Monsieur Bleu

After a quick power nap we were out for dinner. We hadn’t booked any restaurants before we arrived in Paris so this was a very last minute booking earlier that morning. After Googling ‘restaurants with a view of the Eiffel Tower’ we stumbled upon Monsieur Bleu and thought why not!

There it is..

peeping through the trees.

The Maître D’ saw us trying to take photos through the trees and said “Ahhh follow me..”

She took us to the end of the restaurant et voila…

We couldn’t refuse this photo opportunity..

I went for a prawn avocado and grapefruit salad which was delicious.

All beautifully presented and all delicious.

It wasn’t long before the mains arrived

Belly pork with creamy mash potato.

Caramelised black cod with pak choi and jasmine rice. The cod was so buttery and literally melted in your mouth.

Thai cod which had the most delicious broth and sweet potato mash.

We all raved about how delicious they were to each other as we swapped and shared mouthfuls.

We were so full but after a little break we were presented with the dessert menu…we couldn’t refuse so we just shared 2 between us

A classic, Ile flottante. Which translates as floating island and is a French classic.

This one had a bit of a twist..

Instead of the meringue floating on a bed of crème anglaise, the crème anglaise was inside..

so it was inside out.

and then we also had an upside down lemon meringue pie.

This got voted one of the best desserts in France and we can confirm, it was a worthy winner.

Fit to burst I told everyone we had to get a step on because I wanted to get up the Arc de Triumph before the sun set.

We didn’t quite make sunset but we made dusk.

Out of all the views in Paris the view from the Arc de Triumph is my favourite one.

Going up The Eiffel Tower is all well and good (and one to tick off a list) but the thing you can’t see when you’re up there…Paris’s most iconic landmarks..The Eiffel Tower itself!

So this way you get to see the whole of Paris PLUS The Eiffel Tower.

I mean it’s pretty spectacular!
