My first official post! Thanks for helping us...my husband and I....first time in Paris and we have done some research as to what restaurants to eat at...however...the list is long and our days are limited.
We arrive on a Sunday morning and leave on a Thursday around 11am.
When we arrive on Sunday we are going to do a hop on/hop off tour to get acquainted with the city. We are staying a little north of Montparnasse and slightly west of the St. Germaine de Pres area. We need a lunch and a Dinner suggestion for Sunday.
Monday we're probably going to head up north to the flea marks over near clingancourt and then make our way around Montmarte...Sacre Coer...etc.....While in this area...any recommendations for Lunch? Later that afternoon we have tentative plans to try to go to the Arc de Triomphe area/Champs Elysee and then finally onto the Bateaux-Mouches seine river dinner cruise.
--Do you recommend the Seine River Cruise for dinner or is our money better spent elsewhere in this area?
Tuesday we are most likely going to go to the Eiffle Tower then Musee D'Orsay and walk around the surrounding areas. We have tentative reservations for Moulin Rouge that night (not for dinner...just the show)...but we need to fill in a dinner this day too
Wednesday (our last day) we plan to head to Versailles early in the morning and then come back around lunch time. We were contemplating having a big lunch before heading to the Lourvre for the remainder of the day. Here, we thought that maybe it would be a good idea to eat at a pricier restaurant since Lunch is usually less expensive? Later that night we thought we would head over to Buddha Bar for a drink and check out the scene.
We leave the next morning for London.
I am going to list the restaurants I have compiled...it is lengthy...so any advice you have (or day modifications) would be greatly appreciated. Since this is our first time, we are relying solely on your opinons.
Chez L'ami Jean
Le Relais de L'entrecote
Le Fontaine de Mars
Restaurant du Palais royal
La Rotunde Montparnasse
Le Petit Troquet
Au Bon Acceuil
Le Ambassadeurs (lunch probably expensive)
Tour D'argent (lunch probably)
Georges (atop Pompidou)
Comptoir du Relais
Auberge du Champ de Mars
Au Pied de couchon
Bouef Sur le toit
Le Petit Zinc
We are looking for moderate priced dinners and good values for lunch. We value the food more than the ambiance...however...the ambiance is always a nice thing if available.
also, how do you make reservations...it is expensive to call France to make a reservation...is it possible to do it another way?
