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.

Many are advertised as being Faye Mayzon - whoever she is??? :P :P :P

Eating out in France is miles better than in the UK because can take our dog. Except for stupid McDos of course who are rubbish.
Not everyone wants a smelly dog in a resto
At least it would be meat that had been hung :roll: Do they wait 'til the tail drops off? :innocent:

O Gayot our haunt once a month at lunchtime on a Friday for the fish dish...........

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.
