Calling Planet Ocean

Advantages: Lovely views. Superb displays of seafood and fish in fishmongers below restaurant.
Disadvantages: Rather average cuisine and service. Surprisingly tasteless dishes. Confusing menu.

Planète Océan is a seafood restaurant in the small town of Étaples-sur-Mer. Étaples is a well-known port on the Canche river in the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region of France so it's not surprising that many of the restaurants there specialise in fish and seafo ...

Review of Planete Ocean, Etaples

Diamond review  La crème de la crème

Review of Le Relais Fleuri, Lagny-sur-Marne

We'll hang out the washing on the 'corde a linge'

Advantages: A modern light take on traditional Alsatian food
Disadvantages: A very confusing menu

Have you ever eaten Alsatian? Strasbourg is an interesting place whose nationality has swung back and forth between French and German due to its proximity to the border and the sometimes rather enthusiastic tendency of its near neighbours to pop over ...
