Restaurants

Restaurants are arranged in alphabetical order, by country. Posts from before 2015 will link to an older version of this blog. For restaurants that did not get a post, the date of our most recent meal there is indicated.

I’ve almost certainly omitted plenty of restaurants from this list, by accident or because of a meal that did not meet expectations. Generally speaking, I also don’t list “casual” restaurants unless they are absolutely fantastic. Reader, don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have questions…
