Marbella – DA BRUNO a Casa ristorante


On the 24th of April 2017, for dinner we went to one of my dad’s most favourite restaurant when we come to Marbella, Spain. Which is called ”DA BRUNO ristorante”. It has a variety of different choices with Spanish and Italian food. The atmosphere is pleasant and not too noisy. The staff are friendly, speak english and are easy to understand. I suggest if you are thinking of coming to this restaurant during the summer to book because you won’t otherwise get a table and would probably have to wait a long time until you get one. To start with I ordered ”Prawns Pil Pil” which is a spanish dish meaning spicy prawns and they are really good and one of my favourite dishes when coming to this restaurant. It’s also a well known dish in Spain. Then as main course I went for the ”Ravioli with Pumpkin” and with a butter sage sauce. This was really tasty and basically I always order these starters and main courses when I come here.  I will definitely come back (Always have so far). Most people eat here quite late if you like to have atmosphere of more people around. Also you can sit outside or inside depending how the weather is. There are many other Da Bruno’s in Marbella but the one we went to is linked down below. I would rate this a 5 out of 5

Marbella – PAN & MERMELADA


On the 24th of April 2017, we had some lunch just 10 minutes from our hotel. To a place which is called Pan & Mermelada. I have been to this place almost every year since I was little as I have been to Marbella a lot and the food is very good but this time it was owned by different people to what the owners were last year which was a disappointment. The atmosphere is always nice because you are sat outside (or you can sit inside) when its nice weather and sat next to a walking way where you can watch people go by. Also you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner here. We came to have lunch around 12PM but there lunch menu didn’t start till 1:30PM so we had to take food off the Breakfast menu but that was not a problem for me as they had American pancakes on the menu which made me really happy because I love having pancakes for breakfast or brunch. In the end I ordered to drink an Avocado which had some other fruits&veg mixed in, it was presented nicely as it came in a mason jar which is quite trendy at the moment which I thought was very nice. With my drink I ordered American Pancakes with chocolate chip. It tasted quite nice but different to my expectations because they were far too big and I wasn’t able to finish it all. The new staff were reasonable and friendly.  I would come again to try the lunch menu as I saw online they had some things which caught my eye but the Lunch menu is quite late which is a shame. I would rate this a 4 out of 5

Paris – Miss Ko


On the 16th of April 2017, after going up the Arc de Triomphe. We went for some dinner at Miss Ko. I recommend to book or reserve as it gets very busy and just to make sure you have a table I would book online which is very simple and easy to do, only its in french so make sure you are able to understand with what you are doing. we came in at 7:45PM and it was absolutely packed. We were given a table near the entrance which was very nice as you could watch people go by and walking in and out. The staff were very friendly and helpful explaining everything. The interior was fascinating and different to what you would see in a restaurant because they made it look like you were in Tokyo with having all these symbols and bright light colours. I am a massive fan of Asian food so this was really good and tasted like good quality. The atmosphere was pleasant and not too noisy with background music playing which I liked. I have been here 3x now and never have had a bad meal or bad experience. As starter I shared some dishes with my family and we had some sushi (which I absolutely love) also we had some edamame, Gyzos and a seaweed salad. As main course we had are own dishes and I had a noodle salad with chicken which tasted really good. Then as last as a dessert I took a funny and different type of thing which were mini doughnuts with 3 special surprise chocolate sauces. I didn’t expect it to be that good and loved the white sauces which was given. If you want a fun night definitely come here. I will always come back here when I am over in Paris. It’s also in a very good location as its just round the corner from the Champs-Élyseés and next to the Louis Vuitton store. I would rate this a 5 out of 5

Paris – Ladurée


On the 16th of April 2017, after a day of looking around the Louvre. We decided to go and have something sweet to eat at Ladurée as a late afternoon snack. When we got there, there was a pretty long line but some how we only waited for 10 minutes until we got a table and the table we had been given was pretty nice as we could watch people walk and stand by. The atmosphere was very pleasant and not too noisy. The place at Ladurée on the Champs-Élysées is huge theres around 3 floors where you can sit and eat and also there is a take out, which means you can buy chocolate or macaroons to take out with you. While we were there I ordered an ice coffee but it was quite strong so I kindly asked for some extra cold milk, also I ordered 4 mini macaroons to go with the ice coffee which was very nice as you can choose a variety of your own flavours which you want. It was really good and I recommend if you want something sweet or typical french to try to definitely come to this place as the service is very good even when they are absolutely full in the whole building. They don’t only serve sweet dishes here but also breakfast and lunch if you are interested. I would rate this a 5 out of 5

Paris – Le Café Marly

On the 16th April 2017, We had an early breakfast around 10:30AM and because we had a reservation booked we were able to get a table, there was actually no need for a reservation because there was barely anyone there but normally this place is busier in the summer and for lunch as you have an amazing view of facing the Louvre while eating. I am sure they also serve dinner which is nice to see in the dark and having a nice atmosphere of people constantly walking by from different corners and areas. The waiters and staff were friendly and some could speak better english than others. Because we had the Louvre booked at 11:20AM and we thought we were going to be late because we had to be there 20 minutes before hand. We told one of the waiters if the food could come a bit quicker and they were very polite and sorted this out for us. I ordered Toast with 2 different types of jams and a pot of honey, this was very nice and I enjoyed a lot. Along with the food I ordered a Iced Coffee which was really good and I wanted another one but didn’t have time for it. I would come again but the choice for breakfast was very small and I didn’t have much to pick from. Maybe for lunch it might be a different story. I would rate this a 4 out of 5 because of the lack of choice there was on the menu for breakfast.

