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 👍

MOVIE Café de Flore Paris|Breakfast on the terrace of a long-established café - A Parisian Coffee Shop Review ✍️

Eating at 8/10 - Café de Flore
📍Address: Café de Flore, Boulevard Saint Germain, Paris, France
Closest Landmark: Église de Saint-Germain-des-Prés
Nearest Station: Saint-Germain-des-Prés (Métro)

Café de Flore appeared in the 1963 film The Fire Within. The café is mentioned in the 1975 song "Et mon père" by Nicolas Peyrac. Amanda Lear filmed her music video "Égal" in Café de Flore in 1981.

We woke up at 6am this morning and decided to skip breakfast at the hotel. Instead, we used the Uber app to get a ride to Café de Flore.

When we arrived, the café opened at 7:30am and we chose to sit outside on the terrace to enjoy the city views and take some photos. The waiter promptly took our order. It's a well-known establishment that is not a tourist trap, doesn't cater to tourists, but the drinks are quite expensive compared to the food.

A must-visit! I absolutely adored this café. The pastries were delightful, and the staff was incredibly accommodating. It's a beautiful café with ample outdoor seating, providing a wonderful way to soak in the Parisian atmosphere.

Café de Flore does not accept reservations but is open from 7:30am until 1:00 am, so it's best to visit during off-peak hours to avoid long lines.

This is an famous place to experience the classic Parisian bistro ambiance. It's a historically significant restaurant with a long-standing reputation. Café de Flore has been frequented by famous artists, thinkers, and actors for over 150 years including Hemingway and Picasso.

For breakfast at Café de Flore, you can't go wrong with a croissant dipped in hot chocolate or an omelette with ham and cheese.

The hot chocolate was good but not as hot as I would have liked it. The cappuccino was hotter than the hot chocolate, it's rich and delicious, and not too sweet!

The omelette with side salad reminded of my home-cooked meals which was perfect.
The croissant was fresh with a beautiful texture and not too buttery, which I really enjoyed.

After finishing our breakfast, we requested the bill from our waiter:
1 cappuccino - €8
1 hot chocolate with cream - €11.50
1 croissant - €3.50
1 omelette ham and cheese - €15

The restroom had lovely decorations and was exceptionally tidy. We will certainly return also plan to visit the next café of Les Deux Magots on our upcoming trips to Paris.

I used Uber again to call for a ride back to our hotel. This trip is part of our relaxing holiday in Paris where we are taking things slow and enjoying all that this beautiful city has to offer.

Thank you for watching! Please turn on the subtitle. Hope you enjoy the video! If you found this review helpful, please give it a thumbs up to encourage me to continue writing honest restaurant reviews :)

Honest Restaurant Reviews Blog ✍️

Day 1

The café is conveniently situated within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower and boasts an attractive exterior. Our visit was in the afternoon, and we were promptly provided with menus in English. Ordering in English was effortless, thanks to the friendly owner who spoke fluent English. That's great to hear that he recommended some signature dishes for our first visited. Trying popular dishes at a café near the Eiffel tower for the first time can be a wonderful way to experience the best of what they have to offer and get a taste of specialties. We both opted for different menu items, and I thoroughly enjoyed my excellent coffee. The beautiful art on top added to the experience, especially when paired with cheese, avocados, poached eggs and a side salad from the toast menu. Focusing on fewer dishes allows for a greater emphasis on ensuring each one is of the freshest and best quality possible. This approach may help you discover hidden gems that offer both excellent food and reasonable prices in the city. It's all about knowing where to look and being mindful of your preferences. It can be challenging to find a balance between quality and price when it comes to dining in Paris. It's always a pleasant experience when the staff are not only efficient but also friendly and accommodating. It's commendable that they took the time to make sure you had a positive interaction, even during a busy period. Their attitude likely made your visit more enjoyable and memorable. Overall, we were impressed by the professionalism and high quality of the owner, staff, coffee, and dishes - it felt almost perfect and too good to be true. However, having better air circulation to avoid exposure to cooking odours from the open kitchen it will be much more perfect 10/10. In conclusion, we highly recommend this café in Paris and look forward to returning on our next trip. when you walk out from the o coffee café, opposite is a shop selling fresh fruits, it sounds like a perfect combination for a quick and healthy snacks.

Day 2

We opted to have our morning meal at O Coffee instead of the hotel's breakfast. We enjoy our afternoon tea time there, but in the morning, it was very crowded with a long line outside. So we went to the flower shop and returned half an hour later. I ordered their famous breakfast menu with a side salad, which was incredibly fresh and perfect. This time, I requested bacon on top, which had a pork jerky-like texture and an unbelievable barbecue aroma from the kitchen.

The food and service were impeccable - truly unmatched anywhere else. My husband and I are coffee enthusiasts who brew our own coffee at home because we can't find good coffee locally. However, we thoroughly enjoyed cappuccino and a flat white is an espresso drink made with a double shot of espresso and steamed milk at O Coffee.

