When I visited: March 2017
Location: Paris, near Jardin de Tuileries
Rating in the Michelin Guide: Not in Guide
What to wear: Could go casual
Ambience: Fun friendly café
Course of the meal: Salade Niçoise
If I could change one thing: More pastry in the tarte tatin
My partner Owl and I came across Le Florentin when looking for a light lunch place after strolling through the Jardin des Tuileries. I love a good salade Niçoise and this was a great one, perfectly balanced. The apple tarte tatin we shared was tasty but too squidgy – it could have done with more pastry and structure. The service was really friendly (we were asked if we were in Paris for Fashion Week, which a lot of the other English-speaking guests clearly were).
