I wanted to give a shout-out to a couple of great restaurants that we discovered on our recent trip to France.
The first is the KV&B, in Bandol, on the south coast between Marseille and Toulon. It’s on a small street, just back from the seafront, so you probably wouldn’t find it unless you knew where to look. The menu is small, but perfectly formed, and is a great improvement on some of the pizza joints in the area. The bill was in the order of €30 a head without wine. They must be doing well, they’ve got another restaurant in the same street.
The second one is a lovely bistro in Paris. It’s called the Restaurant Perraudin and it’s on Rue Saint Jacques in the heart of Paris near the Boulevard Saint-Germain. I had a delicious entrocôte steak and frites. Book if you want a table in the front of the restaurant – red and white checked tableclothes and everything.
