When you go away on holiday it is always nice to have great recommendations for places to eat and drink from people who have visited there before or even better from the local people that live there. I was lucky enough to know someone who lives in the centre of Paris so they could recommend places to go near our hotel, it definitely makes it easier when you don't need to worry about wasting your money on a place that isn't really that special.
I don't know about you but when I am on holiday the places where you go to eat and drink is really important and for me these were 2 really special places that were probably some of the best memories of the weekend break.
I am so glad we managed to find this place as it ended up being a really special evening. We were greeted by a really friendly waiter who told us because we hadn't booked he could just squeeze us in and that we could only sit outside in the garden area, this was perfect for us as it was a lovely evening and it looked very intriguing out there. The restaurant soon got packed with people and it was a great atmosphere. It was all candle lit outside so we could only just see our food but it didn't matter as it was so delicious and we were just to busy taking in the amazing space we were sat in, it was like we were in a secret garden and were looking down on the people that were sat dining inside the restaurant. The photo of the football table was one of the quirky touches to the hotel, it was placed right outside the toilets, maybe it is for when there is a queue for the toilet and you can have a game of table football whilst you are waiting!

Another amazing experience for us was going to this place for an early dinner and drinks. We had a long day of sight seeing and shopping so we were ready for an unwind and what a place to do it in. Located on the left wing on the Musee Louvre, just feet away from the glass pyramid and the Eiffel Tower in the distance is what truly make this place magical. Here was the place where we had the best Mojito and this may sound slightly ridiculous but the best Coke we have ever had. Both of these drinks arrived with silver spoons in them, the Mojito yes I can understand the spoon but the Coke we just couldn't work out, that is until I lifted it out of the glass to see it covered in sugar. It was probably one of the most expensive Cokes we have ever had but my boyfriend was so impressed he still will not talking about it. I know when you think how much sugar is already in the drink but this one more spoonful seriously made all the difference. Funny I know to talk about it this much but it was definitely worth it! There was again an inside restaurant and also a seating area down at the bottom on the flat surface but the best seating is on the balcony where you can take all the beautiful views in.
If you are taking a trip to Paris anytime soon I would definitely recommend checking out these places, they made the trip for us!
