Paris Le Bouchon Parisien - Honest Restaurant Review

Great dining option near the Eiffel Tower, just a quick 2-minute walk away. I searched for the best restaurant in the vicinity using Google and found the following information. (Le Bouchon Parisien has a rating of 9.3/10. The Fork users have rated it as follows: Food Quality: 9.3/10; Service: 9.4/10; Atmosphere: 9.1).

The service was top-notch, with a very friendly and attentive staff. No matter if you favour a comfortable terrace or an elegant interior, you are guaranteed to enjoy a fantastic dining experience.

The ambiance is lovely and relaxing, perfect for a meal in the heart of Paris. It's a good option if you're in the area, but be prepared for the cost and choose your dishes wisely.

The prices for beverages can be quite high, particularly for drinks. I found it astonishing that a 50 centiliter beer cost 12 euros for just one drink.

While the beef may not be the best quality, our French fries are a standout - perfectly crispy and delicious.

The food is decent overall, catering more towards tourists. The mussels are fresh and the wine sauce is creamy and flavourful.

One dish to avoid is the ribeye, as it was dry, burnt, and chewy. Not recommended.

My husband did not find pleasure in his beef dishes, so I suggested that he speak to the waiter after the first bite and request a different dish. However, he chose not to do so!

The food quality is mediocre, the prices are steep, and it is unusual for waiters to request tips in Paris.

The total cost of the meals was 82 euros, which included 2 meals and 2 beers. This price allowed us to dine at various places and enjoy delicious food.

Although my husband did not particularly enjoy his beef dishes, he did not complain about it. Therefore, I have no further comments on the matter.
I gave a restaurant honest review a rating of 6 out of 10. It is better than average, which is quite positive! In general, it is satisfactory, except for one beef dish that falls below the expected quality.

A brief stroll, only a 2-minute walk away from our hotel, Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel.

My husband enjoys teaching couples how to pose for pictures. It brings him joy to see them happy. Naturally, they are eager to assist us in return for the photographs.

We have a preference for video over photo. Return to the hotel, unwind, and savour the breath-taking views of the Eiffel Tower.

The check-in time at the Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel hotel begins at 04:00 PM. We inquired about the possibility of an early check-in, and fortunately, the receptionist agreed without any additional fees.

Enjoy!

Paris Hotel with Eiffel Tower Views - Pullman Hotel Room Tour


We used an Uber to get to our hotel and got there early. The reception was really friendly and allowed us to check in early and check out late at 12pm. Check out is at 11am and check in at 3pm. We spent £550 for a night at this hotel in April 2024, which included breakfast. By signing up for membership, we got a discount rate that is non-refundable, and it also covered breakfast in the restaurant.

The price varies depending on the season, daily rate, and availability. However, it's worth noting that the current price has increased to £1252 per night [DELUXE ROOM, 1 king size bed, 1 sofa bed, balcony with view of Eiffel Tower] during the summer months of July to August 2024.

I was surprised by the doubling of the price, possibly due to July being the month of the Paris Olympics with high tourist numbers and almost full bookings.

We had an amazing experience at the hotel. The rooms were so cozy, and the hotel's proximity to the Eiffel Tower was just perfect. The breakfast buffet was top-notch, with delicious French croissants and cakes that were simply divine. The service was impeccable, with friendly waitstaff and a high level of attention to detail. I must say a big thank you for the amazing service provided.

Fruits in Paris are quite pricey, but they appear to be of high quality. When I tried a large mango in Paris for the first time, it cost me around £15. It was incredibly juicy with a natural sweetness and a mango flavor. While it wasn't the best mango I've ever had, it was still very good. One interesting thing to note is that the peel had an unusual floral scent, which added a unique but pleasant twist to its taste.

A helpful tip: the final light show ends at 11pm, and darkness doesn't set in until around 10pm in Paris. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with breath-taking balcony views of the Eiffel Tower - it felt like a dream; such a beautiful and relaxing experience. Paris is a destination we have visited numerous times. With each visit, my husband and I become more romantic. We couldn't stop taking pictures and videos.

Having a forever love is a beautiful thing, and it's great that we're confident in the relationship we've built. 

Our visit was truly unforgettable, thanks to everything being just right. We highly recommend it!

Breakfast Buffet at Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel Restaurant

Enjoy our buffet breakfast and one of the best brunches in Paris at FRAME, the restaurant featuring a terrace with stunning views of the Eiffel Tower. I would rate this 9 out of 10. The views are absolutely breath-taking, so I highly recommend reserving a room with a view of the Eiffel Tower.

