We were lucky with a waiter who spoke great English, as we don't speak more than a few words of French. Our Lonely Planet dictionary got us through 85% of the all French menu, but the waiter was able to translate the few bits we...More

So let me thorugh this out there first. If you read my restaurant reviews I think the lowest ranking I have given is very good. And the reason for this is that we use Tripadvisor ( ranked 7) and Lonely Planet ( recommended) so we...More