Paris – L’Avenue

On the 15th of April 2017, after a whole day of looking around Paris and the Catacombs. We went to have dinner at L’avenue, which is a very popular and well known restaurant to go to because of all the celebrities that have been and you can spot now and then like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West also the rest of the Kardashian family and Jenners, Rihanna, Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and many other celebrities, most of them you might spot during Paris Fashion Week. Luckily I had reserved a table and we got in because while walking through to eat on the second floor, the restaurant was completely full when we arrived around 8PM. I suggest to book if you want to eat here for Lunch or Dinner. The staff were very efficient and friendly when bringing you to your table. The food is really good and a big range of choices for Starters and Main Courses. I ordered sliced avocado as starter and a steak with french fries as main course. Only I wouldn’t touch the candles or move them as they go off with moving it the slightest, which happened twice to our table. I would definitely come back again when around in Paris. The location is perfect as it’s not too far from Champs-Élysées and it’s between a lot of expensive brands shopping street. I would rate this a 5 out of 5

Paris – YOOM Dim Sum

On the 15th of April 2017, we went to Galeries Lafayette which is a massive department store with food, clothes and drinks. You could basically spend a whole 2 days in there. After looking around a bit we went to the 7th floor and found a place to eat called ”YOOM Dim Sum”. It wasn’t that busy but that was because we arrived around 12PM which for most people is not lunch time yet and so there was only a few people. We were able to choose our own table and so we chose the only table that was near the window and had a stunning view over Paris with the Opera and Eiffel Tower which we were able to see. The staff were friendly and didn’t take long for our food and drinks to come. We had ordered a few dim sums to share and to drink I ordered a Jasmine Tea. The food tasted really good, while we were sitting there it was getting very busy and by the time we left the place was completely full. As dessert a dish which caught my eye was a famous french inspired dumpling which was a chocolate steamed dumpling and it tasted amazing!!! as chocolate liquid poured out. I would definitely recommend this place if you are in or near Galaries Lafayette. I would rate this a 5 out of 5

Paris – Le Coq

On the 13th of April 2017, After we visited the Palace of Versailles, we drove back to Paris and it was already almost dinner time, We decided to go and eat near Trocadero which is where you can get the best view and best pictures to take of the Tour Le Eiffel (Eiffel Tower). We ate at a place called Le Coq which was on the corner near the roundabout, we ate here last time we came to Paris in the Summer for lunch and remembered the food was pretty good so this time we decided to go and eat here for dinner. We decided to sit outside because it wasn’t that cold and if you were cold there were heaters above. The only problem you will have if you are a non smoker is that most people who sit outside are smokers and if you don’t like eating while having someone smoking next to you then maybe this wouldn’t be a great idea. The staff are friendly and speak good english. We got some free bread and butter to eat and I had ordered as a started the Shrimp Dumplings which were very good as I am obsessed with Dumplings, as main course I ordered a Caesar Salad which was good but too big and I could barely finish it. But of course I had to have a dessert because one of them caught my eye which I have never seen before. It was called ”Notre Paris-Brest” meaning ”Our Paris-Brest”. I was not sure what it was but I wanted to try it and it was a sort of sugar bread with cream in it, I also ordered a Fresh mint tea but when they brought it, there was only a tea bag which I do not call fresh mint tea but then I opened the silver cup which the water was in and realised there was fresh mint tea in it, but still was not sure why they had brought a tea bag. Overall It was a good meal and I would come again and the atmosphere was nice, also when you sit outside you see people walking by which is nice to see. I would rate it a 5 out of 5

Paris – Angelina

On the 14th of April 2017, I visited the Palace of Versailles, Which is a must see if you are near Paris because it’s only a 30 minute drive from out of Paris, While spending the day from 12PM till about 5:50PM. We in between stopped for some lunch in the Palace of Versailles, I saw a sign for Angelina Paris and remembered it was a famous attraction like Ladurée to most people. So we decided to stop here, Angelina Paris is famous for there hot chocolates, I ordered a Angelina Afternoon Tea, which consisted of Sandwiches, Macaroons and some cakes, and a drink to your choice but only out of the hot drinks section. As I wanted to have an Iced Coffee I ordered that separate to the afternoon tea. The food was really good and the hot chocolate was amazing but it was such pure chocolate you could hardly drink it. As I am a big fan of these type of places I would definitely come back. I would rate this a 5 out of 5 as it just felt like a dream how good this was.

Paris – Le Scheffer

On the 13th of April 2017, When arriving in Paris for Easter, We were not sure were to eat and find a typical french restaurant for dinner, our hotel receptionist suggested us a restaurant called ”Le Scheffer”. We decided to go and try this place which was near ”Trocadero” but a little further down the road. When we got there we thought it was shut or shut down because there were typical french curtains around the windows but once we opened the door, we realised it wasn’t shut. We had reserved a table and sat down, The staff are very friendly and spoke pretty good english. There wasn’t many people but we had arrived at 7:30PM and when we left around 9:30PM, it was completely full. The menu is also in english so you would not struggle trying to understand the menu. I ordered as starter the bone marrow which is a typical french dish and tasted very good. Sadly the snails were sold out which I would have ordered. As main course I ordered a steak with some fries. The portions come quite big and that’s why when we were there we realised most people only ordered a main course. That’s why sadly I didn’t feel like I could have a dessert. But the atmosphere is very french and have the typical french table cloths. I would definitely come back again, I would rate this a 5 out of 5
