The French Eating Out Guide

31.01.2018

Below you will see our extensive ‘eating out’ guide. This is simply a rough guide as to which meal choices are to be avoided, savoured, or indulged in. We have concentrated on starters, mains and side dishes. This is because if you are choosing to have 2 courses, you should choose starter and main, rather than dessert. Sides can also be helpful in bulking out a main course with extra veggies and salad. 

French cuisine has a tendency to contain high amounts of fat as many things are cooked in butter and cream. Instead choose meals that are sauteed and roasted without these.