The free-range egg yolks were delicious with the cheesy sauce and avocados toast - truly amazing. It is incredibly gratifying to slice into the soft-boiled eggs. The yolks are cooked just right, with the whites perfectly firm. The sight of the golden yolks spilling out and their rich, creamy taste is simply delightful.

We love the taste of their coffee as well as the artistic designs on top, so beautiful and delicious. We appreciate quality over quantity when it comes to food choices.

I read about O Coffee's famous and freshly baked banana bread online so I decided to try it out - the banana flavour was incredible! It may be slightly sweet for some people but its unique toasted texture made it unforgettable.

The staff is friendly and speaks good English; they even kindly recorded a video for us during their busy period.
The culinary skills and coffee techniques are exceptional here - this is one café in Paris that I genuinely adore. It's definitely worth revisiting on my next trip to Paris; it's truly a hidden gem. The prices are reasonable for such high-quality coffee and foods, especially in Paris. The owner has a great personality and works tirelessly non-stop compared to other owners who simply oversee operations without getting involved themselves. Very impressed by the educated and honesty of the café owner.

Although we've visited Paris five times, we've never had the pleasure of dining at Le Jules Verne, the Michelin-starred restaurant situated atop the Eiffel Tower.

Certainly won't be our last.  Although the cost may not be negligible, the quality and experience are undoubtedly worth every penny. We'll definitely make a point to return. It's a truly enchanting experience, making for a perfect afternoon in this magical setting.

It was a delectable Eiffel Tower shaped dark chocolate. Sadly, we discovered two were missing from our luggage and we suspect they were stolen.

The beauty of the desserts we were able to enjoy for free, it brought us immense joy and happiness.

The unforgettable experience was made possible by the combination of excellent food, exceptional service, an incredible location, and delightful company. 

The service, in particular, was remarkable as the friendly and professional staff were highly attentive to any need. Without a doubt, this experience has checked off a major item on my bucket list, and I would relish the chance to do it again for another year. 

It was an unforgettable experience that will stay with me for a long time. Not only can you capture memories, but you can also become part of the photography team at a renowned restaurant?

Whether you're a professional photographer or simply enjoy documenting life's precious moments. Don't miss out on capturing those special memories and let it help to create lasting keepsakes. People often take pictures when helping others for a few reasons. One reason is to document the good deed and share it with others as a way to inspire and encourage more acts of kindness. 

The waiters can discreetly lead patrons to the toilet without any confusion or embarrassment. The intelligent cleaner stops when a person exits the toilet and starts cleaning when someone enters, guaranteeing a thorough clean for every user. 
Say goodbye to unclean and unhygienic toilets with our efficient and user-friendly cleaner. 

Seriously speaking, we were expecting a little bit of a tourist trap given its location but it was not at all!!! It was a true fine dining experience with excellent food and super service. The seats, views and ambience was amazing. After the meal one can go down to the 2nd level and come back to Jules Verne to take their private elevator down. It’s certainly an experience one should do in Paris.

The world famous French bistro that's been serving one dish for over 60 years. It is a well-known steakhouse in Paris. We had heard a lot about this restaurant before visiting Paris, so we decided to give it a try. I had high expectations due to the restaurant's reputation and the numerous recommendations we found on the internet. We added it to our list of must-visit spots for great steak frites in Paris. Unfortunately, there is usually a long line. We arrived 15 minutes early to avoid the queue before the restaurant opened at 6:45 pm, but ended up entering at 9 pm after waiting for about 2 hours. Is it really worth the wait? The line outside the restaurant is quite long, but there are people smoking and vaping. I find it unpleasant to be around smokers in queues and have had to walk away many times. My husband is stuck in line and can't escape the smell either. Smoking in queues should be prohibited when near other people, as the smoke spreads and causes discomfort. Second-hand smoke can irritate the eyes, nose, throat, and lungs of non-smokers nearby. Smokers should consider the impact of their actions on others who do not want to inhale second-hand smoke and show respect for their well-being. The starter was an ordinary green salad with walnut sprinkles on top. They also charged an extra 4 euros for each additional salad. France served some sort of baguette as well in every restaurant table. Followed by steak fries with second helpings. It felt like they were not rushing us through our meal and so they ask for the next dessert but we seem like the accommodate the next guests waiting in line. I left feeling somewhat disappointed given my high expectations. Therefore, I don't think it's worth waiting in such a long queue since they don't take reservations. There must be better places in Paris where you can enjoy entrecote with fries for around the same price. The sauce on the steak was good, it tasted like mild coconut and buttery satay sauce. I requested my steak to be cooked 90% well done because I don't eat raw meat and was worried about its tenderness or toughness - they served us twice to keep our food warm. The meat was tender but not ribeye; more like braised beef or sirloin - everything tasted okay but not exceptional. The tables were stuck close together and there was constant jostling from waitstaff serving neighbouring tables. It was extremely noisy and overall not a pleasant dining experience - this place seems more geared towards tourists than providing an authentic French dining atmosphere. The food is decent but nothing special; while the meat is good, unfortunately, the fries did not seem fresh - they appeared to be frozen store-bought rather than freshly prepared potatoes which I expected from a restaurant of this calibre. However, service was very fast and our waitress was friendly. We spent a total of €78.50 for two individuals, which included beers but did not cover desserts. The cost was €29 per person for steak and chips with salad included, plus an additional €4 per person. Heineken was priced at €6 and Carlsberg at €6.50. I would recommend this restaurant if you're looking for creating a lively and bustling atmosphere without any other options available – perhaps as an experience with loved ones – then give this place a try! I hope you find this review helpful. If you have a fondness for Paris, enjoy steak and chips, appreciate the Eiffel Tower, and find this review helpful, please give it a thumbs up to encourage me to write more honest restaurant reviews :)

