Au bon Laboureur – Bray-sur-Seine – France Visit Review: 14,2

This establishment has existed for more than 100 years (it is becoming rare!) and now managed by Gilles and Lorène Monti.    Menu a little bit complex to read because the most exciting dishes (the most elaborate) are not at the beginning. Indeed, the House, despite its peasant name, is partially oriented towards fish and seafood and offers an excellent choice of [...]

Le Barachois – Prince Maurice – Mauritius Visit Review:

Total disapointment !

I was very happy to return to the Barachois, amazing restaurant of Prince Maurice, one of the most beautiful hotels in Mauritius. Already last year I had suffered from their ultra-restrictive policy that makes them refuse reservations even when the restaurant is empty. It is a marketing concept of making scarcity that defends itself but is frustrating for those who suffer [...]

Le Pescatore – Trou aux Biches – Mauritius Visit Review: 12,6

What the cost!

How to leave a restaurant having eaten well but with a bitter taste in the mouth? Just go to Le Pescatore at Trou aux Biches in Mauritius.    Very nice elegant and cosy ambiance, well decorated.    Similarly, the menu is physically qualitative. There was a significant expense in a good printer.    The bread is very good. The [...]

La vieille rouge – Grand Baie – Mauritius Visit Review: 13,2

Beau plateau

I will take the risk of getting angry with 99% of the restaurants in Mauritius but we will discuss the subject of lobster, fresh and local. You must know that you will very rarely get fresh and that it can often not be Mauritian. This concerns all restaurants in Mauritius, not specifically "La vieille rouge". Only the restaurants of luxury hotels, for reasons of price and supply chain, [...]

Le Bénitier – Pereybere – Mauritius Visit Review: 12

Sympathetic but not more

I think I have almost ate in all the main restaurants of Pereybere! Le Bénitier is facing the beach and is part of the classic range of small local restaurants.     Nothing very original or exceptional on the menu. But honest and correct food.    The best part is probably the chicken accras, very well cooked, with a donut dough [...]

Mamma Mia – Grand Baie – Mauritius Visit Review: 11,6

Light Please!

If I listened to my friend Paul-Emmanuel, I would put a 20/20 and write a dithyrambic article on Mamma Mia, one of his Mauritian canteens. But as my best half sometimes says, I'm not always someone cool ...Do not expect a shootdown flame because we eat pretty well in this Italian restaurant in Grand BaIE. It has the first benefit of having existed for years. This proves that the [...]

Off the square – Clifden – Eire Visit Review: 14

Show off the square!

Last stop of our stay in Clifden and probably the best value for money with the pleasure of tasting a lobster straight out of the fishpond and some Irish oysters! More fleshy than the delicate French tables. Even appearing a little heretic, I will admit that I like. I have a soft spot for Utah Beach or Horse's Feet (very big french oysters). It is not necessarily  "gastronomy" but it [...]

Juste – Paris – France Visit Review: 10,6

Caliméro

Calimero because I was not going to make a basic pun about the name of the restaurant. But I think after reading my article, the owners will say: it's an injustice!It is ranked high on Trip Advisor, though, as usual, some rate a fast food establishment as a real restaurant. The concept is funny : you select your dishes on a stall of fishmonger. The food is precooked and packaged in [...]

L’Essentiel – Deauville – France Visit Review: 15,4

I've got gut ! That's Essentiel !

Visit that is just prior obtaining the Michelin star. But don't be fooled, I have not changed a line! After the exhaustive list of TripAdvisor, friends are my second selection of restaurants. You, dear reader, you also have my blog, and I thank you for following me! Being the last stop of our stay in Deauville, normal that I take care of the selection. No great originality as [...]

Pavillon Augustine – Trouville – France Visit Review: 14

Face to pavilions

This is exactly the type of disconcerting establishment. Because on the outside appearance, we rather want to escape this modern pavilion with large windows, which looks more like the tourist trap than the honest table. But on the advice of a friend, I pushed the door. Even if Antigone II Gonatas said: "Keep me from my friends, my enemies, I take care of it", sometimes you have to [...]
