One of the oldest brasseries in Rouen, right in the centre, facing the Cathedral. Very good value lunchtime menus for less than 20€ feature classic dishes and house specialities e.g. Chausson de Madame Paul au Camembert et aux Pommes.
Booking recommended. Open 10.00-23.00 Sun-Thurs and 10.00-midnight Friday-Saturday.
Excellent restaurant in traditional Norman-style building in centre of this friendly, bustling little town. Lovely food based on fresh local ingredients and a warm welcome. Try the "Tarte Tatin"! Closed Sunday evenings and all day Wednesday.

Around 20 minutes from Rouen
I've been to Nexxt twice and the food is great. The menu is huge, the portions are huge. Meal for two for between $40 and $80.
Note: check your bill carefully because our waiter added charges for things we didn't order. Despite that I went back and would return again.

This restaurant is a (not so) hidden gem where where the chef, the lovely Nathalie, cooks beautiful and original dishes using fresh local ingredients. Her husband runs the dining room and will give you tips on which wine will suit your meal better.
Their cooking book "trop mad" has recently won the first prize in the "Best local cookbook in the world" competition in Beijing.
Go there and you're in for a real treat.

We went to Mallorca for 2 weeks and this was the best food we ate while we were there.
It's a small restaurant, seating maybe 20 at the most - it's business card says, Bistro, Cocina de Mercado.
The food was amazing - they have a fixed 5 course menu that changes each month for 22.50 Euros and it was just incredible: I remember mostly the caramelised pate, chicken and asparagus in filo, there was a fish dish, and a beautiful desert that had fresh strawberry or raspberry sorbet.
Much better than the restaurant at Hotel Portixol by a coutry mile or three.
I'm thinking of going back every month.

This friendly restaurant in the north Brittany town of Ploubalay is fruits de mer HQ. Towering piles of crustaceans at very reasonable prices.
Good-value menus too. Best to call ahead to check opening hours and make sure of a table.

A lovely new branch of an all-day dim sum restaurant. Really fantastic staff, truly great food, excellent, good quality and not too pricey cocktails.
Plus, order the Jasmine Flower tea - beautifully served, art in a glass that tastes lovely. Our food (a lot of it) was served a gentle but constant pace to our table on the patio outdoors. And when we left we were shocked that the bill was only just over £40 inc. service, drinks and far too many dim sum. Fantastic. The drinks were nice enough to justify just going for a couple of pre-theatre/ post-shopping cocktails (made with fresh fruits, herbs and al ot of ice - ideal for summer).
On the new Festival Terrace, South Bank centre (above Giraffe et al.). Walk past Le Pain Quotidien - great for informal brunch- away from the river. 020 7960 4160, www.pingpongdimsum.com
Tuskers is a great pub and restaurant in Chiang Mai. I was recommended it by the Elephant Nature Park as they give a 10% donation to elephant conservation.
It is a huge place with a great open bar, big garden, pool room and a separate sports bar so something for everyone. I had a relaxing meal listening to music in the garden while a big crowd was watching rugby upstairs.
The food was excellent, they have a western and Thai menu and serve cocktails. The staff were very friendly and gave advice on where to go in Chiang Mai.
Really recommend highly!
A little off the beaten track of lanes in the town but worth finding. Interesting and varied menu (especially compared to a lot of that on offer elsewhere in town) and very reasonably priced.
Staff delightful, very friendly and helpful. After your meal the bar is a fun relaxed place to continue an evening.
From the port follow Matoyianni street and where you see Nautica (restaurant) on the corner, turn left into the lane.
Quite the most delicious meal I have ever had. Goats' cheese with cous cous and figs; seared tuna with wasabi mashed potatoes.
The atmosphere was relaxing. Although there was a terrace, we ate in as the evening was cool. Efficient, warm and friendly service.
Off the main pedestrian shopping street. Steinbachgasslein 34.
Actually, I have been in this beach, and I can say it is really amazing. It is very beautiful and you can only enjoy it during the summer. The boat trip to this beach is also nice.
There is a restaurant where you can taste the quality typical seafood and fishes of this region. If you come here, bring your suncream with you because the sun is too high.
Probably both the cheapest and the most authentic pizza I've had in Vietnam. Proper oven, proper ingredients, proper training, no messing around!
And the prices are sure to please. Located within walking distance of the backpacker district. Note the shop is very small, only a few small tables available facing the noisy traffic.

Great burgers, steaks, Tex-Mex food. Cold beers, efficient service, pool table, free monkey nuts, free pop corn ... yeah you've guessed I'm not talking about the Sheraton!
Definitely a 'saloon' atmosphere. Friendly owners as well. All topped off with free wifi. Or if you're not carrying your mobile device there's a computer you can use.
On Rajvithi Road, down from UN Irish Pub.
If you like to relax with a good glass of wine then you must stop by Andy's Wine Bar and Restaurant in Nha Trang.
Go upstairs and nab one of the cozy balcony seats - you'll have a bird's eye view of street life below.
The wine bar has a very special ambience with its cathedral-like ceilings and large open windows overlooking the neighbouring church yard.
If you're not a wine drinker and just want a relaxing place to eat, they have some really tasty Vietnamese dishes (at very resonable prices too).
Restaurant is owned and managed by two local brothers, who generously provide tips on travel around Vietnam. You may even be lucky enough to join them on one of their bike tours into the Nha Trang countryside.
Andy's Restaurant & Wine Bar, 1G Hung Vuong street, Nha Trang.
Avoid this place like the plague. Claimed on the phone they catered for vegans, on arrival one dish on the main menu was vegan, so they said, but when it arrived it smelt strongly of Guinness. They confirmed this and whilst I pointed out Guinness was not even a vegetarian product (due to its isinglass fining) they just shrugged. Also had no vegan desserts and no knowledge of whether wine was either vegetarian or vegan. This is NOT a true vegetarian restaurant, rather a place for meat-eaters who want a taste of 'meat-less' meals.
43 Lapwing Lane
Some of the best vegetartian food I have eaten ever. Great vegan choices and very accommodating with a teenager who wanted an 'interesting' mix of foods. Can not recommend enough.