It's definitely a worthwhile, with rates varying from April to May 2024 at £550 to £600 per night, depending on the season and availability. However, it's important to note that the current price has risen to £1252 for a single night. A helpful hint: the final light show ends at 11pm, and darkness doesn't fall in Paris until around 10pm.

The hotel's location is incredibly central to all the famous sights in Paris. We had a seamless check-in experience at the Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel hotel. Despite arriving at 10:30 am, earlier than expected, we were pleasantly surprised to find that our room was already prepared for us. The Pullman Paris Tour Eiffel hotel is truly a gem with its ideal location for sightseeing. The staff members were incredibly friendly and accommodating, making us feel welcome throughout our stay. The breakfast served in the hotel restaurant was of excellent quality and reasonably priced considering the area. It was a true joy and worth every penny. The ambiance was exquisite, the staff were incredibly professional, the tableware was stunning, and the food itself was simply perfect. If you love coffee, feel free to order a hot cappuccino. It's absolutely delicious, and you can even ask for more than two hot drinks if you'd like :) If you're looking for a leisurely breakfast with all the trimmings, definitely worth it. I am a big fan of authentic honey, and this restaurant offers genuine honey for its customers. I thoroughly enjoyed a small bowl of it, which made me feel great and also helped to soothe my throat. The orange juice was freshly squeezed, and all the hot food items including croissants were prepared right on the spot. I spent over an hour savouring it. With its central location, we found it convenient to visit most attractions, and there was even a metro station just a short walk away. We highly recommend this breakfast buffet and will definitely choose to stay here on our next visit to Paris!

Parisian Breakfast with a view of the Louvre at Le Café Marly

The sun is shining brightly and the sky is clear, although there is a chance of unexpected rain. It's important to be aware of some Uber drivers who might not drop you off right in front of the Louvre. Instead, they may choose a more convenient spot for themselves, unless there are customers waiting to be picked up. I aim to walk less, as we have a full week ahead in Paris. Save your energy and make the most of it.

Don't forget to make a reservation on the website!

This is an ideal spot to begin your journey before heading to the Louvre. The vistas were absolutely breath-taking. We couldn't find a single thing to complain about, especially with the magnificent Louvre glass pyramid right in front of us.

The breath-taking views will leave you speechless, especially with the magnificent Louvre glass pyramid right in front of you.

The view from the tables is truly exceptional at this café. It's something everyone should experience and dream about.

The hot chocolate was not hot enough, the orange juice was sour, and the pastries were dry and hard. Café de Flora is definitely a better option. On the other hand, at Restaurant Le Drugstore, the pain au chocolate was freshly baked, crispy on the outside, fluffy on the inside, and the chocolate melted in your mouth. The hot drinks were also served at the perfect temperature. Unfortunately, the Parisian breakfast we had was not up to par..
I only took one bite and a sip for taste testing, and it definitely wasn't worth the money.

The omelette was the only thing that was hot and decent. I wished I had toast and butter instead of croissants. However, it seemed like everyone was too busy, including my server who ignored me like he couldn't see me.

It's definitely a tourist trap café! I was only there for the views and to experience it, that's all.

Despite my disappointment, I would still consider returning if I'm in the mood, perhaps trying out different options like desserts, coffee, or wine on my next visit to the Louvre.

These observations were made from the bathroom. Compared to numerous other places in Paris, this location is somewhat overhyped. It's definitely a café that attracts tourists.

Wishing everyone a fantastic weekend! Remember to stay positive no matter how challenging the situation may be. Taking care of your mind is crucial for maintaining good health :)

Since we first met in 2002, we've had our signature pose. Despite facing challenges and not having children, we still love each other. Let's take things easy but not easy, and focus on making our relationship stronger.

Nonetheless, it's a lovely café and worth a visit. Just be aware that the road in front of the café can be quite noisy due to ongoing renovations. But don't let that stop you from capturing a great photo!

We love using Uber because it offers a user-friendly app, guarantees safety, and provides a reliable service for a comfortable and secure trip to our destination.

Café Restaurant Review @ Louvre CAFE DE LA REGENCE, Paris

 
📍 Le Café de la Régence
167 Rue Saint-Honoré, Paris, France
I would give it a 9 out of 10 rating.
A charming restaurant situated just a 5 minute walk to Louvre museum. A flavourful sea bream filet with mustard sauce. I prefer sitting near windows in restaurants as it feels less confined. Cheers! Drinking beers makes you happier and healthier. It's good value compared to only 1 beer for 12 euros in many restaurants we tried.

