Alain Ducasse’s Michelin starred Benoit in Paris was not on my radar until someone highly recommended it to me. He believes it is the best and convinced me to cancel my prior reservation at a restaurant, which I booked a few weeks in advance. My taxi driver had a hard time finding the restaurant, after… READ MORE

Even though Italy is right next to Greece, there is no way to get great Italian pizza. It might be a good thing because I don’t need the extra carbs for my unsuccessful diets. This is why I have been resisting to go to Coupepe and try their pizzas. All of my friends have been… READ MORE

Interni is ideally located in the center of Mykonos with a lovely “secret” garden, fantastic music and a nice ambiance. It is also quite expensive, and naturally the high price tag comes with high expectations. I went there with six of my friends, instead of having a great time, we spent a long time waiting… READ MORE
