Trip Report Gems in Paris : close to Luxembourg gardens. Hotel and restau

Jump to last reply

Smack in the 6th close to Luxembourg gardens in a oh so safe area I found - for you - a superb hotel and a great restaurant.

Hotel : relais Medicis. Oh my God so typically Parisian. A lovely hotel on place Odeon. Must date from XVII century stone visible at floor level timber in the rooms. Decoration typical French old style with embroidered curtains. Old wooden furniture great double bed (no idea if king or queen - I sleep alone - if interested in me I am tall blond gorgeous businessman used to making quick decisions and start working up on Friday).
Room is gigantic to Paris standards - hosts a sofa ! And a small table with 2 chairs.
Staff very welcoming. Perfect. 4 stars so not cheap but got it for half price - booked yesterday - not ideal if coming from afar.

Restaurant la Ferrandaise. Stone and timber. Dates from XVII I asked.
Indicates all fresh product and 'fait maison'. The master of is nice (allow me to be condescending of this expression maitre d' which means nothing) friendly and looks approvingly when you counter his 'said ant' question for the meat by 'plutot blue' (rather rare - blue in French).
Foie gras preside as entree ( stater you fools not main course - did I subtly hint that I am condescending when confronted with hijacking of French words ?) - I thought if you PQ ;-). Fabulous.
Piece de boeuf (meat) was melting in the mouth - perfect with pommes de terre grenaillees ( look that one up - basically potatoes ).
And figues for dessert.

A great moment - I only missed my wife (forget what I said I am not interested, being in love with my wife) she who has more taste than me would have loved it.

Not that cheap - 55 euros with half a bottle of pouilly fume.

Good day to you !
