If you go to Paris (or any city) there are limited restaurants serving 'traditional French' food unless you can afford to go to very expensive places.

It is just sushi, kabab, Chinese, sushi, mc dos, sushi....and more sushi.

If you move to France, you have to learn how to cook.

For me, going to a French restaurant is an ordeal. I have not been to one for years.

Strange, I’ve enjoyed eating out in Tours. Same with the place in the wood we last went to for mysty’s birthday, friendly service and good food.

and one day when we collect our state pension or/and when my big birthday arrives our treat is going to be Manoir as I would love to know what difference a Michelin Star makes to the food........same family Stephanie manages O Gayot. Her brother Franck has the Michelin star and is at Manoir. You will often see him at the Bagnoles market on a Saturday morning choosing his veggies. Mrs A.

The food looks nice :D That is about it.

Don't get me started about gastronomic food. :D

You pay a ridiculous amount of money to walk out of a restaurant hungry.

Over the years France has taught us that we don't need a massive plate of food (which you don't get in France) to feel satisfied :D Mrs A.

I'm the cook in house. I don't want to be the cook but it is my function in life. I have to deal with it.

What makes me smile is that when we have French people around (mostly family) it is like they have never tasted good food before.

It is like they have never eaten before. They finish everything.

And they are all reasonably 'higher class type people' as well. They have all eaten in Michelin star restaurants.

Everyone is happy when I cook. 8-)

They feel fed.
