A fondue evening at Petit Paris which is genuinely French – it has good an bad days! The fondue was fun – charcuterie to start, which was OK, a really nice cheese fondue and an apple and almond tart. With house wine and tip, it worked out about £22 each. Petit Paris has a great atmosphere, like lots of French bistros, and it’s worth visiting.

Unusually, eating out in London (normally I take day trips) and we had a working dinner at the Forge. Good tuna sashimi, followed by swordfish and tarte tatin. Excellent wine from the USA (Washinton state), chosen by one of my wine buff colleagues. Perfectly good meal (I didn’t pay so don’t know the price!)
Nargile is a Turkish/Mediterranean restaurant with branches in Edinburgh and Aberdeen. We started with mezze (hot and cold) which is excellent – the highlight of the meal. The others had kebabs of one kind or another (lots of meat) but I tried the Rendezvous Special which was torn up pitta, lamb and garlic with a buttery/spicy sauce. It was good but we have eaten so much mezze that it was difficult to finish. Wine list was uninspring and the house wine (white and red) was pretty ordinary. We’d definitely go back but may well skip the wine next time.