The prices were reasonable for central Paris and it was definitely not a tourist trap. We savoured a delightful lunch featuring impeccably prepared duck confit - crispy on the outside, tender on the inside, This video displays my true self, without any alterations or cosmetics. I enhance my beauty by dressing well and feeling happy without makeup :) The crème brûlée dessert was exquisite - delicate and perfectly balanced in flavour. The staff were amiable and the overall atmosphere was fantastic. Highly recommended!!! We had two beers with our meal which totalled 60.50 euros. It's customary to leave a tip for good service. Afterwards, we took a brief stroll to the Louvre Museum Le Café Marly Restaurant but unfortunately the Wi-Fi wasn't functioning properly at that time so since there was no need for reservations we decided to head back to our hotel to rest.

If you still have some energy left, it's only a 15-minute walk to visit the renowned opera house - Palais Garnier, Pl. de l'Opéra, 75009 Paris (open from 10am-5pm) and just a quick 5-minute walk away is Galeries Lafayette Haussmann, 40 Bd Haussmann, 75009 Paris.

The Most Beautiful Restaurant in Paris 😍📍Le Train Bleu



Dining at 9/10
📍Le Train Bleu 2 - Michelin Star restaurant
Location: Gare de Lyon, Pl. Louis Armand hall 1, 75012 Paris, France

The most stunning restaurant in Paris 🤩 Le train bleu is situated within Gare de Lyon in Paris 🚂. I have never seen such an exquisite interior in a dining establishment 😲 It felt like being in a museum 🖼 I've been wanting to dine here for a long time, and it's definitely worth a visit, not just because of its appearance in the Mr. Bean holiday movie.

The uber driver may suggest stopping at a train station, but it might not be the right direction. Keep an eye on your Uber journey maps and don't hesitate to refuse if you feel it's not the correct place. Leave a 1-star rating and feedback in uber app to warn others.

Le Train Bleu is located inside Gare De Lyon in Paris and has two Michelin stars. It offers one of the most luxurious train journeys in the world and is a must-visit when in Paris. I had an amazing experience at this restaurant. We booked lunch in advance, and the restaurant itself was beautiful. Upon arriving early, we decided to take a walk the beauty entrance and were pleasantly surprised to hear the staff singing opera. My husband and I joined in for the fun and we enjoyed a lovely moment together.

Experience a beautiful moment by dressing elegantly and dining in enchanting restaurants that exude the ambiance of a majestic castle or the grandeur of a museum. Rest assured, the Le Train Bleu Michelin restaurant offers an English menu with a wide variety of options to choose from, including starters, fish dishes, vegetarian options, meats, salads and cheeses, desserts, as well as coffee, tea, beers, and wine.

The waiters are proficient in English, exhibiting great politeness and patience when responding to any inquisitive queries you may have. I have made the acquaintance of a delightful ladies who're exceptionally sweet.

As enthusiasts of beer, we are eager to try a sizable 50cl beverage - which is equivalent to 500ml - while exploring the city of Paris. The waiters at this establishment are all professionally trained, exhibiting their expertise in providing exceptional service. Beer options, Affligem €12 Heineken €11. You can enjoy a complimentary appetizer called - Amuses Bouches, without charge.

Complimentary amenities, including bread, cutlery, glasses, and serviettes, are commonly provided in restaurants throughout France. Furthermore, certain establishments offer appetizers at the commencement of the meal without additional charge. The roast leg of local lamb served from the carving trolley was delicious, as well as Michel Roastang's potato gratin dauphinois for 47 euros, Guinea Fowl Casserole for 39 euros, Alaska for 18 euros.

As a lover of good food, I was also very pleased with the quality of the dishes 😋 The waiters even prepare them right in front of you 🔥 what an amazing experience 👍 The roasted lamb was surprisingly succulent and delectable, without a hint of dryness, while the sauce perfectly complemented its flavour. Additionally, the dish featured a delectable side of cheese and butter potatoes.
The Guinea Fowl Casserole exceeded all expectations, offering a succulent and delightful taste that struck a perfect balance between savoury and sweet. Reminiscent of homemade, freshly-cooked meals, this dish left a lasting impression that was impossible not to savour and enjoy. Additionally, the lamb dish featured a delectable side of cheese and butter potatoes.

