Pizza Marzano – Paris (Saint Michel)

If you want to have good pizza while enjoying the views of the Seine and Notre Dame, then Pizza Marzano is the place to go. The waitress was really friendly and the service was great.

Leon de Bruxelles – Paris (Republique)

A good Belgian restaurant in the middle of Paris. The moules marinieres, mussels in a white wine sauce, were cooked perfectly. The chunky chips were great too but what made them even tastier was the thick good quality mayonnaise.

Le Village Ronsard – Paris (Maubert-Mutualite)

A cafe that had a pub like atmosphere. The waiters were friendly and greeted us with a smile. It had a wide screen TV showing the news to keep you occupied. The cafe creme (latte) was very nice. Saw some of the hot food that other customers were having and it looked of good quality….

Bistro Romain – Paris (Republique)

A nice and friendly restaurant which had seasonal additions to its menu. This month was the ravioli month so we decided that they should be sampled. The first time at this restaurant, we had the mint, basil, tomato and ricotta tortellini which tasted really good. We also had the grilled vegetables (aubergine, red pepper and courgette)…

Cafe Francois – Paris (Bastille)

This cafe felt very light, airy and spacious. There seemed to be a few additional customers here though, the pigeons and sparrows that had flown in through the open windows and doors. There was no shortage of seating. Even though we had ordered cafe cremes (latte), the coffee was given in pots with the jug…

Cocoa Cafe – Paris (Republique)

We popped into this cafe just for coffee. The waiter was friendly and he was happy even when we said that we just wanted drinks and no food. The cafe creme (latte) was creamy and frothy. We didn’t feel rushed at this cafe and the decor was pretty cool with its purple and chocolate coloured…

Pizza Pino – Paris (Republique)

A busy pizza restaurant which uses good quality ingredients for their pizzas. We were seated for quite a while before the waiter came over to take our order. Saying that, the service was good after the order was taken. The waiter didn’t seem too impressed when we said that we just wanted to share one…

Coquelicot – Paris (Abbesses)

A short walk away from the Sacre-Coeur is this rustic bistro with its stone tiled floor and quirky decor. The staff were very friendly and the service was good. The breads and pastries looked nice but we settled for coffee this time round. We were given a small bowl, not a cup, of cafe lait. That…

L’institut – Paris (Cardinal Lemoine)

Just south of the River Seine is this nice bistro. Head towards the back of the bistro and it opens out into a bigger area filled with comfy chairs and sofas. Perfect for a rest and a bite to eat! The hot chocolate was good but not too rich. The jug of hot milk meant that we…

Chez Imogene Creperie – Paris (Oberkampf)

When we asked a local where we could go for good crepes, they told us about this place and said we wouldn’t be disappointed. How right they were! It was a little creperie hidden away on one of the side streets. The tables were close together but we didn’t mind that. There was something so…

La Pattaca – Paris (Grands Boulevards)

This was an average Italian restaurant. If you were seated away from the window, then it felt a little too dark inside this restaurant. The bread that was given did not taste very fresh. We ordered minestrone soup and tortellini alla panna. When I asked the waiter if the minestrone soup was vegetarian, he agreed…
