    Paris Things to Do

    Last visit May 2016 Although my favorite art museum in Paris (and perhaps the world) is the Musee d'Orsay, a visit to the Louvre, even for a short bit, is a must see in Paris. The Louvre is a very, very large place and it is quite useful to sit down with the map and figure out where you are going. The massive building now housing the art...

    Paris Restaurants

    I had promised myself on my last trip to Paris that I would treat myself to a beer at the Les Deux Magots in Saint-Germain-des-Prés and raise a toast to the ghosts of Simone de Beavoir, Jean-Paul Sartres, Picasso, Hemingway and the large cast of other literary notables who have frequented this watering hole in times gone past. The cafe is...

    4 out of 5 stars

    Rome Restaurants

    The Odd Room is an easy going restaurant, with good food and friendly waiters who even did their best to explain the menu to me in English. Plain furniture, wooden tables and bar stools. I sat close to the front door, but there are also benches at the back for couples in search of a little more privacy. I had a three course menu: bruschettone, some...

    Barcelona Things to Do

    A lot of the current construction work is happening inside so its a bit of a building site, but in a way it is interesting to be able to watch a bit of it happening. The columns inside are another example of Gaudi being influenced by nature as they are designed like trees with a long trunk and then thick branches at the top. My favourite thing...

  • Les Quinze Nits

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Barcelona Restaurants

    March 2014. Very surly waiter and, at times, quite rude. Extremely miserable Maître d who also, I might add, had the endearing habit of rolling his eyes whenever you asked for anything! We had to ask for a glass in order to drink our beer – twice! – then once the glasses eventually arrived, we had to ask for a clean one!. Again, had to ask for...

    3 out of 5 stars

    Venice Restaurants

    If Harry's Bar is on your list of things to do in Venice, cross it off. For 33 euros you get 2 Bellini's. (Prosecco & Peach) served in a plain tumbler, which didn't taste any different to any other Bellini served anywhere else in Venice for around 6 Euros a glass. Save your money, pop your head in the door for a look and then go somewhere else for...

    Athens Things to Do

    Athens abounds with hills, and many are so barren they surge upwards and unpopulated out of the cityscape. Of all these hills, the standout is Mount Lycabettus, rising like a limestone fist from below. Its base is think with pine forest, and at its summit stands the whitewashed chapel of Saint George. The twin peaks at the top of Mount Lycabettus...

    There are many souvlaki/kebab places around Monastiraki square and they are always packed with people, mostly tourists of course because of the location (4’ walk from Acropolis main entrance. The main problem is that these eateries focus on these customers and not locals that will return if they are satisfied with food and service. But a friend...

    Copenhagen Things to Do

    Nyhavn (New Harbour) is undoubtedly Copenhagen's most picturesque corner: a line of colourful houses, higgledy-piggledy built next to some quais where only vintage ships are allowed to moor. Moreover, there are plenty of restaurants and bars so that the area is not for nothing called Copenhagen's longest bar. Nyhavn was built from 1671 to 1673 to...

    RIZ Raz We find this hotel in our guide book and decide to give it a try. It's a vegetable only buffet.....for about $20.00 . it located just off the pedestrian street and about 20 minute or less from our hotel. It's pretty full when we arrive at about 7pm ...must be packed during summer. It turns out to be pretty good. Lots to choose from...

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Dublin Restaurants

    Good old cool Bad Ass transformed in the autumn 2011. The refurbishment gone wrong and originality lost. With that unfortunately the food didn't improve. Used to be a customer in the past and enjoyed the atmosphere and food. However after trying the new-old I will not come back. Any other pub will give you better food and better atmosphere. There...

    So the story is this place had the original Sacher Torte cake, and somehow it got into the hands of the Sacher hotel and bakery. Who know's ?!?!? The place is an old world traditional cafe. As for the cake here ... it was awful ... extremely dry, and the chocolate had no flavoring. The coffee was good, I will admit that. We were there around...

    Florence Restaurants

    I first visited Florence in 2006 and ate at Za/'Za because, according to my guidebook, this trattoria was one of the best for value. And I have to say I agreed. I always passed it on my way back to my hotel, and every time I did so it was full of both visitors and (more importantly) Italians. The latter is my point-of-judgement; if the locals use...

  • U Fleku

    4 out of 5 stars

    Prague Restaurants

    This historic beer hall is featured in many tour guides as one of Prague's top attractions. Perhaps for that reason I was a bit afraid of walking into a tourist trap, but U Fleku is actually much more than that! Dating back to 1499, it is believed to be the city's oldest brewery. They brew only one type of beer, a flavourful dark lager, which...

    This place is gorgeous. Quite expensive. But for western european tourists...quite a steal. Just imagine this place in Paris or Vienna. Because of a lack of time...I went in and asked for takeaway. People recommend the Foie Gras pate here. And I have to second that. Simply sublime. Because I was taking it out...I was charged 2200ft for about...

    Gamla Stan is the historic heart of Stockholm. It’s made up of three islands - Helgeandsholmen, Riddarholmen and Stadsholmen - but it’s Stadsholmen, the largest, that people usually think of when they talk about Gamla Stan. Gamla Stan means ‘Old Town’ and there’s everything here that you would expect from an Old Town - narrow streets, historical...

    I took my girlfriend there last night and the place looked very nice, but the chicken dish I ordered tasted like it was made 2 days ago!! I almost broke my plate when I was trying to cut it in eatable pieces. When the bill came and I mentioned the waiter about it, all he said was: ´I don´t make the food here´ and did not offer to compensate it in...

    Designated as a World Heritage site in the 1980s and located next to the Thames and Tower Bridge, it is home to the British "crown jewels" and has plenty of history attached to it.

    After a rude awakening at the nearby Indian restaurant I sought a meal at Leicester Square's Wagamama. The restaurant was very busy but I managed to get a seat and had a lovely meal. I ordered a Katsui curry (with sweet potato, aubergine and butternut squash wrapped in panko breadcrumbs covered in curry) with rice and salad. For dessert I had the...
