As far as food goes in Paris, well, you really can't go wrong. Even your humble road-side creperie is capable of whipping up a cheesy, pillow of buttery delight that will leave you in a heavenly trance for days. Bistrot Lorette however, is a place worth visiting and raving about, standing out from the crowd of superb eateries for value, quality, service and ambience. We knew we'd struck gold on our arrival - this little Parisian restaurant in the 9th arrondissement was already full of Parisians. Eat where the locals eat had always been my travel motto! We were lucky enough to be squeezed into a two-seater and politely and kindly welcomed and given menus (although great food is almost a given, manners and good service are not necessarily commonplace in Paris). The options were varied and interesting, with an emphasis on traditional cooking methods and using locally sourced produce. Our meal (which arrived in good time) was utterly divine. A baked cheese and aubergine ratatouille on a bed of fresh, lightly dressed leaves, a melt-in-your-mouth lamb fillet with glazed vegetables and seabass on a saffron risotto followed by a grande and glorious finale of pistachio torte with morello cherry sauce and gingerbread icecream. All this was accompanied by a local vin rouge, romantic low lighting and a the enchanting background 'music' of French chatter. Don't miss out on a visit to this Parisian gem - authentically French and a meal you cannot forget!