Honest Review
We are heading to Bouillon Chartier after stopping by the Franprix supermarket.

Is it worth waiting in line for Bouillon Chartier? Do we recommend it?
Absolutely!

We don't usually wait in line for restaurants and had never experienced it before, but we decided to give it a try during our Paris food tour this time. It was definitely an interesting experience to queue outside a famous restaurant and enjoy good food at a good price.

I also discovered that I can have patience when needed. If waiting isn't your style, try visiting for lunch instead. The key is to arrive early to avoid the rush - arriving between 5 and 6pm should work well.

We arrived at 7:30pm and waited in line for over an hour because the French prefer dining after 7pm. This is something important to note when visiting Paris! While waiting in line, pay attention to a man who walks around signalling different numbers with his fingers - he groups people into parties of different sizes so they can be seated more efficiently once inside.

Bouillon Chartier is well-known for its long history dating back to 1896, its classic Parisian atmosphere, and its menu of traditional French dishes, all offered at reasonable prices. I found this place recommended as a restaurant that serves authentic French food at great prices through a Google search.

The beauty of the restaurant will make you feel like you've been transported back to the Belle Epoque! There's usually a long line for dinner, but it's worth the wait.

The dining room is large with many tables accommodating six people, so multiple parties may be seated together at one table. The menu offers numerous options; we chose oven-baked sea bass, duck confit with potato green salad, avocado shrimp cocktail, along with beer and soft drinks - all reasonably priced by Paris standards. If this is your first time in Paris and you want to experience traditional French cuisine on an everyday basis then le Bouillon Chartier would be an ideal starting point.

The ordering process seemed faster using this method. My next table Parisian mentioned that their vegetable soup wasn't good; therefore sticking with their signature dishes might be best. The waiters use your table paper as your order sheet which adds some fun interaction during the meal. At the end of your meal they tabulate your bill directly on the table. If there are only two of you then expect sharing a four-seater table where you may meet nice and pleasant peoples.

It's important to be mindful of camera distance and posing, as being too close or having the wrong pose can distort facial features and make you appear larger in close-up shots. This is a common occurrence.

My new Parisian friends at the next table kindly recorded a video for us and complimented us on being such a cute couple.

Served authentic classic French dishes. It tastes like a master chef home cooked with all the fresh ingredients, not overly salt or over seasoning which is best. After our meal we opted not to order dessert since we noticed there were still many people waiting outside. We paid our bill while taking some photos of the beautiful interior before leaving.

We called an Uber which took us back to our hotel where we rested. Hopefully you enjoyed watching this video. If you liked having subtitles, 👍 Thumbs Up!

Husband cooks for wife👨🏻‍🍳 Seafood Rice Porridge once in a week, once in the month!!!

One of the variations I enjoy most is seafood congee, which includes tasty additions such as lobster, crab, mussels, whelks and scallops. 

Since moving here, I have been searching for the nearest fresh market where I can find lobster and crab. Sometimes they also have fresh whelks, mussels and scallops available. 

The environment is lovely, with friendly and helpful staff providing very good service. The seafood is always fresh and reasonably priced. They offer the opportunity to purchase fresher items that you can't find in regular stores. 

My husband cleans, cuts and prepares the lobster and crab along with other seafood. 

We sprinkle sea salt and corn flour on them before air-frying at high heat for about 10 minutes - a healthier option compared to deep frying. Any leftovers can be stored in an airtight bag in the freezer for later use. 

My husband has a comforting recipe for Seafood Congee that's simple but time-consuming to prepare. After making a large pot of congee, we add deep-fried lobster and crabs along with cooked whelks, raw mussels and scallops until everything is done cooking - when you taste the real umami flavour it's ready! To enhance the flavours even more, we top it with spring onions, coriander and fried shallots before adding white pepper, sea salt, sesame oil and light soy sauce. This dish not only provides comfort but also essential nutrients; although it takes some preparation time to make this home-cooked meal worth enjoying quality time with loved ones over a satisfying meal. 

I don't usually take videos while cooking but this time I was in the mood so I recorded my husband preparing it as well as us eating it - normally I just can't wait to eat without taking pictures or videos because it's absolutely my favourite dish that's good for health too! It shows love when someone invests their time into cooking good food, bringing us good health and happiness :)
