This well-known restaurant can be found at one corner of Place du Parlement, a very busy, and quite touristy, square near the Quai. If you’re in search of something quite French with a very reasonably priced three-course menu (13.50 euro), then l’Ombriere could be the perfect dining spot for you.
With a large outdoors area which allows for people-spotting and fountain-watching from your table, this restaurant is a fantastic spot to while away a late summers evening over a glass of wine and a bowl of Moules Marinière. It’s also perfectly situated if the party spirit takes over your mood, with a host of bars just around the corner, and even The Houses of Parliament English pub.
I can’t pretend it was the quickest service that I’ve ever experienced, but adopting the laid back French south west attitude for the night meant it didn’t seem a problem. I am certain that this is one restaurant that I shall return to.
