It’s Valentine’s Day and we’ve been standing in the freezing cold for about an hour, lining up to get into the Musée d’Orsay. Despite the fact my nose is freezing it is still quite a romantic morning as we’ve been cuddling to keep warm. We start to talk about what we’re going to do when we get inside – should we go straight to the Van Goghs’, or should we wait til our brains warm up before we make a decision? Having heard the restaurant inside was just the setting I wanted for our Valentine’s Day lunch,I decided the first thing we do was go eat.
It had become a trend of ours to just beat the busiest times at restaurants, and as with most of the restaurants and cafes we visited we didn’t have to line up. The maître d’hôtel showed us over to a window seat and it took me a while before I looked at the menu as I was too busy looking around the room. The restaurant has been kept the same since 1900, when the building was then a train station, Gare d’Orsay.
The service was excellent, the food tasty, and miraculously we paid only 66€ for everything.
