23 August, 2023 seen 20Boutique Hotel Sainte-Beuve is located in the heart of Paris on a small and quiet street of Rue Sainte-Beuve 9 in the 6th arrondissement of Paris. The hotel is conventionally located within walking distance of neighborhoods Montparnasse and Saint Germain Des Prés, 200m from the Luxembourg Gardens. We booked about a 2-night stay here at the start of July…
La Frégate is set on the Left Bank of the Seine in central Paris between the Louvre, the Tuileries Gardens and the Musee d'Orsay. This stylish brasserie is said to be built on the site of the house occupied by Field Marshal D'Artagnan, the character that inspired Alexandre Dumas to write The Three Musketeers.
La Frégate has a lovely décor with ornate frescoed ceilings, pale lemon Louis XVI chairs, tables laid with crisp white linen while soft lighting sets the scene.
I had a chance to take a dinner after visiting the famous palace of Louvre back in July 2023
Typical offerings on the carte are duck foie gras served with toast or frog legs with garlic mayonnaise followed by mains of veal cutlet with mushroom sauce and mashed potatoes or grilled sea bass with vegetables while desserts tempt with the likes of chocolate profiteroles and crêpes suzette. Service is friendly and efficient by the bi-lingual waiting staff and there are tables outside to take in the views.
We tried the traditional French Onion soup, salmon steak and both French beer and cider. Kiddo enjoyed pasta and ice cream
Surprisingly our total bill was quite Okay, around EUR 70-80. The staff spoke English very well, service was great and food amazing. Highly recommend!
