Des gars dans la cuisine   Paris Digest from France   16:12   July 5, 2014

A few affordable Paris restaurants are great. They combine affordable prices (set menu around 15 euros at lunch time) and gastronomic French cuisine. Des gars dans la cuisine is one ot them. Located close to the Picasso Museum in Le Marais (see Paris map), Des gars dans la cuisine serves fresh and innovative French food in a lovely room. Service is pleasant. A welcome stop in Le Marais, a trendy Paris district with few quality restaurants.

Le Quinze restaurant in Paris   Paris Digest from France   19:46   May 30, 2014

In our constant search for affordable gastronomic restaurants in Paris, we went today to Le Quinze, a trendy restaurant run by Lionel Fleury, a promizing young french cook. On the plus side, good service, quiet room, nice and modern decor, tasty and innovative dishes, excellent Bordeaux white wine (Ch√Ęteau Pierrail). On the minus side, the portions were relatively small. The meal costed us 114 euros for two. Web site. Location on Paris map

Paris Picasso Museum reopening is being delayed until September 2014. In the meantime, rush to Centre Pompidou and its many Picasso paintings or go to Picasso Museum Antibes on the French Riviera.

Versailles Palace   Peter from Australia   16:59   April 29, 2014

Eight Aussies have been to Versailles Palace today to see this wonderful part of French history.
It was disgraceful the way tourists are treated having to line for tickets for one and a half hours and then a further two hours in line to enter the palace. There was only three people selling tickets, and for a tourist destination that has five million tourists annually, this is a national disgrace.

Vagenende   Paris Digest from France   19:28   April 26, 2014

Paris is well known for its brasseries, these casual restaurants serving seafood, choucroute and traditional French dishes. One of them, Vagenende, is a real treasure. Located 142, Boulevard Saint Germain on Paris left bank, it is famous for its beautiful Art Deco interior. Privately owned, Vagenende serves good food and has affordable set menus at lunch and dinner which is rare in Paris. We ate a choucroute and drunk half a liter of beer for 27.80 euros. A very reasonable price for a good meal in central Paris. Vagenende is a restaurant we recommend if you happen to be on the left bank. Web site.
