Pourçain – now David Lanher is back with Racines des Prés, a new restaurant close to our hotels.

And once again, out meal was extremely memorable…

Les Fauves restaurant, Paris

Paris Restaurant guide

In what used to be an unremarkable little bistro just next to the Tour Montparnasse, the restaurant Les Fauves opened in March 2017 with a completely redesigned space, serving inventive food from a menu overflowing with hashtags.

As it’s only a few minutes away from our hotels, we decided to go down for lunch, and it turned out to be a very enjoyable experience indeed!

Here’s our review.

Maison Marie restaurant in Paris

Paris Restaurant guide

The name Marie seems to be trending right now!

After our visit to the table de Marie-Jeanne last month, we now visit the neighbouring Maison Marie, a new brasserie in a swish space whose smart interior and homemade food drew us in.

But there were some surprises in store, and not all of them were good… Read our review for the details!

Rotisserie La Table de Marie-Jeanne

Paris Restaurant guide

In an ironic turn of events, the space that formerly housed a vegan restaurant has now been turned into a smart rotisserie!

Practically opposite the restaurant Cosi, a longstanding fixture in the Pantheon neighbourhood, now stands La Table de Marie-Jeanne, and the two restaurants have the same owner, although not the same menu. This new venue proposes a short selection of rotisserie-cooked meats, but is also pretty clever with its vegetables.

Carnivores and vegetarians alike will no doubt enjoy. Read our review to see what’s on offer.

The restaurant of the
Maison de l’Amérique Latine

Paris Restaurant guide

After 40 years more or less hidden inside the Maison de l’Amérique Latine (literally, House of Latin America), the building’s restaurant was given a makeover last summer, thanks to designer Pablo Reinoso and chef Thierry Vaissière has remained in charge of the food.

The new look changes everything, finally giving the wonderful food suitable surroundings. Here’s our review.

La Table du Flow restaurant, Paris

Paris Restaurant guide

Le Flow is a boat moored on the Left Bank of the Seine just next to the Alexandre III bridge, easily the most beautiful in the city (and our favourite spot for watching the Bastille Day fireworks display).

The venue’s launch this summer was pushed back when the Seine rose to surprising levels (in the middle of June!) but everything’s fine now, and the boat now houses a successful concert space which can also serve as a nightclub, a rooftop terrace and a smart restaurant.

We wanted to make sure that the food wasn’t just an afterthought. As it happens, we had one of our best meals of the year!

Here’s our review.

Passerini restaurant, Paris

Passerini has just won the prize for Best Chef 2017 in this year’s Fooding® Awards, and as the restaurant is quick to reach from our hotels (10 minutes in a taxi), we just had to go down and sample their wonders…

Here’s our review.
