Hi Frances

We have used Jack's recommendations extensively for two trips, and in my opinion, he really knows what he is talking about. We were very pleased. Good value and good food.

About reservations: we had them and were glad. We saw people turned away at several of the places we ate at. We did not go to any brasseries this trip, just bistrots.

We especially liked Bistrot Cote Mer, where we saw several people turned away. Les Olivades was also very good. L'Affriole was very good and the amount of food was amazing. All three of these were completely filled.

Bon Voyage, Debbie Ps. We also recommend La Cour du Fond in the 4th. We have never read about this place, and happened in because we stayed nearby. It was very good, with friendly service a good value prix fixe dinner.
