L'express bleu ? any good?

Thank you all for your help. I think I get the message- no point in going to L'Express as it doesn't have the beautiful setting of upstairs. I will cross the road as advised. Thank you everyone

I may have more time, but have to get from Gare du nord and who knows how long that will take. It seems to me L'Express Bleu is my best bet. I won't expect too much!

Thanks - as I am there it seems to make sense. Just wanted to know that it wasn't terrible. if I have time to kill, I will take a look at L'Europeen.

I have just over an hour - to grab something to eat , Before I catch my train at gare du lyon. I know the train bleu has had mixed reviews, but wondered if L'express was o.k for a quick lunch.Or anywhere else very close ?

London Lunch ~£20-25?

look at top table.The Ramsey group are doing special deals at the moment. Had a lovely lunch at Hibiscus. A little far out perhaps but I love Odettes Primrose Hill

Provence or Cote d'Azur in March?

Do go to la Merenda - booking only by person, cash only. That said it really is a delight. Very friendly.Anyone know the name of the restaurant run by the grandmother and her daughter? its in vieux nice aswell. NY times wrote a great review.which has pride of place in the window.Food not wonderful but if you find it you will have so much fun.Like eating at your grannys! get there early.

suprise birthday trip

you are so right, I went to hotel costes for a drink earlier this year - not the most welcoming place. Will try Drouant . One more question if I may - Angelinas for breakfast?

suprise birthday trip

I have booked a 3 day trip to Paris on 29th Jan for my husband and myself ( its his birthday) our three teenage daughters want to suprise him ,and turn up on the sat night at the restaurant. I would like suggestions please.We love Le bisro paul bert and chez paul.Any others similar? Also any ideas for a grown up friday Dinner for two. I had thought chez julien as costes have done it up, and its such a lovely location. however haven't been for seventeen years! The other was Drouant. haven't been. Price not so much an issue for the friday, however my husband does not like pretentious stuffy places.
