Dinner outside


Here is where I had dinner with a few friends to celebrate a birthday! The weather was gorgeous, the scenery (well, see for yourself!) and the food exquisite - Not to mention that since it's a no car street, it was very quiet . On the cultural side, you should know that this is the Gervais-Saint-Protais church, an exceptionnal place, both outside and inside. Now, are you jealous of me?!

  5. Yeah, rue des Barres is special. I always love strolling through here, but I did not know there were restaurants in it. Great photo.

    I really really miss Paris.

  18. I also love this area and often stay nearby when in Paris, waking up to the sound of the church bells.
    The church is one of my favourites. Its beautiful baroque facade, which is a later addition, disguises a gothic church which is one of the oldest in Paris. It is home to a monastic community and has a very nice sung mass on Sundays, the sisters being very welcoming and friendly, in the nicest possible sense of course.
    Two of the oldest houses in Paris are nearby and the place has a feel of medieval Paris. are a number of restaurants and cafes which have all been pretty good.
