The French have had a long love affair with food that has made French cuisine the standard against which all other food is judged.

So what better way to start a hen night out than with a meal at a top French restaurant?

You can trust French food to be deliciously full flavoured and easy on the palette. Give the escargots a try, they are really tasty, or for something more familiar sole meuniere is a seafood dish to die for. There’s so much choice and all of it so tempting that you’ll find it hard to decide. But take your time; it will give you the opportunity to sample a glass or two of French wine to get the meal off on the right foot. And no French meal is complete without a gorgeous dessert such as sorbet or crème brulee or, if you have less of sweet tooth, a platter of superb French cheeses.