We encountered a pleasant young couple near our left next table who entertained us with their attempts to guess my husband's age - they started at 30 years off and then kept guessing until they got it right. We are supporting each other with photography and taking turns capturing memories, and conversed like long-time friends, which was quite surprising considering I am not typically a very social person.

As the waiter served our table, I regretfully realized that I had missed the spectacle of Alaska in flames. Nonetheless, the dessert he presented to us was a delight - a refreshing combination of creamy vanilla ice cream topped with a tropical sauce and sprinkled with tart pomegranate seeds.

I am pleased to see my husband taking on the role of a helpful photographer, offering his assistance to capture memories during the first and second difference guests at nearby table. Additionally, his photographs skills have been well-received by them. In fact, one gentleman was so appreciative of the photographs my husband captured that he expressed a desire to revisit those cherished.

We ended up spending three hours there without feeling rushed; the service was excellent. The interior was stunning, food amazing, staff friendly and helpful - all worth every penny. I have compiled a guide to the most charming cafes in Paris, discover them all through my link in bio 😍 and as a food concierge, feel free to comment below for personalized restaurant recommendations in Paris.

🇫🇷 Beautiful [Paris Café] with a view of Arc de Triomphe [ENG SUB•FULL] Paris Trip 🇫🇷 ✈️

 

Dining at 8/10 - Restaurant LE Drugstore
Close to Arc de Triomphe, Restaurant LE Drugstore
📍Location: 133 Av. des Champs-Élysées, 75008 Paris, France

I always feel happy when I see a blue sky in my videos or pictures. We used the uber app to travel from our hotel to the Arc de Triomphe and we had an incredible view of it. If you are looking to enjoy the view of the Arc de Triomphe. One of the most wanted Paris restaurants with a view, this restaurant is perfect for any traveller looking to enjoy a delicious breakfast before exploring the rest of the city. If you visit, ask for a table by the corner window. I really enjoyed my time there. Sitting outside and enjoying the view of the arc de triomphe created a very pleasant atmosphere. The prices are okay for this type of casual establishment, that seems normal in Paris. Also you're paying for the view and fortunately, the foods is good too. The waiter spoke English and everything on the menu was translated as well. The food was excellent and the staff were friendly. I was worried that this place might be a tourist trap due to its location, but I was pleasantly surprised! I highly recommend this restaurant. I loved their chocolate croissant (pain au chocolate). It's incredibly fluffy and flaky with melted chocolate inside. This is definitely the best croissant I've ever had in Paris so far!!! At only 3 euros each, they are worth every penny. The cappuccino didn't have any fancy designs on top which wasn't impressive, but it was hot enough which I liked and had a strong espresso taste similar to two shots of flat white coffee. The omelette was perfectly cooked with delicious cheesy eggs that melted in your mouth; fluffy, soft and tasty at 12 euros – definitely worth it! The pancake with maple syrup cost 8 euros; they were fluffy on the inside yet crispy on the outside but slightly too buttery – just make sure you pour enough maple syrup over them as it makes all difference; if you eat one piece alone then it’s perfect but having another piece may be too much buttery flavour-wise. The bread served with butter is complimentary and quite good too; fresh tasting with rich milky-cheesy flavours – truly unique! How I wish I could buy some back home to UK. Overall an amazing experience - we highly recommend visiting this restaurant while in Paris! A beautiful panorama of Avenue des Champs Élysée along with great service quality & food offerings await you here. I can’t wait to come back again soon! After finishing breakfast we took a short walk down Champs-Élysées capturing stunning views of Arc de Triomphe through photographs. Don’t miss out on capturing those special memories as they help create lasting keepsakes. I can't dance. I don't know a step. but I want to dance to put away my shyness. It can be a wonderful way to express yourself and have fun! People often take pictures while helping others for various reasons. One reason being documenting acts of kindness & sharing them inspires & encourages more such deeds.

Video part of 7:34, this was my first experience with an Uber (black) driver who initially drove past us. It is important to remember not to rush and to cancel the ride on your phone if you are unhappy with the service. Also, consider declining to give a low rating before entering the car.

We opted for Uber again for faster convenience getting back to our hotel before checking out. This time around we weren’t rushed allowing us enjoy & relax during our holiday stay in Paris. Hope these insights prove helpful. Thanks for watching and reading this. Subscribe & show your support with a thumbs up 👍
