Hi allI am looking for suggestions of a venue in Paris which could cater for up to 60 people. To provide a reception, dinner and space to dance. All within a budget of 50€ per person. If you have any ideas I would love to hear them as the event is in 5 weeks !!!Thank-youSinead
For info, Nicolas (the wine sellers) now have 4 of their shops that have a restaurant attached, so you can choose a bottle of wine in the shop (at any price) and then drink it with cheese/or charcuterie or a proper meal for just 3euros more. We tried the Bercy shop and although the atmosphere of the restaurant was quite cafeteria like, the concept is good as it works out much cheaper.
I hear that prices of food and alcohol can be very high in this area. Does anyone know any less expensive options in repect of Both of the above. Also where to go to watch 6 Nations games. France v Wales Friday night. And England v IRELAND Sat afternoon ? Any info welcome. Regards, and thanks.
Hi, We will be coming to Paris in October and staying near Port d'Italy, Yes I know it's China Town, We are bringing our niece who has never been to Paris before and would like to go to a Parisien restaurant near or on the metro line without too much changing, 2 young kids in tow, Oh and we run are Normandy farmers not stock brokers so nothing too expensive, Cheers Martyn and Mary
Today, I went to the Sunday market at Basilique de St. Denis. It's close (by car) and it's enormous, with a huge choice. The prices are seriously low and I will be a regular from now on. I drove there and the simplest directions are as follows: Peripherique - A1 towards Charles de Gaulle airport - 1st exit, towards St. Denis - follow signs to centre of town - follow signs to car park "Basilique" - Park and walk up the stairs to the market. I hope this helps people. If you know of any other markets (other than the usual ones in Paris), do let us all know.
