Judson K's Review of Food Lovers Guide To ParisReviewed on 6/8/18 6:34 PM
This updated version is beautiful and very functional. Even when not online, the map is accurate and useful. It made my most recent trip to Paris a resounding success, taking me to local haunts and new neighborhoods I would not have visited otherwise. Just like having a trusted local guide with you at all times.
Ringdelio's Review of Food Lovers Guide To ParisReviewed on 12/8/18 12:36 PM
I'm a huge fan of Patricia Wells' writing and own several (OK, three) of her books, so when in Paris for two weeks, I was excited to discover her app. Very disappointing, not for her words, when I could get to them, but for the functionality of the app. Doesn't rotate on the iPad, wants to show a landscape view in portrait mode. Buttons are unresponsive. The content is kept up to date, but the basic operation doesn't get fixed. I doubt that the developer ever looks at the app on an iOS device. Wells' writing and criticism deserves a better presentation.

I was in Paris for eight days and this app worked great on the technical side however it led me to three sub par restaurants and therefore 3 really disappointed experiences. 1. The first was La Penderie. The atmosphere was awesome but the wine was terrible and my chicken was super dry and tasteless. The charcuterie and creme brulee were good but the mixed drinks were awful and service was slow. 2. The second was Cosi a sandwich place which was ok but nothing exceptional. I felt Patricia Well's review was overly exaggerated and my friends I took there were not impressed. However the service was nice. 3. The third was Cafe Napolean. The view of the church on the plaza was quaint and relaxing. The review recommended the nicoise salad which i ordered and it was totally gross canned dark meat tuna. Not fresh. However I do highly recommend the nicoise salad at Da Rosa in adornment 6. The service at Cafe Bonaparte was extremely slow. It took us 45 mins to get our bottle of wine. I would have much rather spent my 100 euro for another night at Le Gorille Blanc, best variety of French cuisine and best value in Paris. Rabbit and duck confit are to die for.

The long awaited update was well worth the wait! This is the only guide you will need to explore the wonders of the Paris food scene. Beautifully written and extremely well researched, Patricia Wells takes you on the perfect culinary tour of Paris. Great incites into both the classical bistrot cuisine of Paris and the ever changing ethnic cuisine..... I am ready to book a flight to Paris, a must have app for the lover of all things culinary.

This delightful app has a map with GPS, which is reason enough to get it. Then it maps out the nearest places and gives Patricia Wells’ take on it. I probably went to 15 places from this app, maybe one was disappointing and at least half were terrific and things I would not have found on my own.
Pmwolverton's Review of Food Lovers Guide To ParisReviewed on 12/8/18 12:36 PM
Do not purchased this app. You cannot search for restaurants. You must scroll through and alphabetized list of restaurants with no guidance. This is a big disappointment from our 1999 version of food lovers guide to Paris which we have used time and time again in Paris.

This app does not open initially. I turned off my iPad and then I was able to open it After that I cannot change pages. It works ok with iPhone.
