Les Fernandes restaurant, Paris

Paris Restaurant guide

We heard about Les Fernandes thanks to the restaurant booking website The Fork which currently gives 30% off the à la carte menu for certain bookings (generally early evening), which is a pretty interesting offer.

We even liked the name of the restaurant: Les Fernandes – the girly bistrot that boys love. Interesting… And what about the food?

Huguette restaurant, Paris

Paris Restaurant guide

It’s was while walking around the rue de Buci (well worth exploring) not far from our hotels that we came across Huguette, bistro de la mer.

Actually, it was the huge terrace that really caught our eye – perfect for Parisian people-watching, even in winter, thanks to the copious number of heaters.

Fancy some fish & chips outdoors in December, in a t-shirt? Here’s our review.

Papy aux Fourneaux restaurant, Paris

Paris Restaurant guide

After a successful round of crowdfunding, youngsters Julien and Pierre have founded Papy aux Fourneaux (which means something like Grandad in the kitchen), a new kind of restaurant where the products are both locally sourced and responsibly cultivated, and the dishes on offer are for sharing, just like a meal at home!

The interior design of the restaurant is pretty surprising, but what about the food? Check out our review…

Les Climats restaurant, Paris

Paris Restaurant guide

In a listed building just behind the Musée d’Orsay (i.e. close to our hotels) you’ll find Les Climats, a restaurant that gained its first Michelin star in 2015.

Intrigued by their huge wine cellar (displayed as a feature in the restaurant) and the superb space, we went down for a very special lunch. Here’s our review!

The Breizh Café Odéon Restaurant

Paris Restaurant guide

Faithful readers of the blog since 2010 (!) may remember that we’ve talked about the Breizh Café before – their original location in the Marais.

Now, they’ve opened a branch at Odéon, super close to our hotels, the perfect excuse to go back for some more inventive crepes and see whether the level is still as high.

Here’s our review.

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!

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!
