Total relaxation

"Dear Rosa,

I just had to write and let you know how much my friends and I enjoyed the Edible Paris tour.  You were very generous with your suggestions and we made it to almost all of them over the 2 days.  As you suggested, we found Bread and Roses, just down from our hotel, and ate breakfast there both mornings.  The first morning, they were putting out lunch as we were leaving and it looked so delicious that we went back late that afternoon and picked up a smorgasbord of what was left and look it back to the Villa Madame.  Franck brought us wine to the terrace, as well as plates, silverware, and napkins, and we had a leisurely dinner.  It was total relaxation which was perfect since we were really tired from walking all day.  Edible Paris was the highlight of our time in Paris.  Thanks so much."

A perfect week in Paris

"I just wanted to let you know that we had a wonderful time in Paris and your itinerary led us to many wonderful meals.  We especially enjoyed walking around in our neighborhood and picking up things from the market and wonderful shops in the area.  And our "date night" at Le Pamphlet was exactly what we were hoping for.  Afaria for our last night celebration was really wonderful.  They accommodated us and even gave us a bigger table away from the hustle and bustle.  Baby spent the evening watching the world go by through the front windows.

We didn't get to do nearly as much as we wanted, but it was a fabulous vacation anyway.  We hope to go back soon and will certainly recommend your services to our friends!  All of the places you suggested to us was exactly as you said and we learned so much and had the most amazing food for the week.  If only La Boulanger de Monge would deliver to Washington DC..."

Thanks again.

Christmas surprise

"Hello Rosa!

Thanks for the itinerary. It was a great surprise, and an excellent choice of places! Le Hangar is going to be our favorite restaurant in Paris from now on: Peter is already experimenting how to cook a "soupe au potiron avec des marrons". We actually had to split the itinerary in 2 days - getting up late was one reason, but we also walked all ways (up AND down Montmartre), and there were also sooo many things to see and try. To Josephine Chez Dumonet we went on our last night in Paris which was a great way to wave the city good-bye until next time. I will definitely recommend you to all the food lovers who ask me for restaurant choices next time!

Thanks again!"

Paris at its best

"Dear Rosa,
At long last I can tell you how we both got on in Paris as per your itinerary. Well, you are superb and we followed it to the letter and it went perfectly - thank you!
Velly restaurant was superb and the food magnificent, varied and market fresh together with being value for money. Fantastic location which we made use of by walking up to the Sacré Coeur that evening after supper. What we loved was to see the fishmongers, boulangerie etc all still open well after 8pm. The French take such pride in their food, even the smallest item.
The Grande Epicerie blew my mind and Fauchon and we had the most wonderful lunch at the Café Du Marché.
I could go on and on but you know what you are talking about and because of you we achieved everything we had hoped for and more.
Most of all we had been to Paris before but stayed around the Champs Elysées and were disillusioned to say the least. This time we saw the real Paris and because of you will return very soon. I'll be in touch....
Thank you again so very much"

A birthday to remember

"Dear Rosa,

Thank you so much, your itinerary was fabulous. I actually ate my way through Paris! My friends and I loved not having decisions to make (except which pastry to choose!), but to leisurely stroll through Paris and take it all in. The evening meal was the weirdest event I've yet to experience!! We all loved the food, but it felt like a 'show', not knowing what we would see or taste next. We even took photos! La Famille were great and even recommended where to go locally to finish the evening off.

Rosa you helped me have a truly unforgettable 30th birthday. I will definitely be back! Thanks again!"

Happy in Amsterdam

"We loved the breakfast. We loved all the little shops you recommended and ate and ate and ate... nice. Most of all we loved the place with the wine bar in the back - we went back there a few times and felt like insiders. By dinner time we were so full that we had hardly any space left, so we didn't eat much - but had a good time with very cosy atmosphere.

So... thank you very much! With a smile from Amsterdam."

Paris highlight

"Dear Rosa:
We followed your itinerary for our Paris visit during the first week of September and had a wonderful experience. Every place you suggested was terrific, and our lunch at Chez la Vieille was superb. We would never have found the place ourselves, and the cozy atmosphere and delicious rabbit was everything we hoped for. We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary with this trip, and while the entire trip was wonderful our two highlights were dinner at Taillevent and your "food day". Thank you again for your assistance."

Birthday bistro

"Thank you again for your prompt excellent recommendation and last minute reservation. Next time I'll ask you to do all the nights we are in Paris because except for (our old favorite) Au Bon Saint Pourcain, our two other meals were not good. Many thanks and bonne chance to Edible Paris!"

The perfect restaurant

"Rosa

I thought I'd drop you a quick e-mail to thank you for your restaurant recommendation. The entire experience at Flora was excellent. Just as you said, it was like being entertained in someone's apartment. The service couldn't be faulted, and the food was superb. I'm having difficulty in deciding which of the eight courses I enjoyed the most! However, we both managed to polish everything off before we made our way (very slowly) back to the hotel! I wouldn't hesitate to use your service again, or to visit Flora on our next visit to Paris."

Hidden gems

"There is no way that I would have found the two absolute gems that you listed in my itinerary."


Chris Fraser, London

Insider Paris

"Although I recently lived in Paris for more than a year, Edible Paris's tour showed me places I had never been, right across the city."


Joanna Hunter, The Times newspaper, London

A delicious escape

"What a terrific way to discover the hidden treats of Paris! Our gourmet itinerary took us to places we would never have found on our own. We felt like insiders!"
