So far, the best French restaurant I went to is La Bonne Franquette. It’s located close to U Naturkunde Museum and not too far from Nord Bahnhoff. It might look a little pricey but it’s totally worth it. I went with a big group and everybody was delighted. Unfortunately, if you’re vegetarian you’ll be disappointed, there’s only meat and fish among the main courses.
You can get there some of the famous weirdest French dishes such as frog legs and snails, well, can’t give you my advice on this since I don’t eat this, but those who tried loved it. I had for starter some foie gras, it was to die for, served with toasted bread and toasted gingerbread, I couldn’t be more satisfied since I think foie gras on toasted gingerbread is quite close to Heaven. I then had some duck breast, it normally comes with sweet potatoes gratin but they agreed to give me a gratin dauphinois (normal potatoes gratin wich was excellent) instead. The meat was perfectly cooked, very tasty, wonderful. For dessert I had a chocolate cake with a melty heart which was fantastic. Everybody loved their food.
You don’t get a menu but have to look at the slate on the wall or at the one the staff will put next to your table. The menu is written in French subtitled in German, if like some of my friends you speak none or badly of those but have no French with you, I’m sure the lovely staff will help you. The place is quite small but cosy, be sure to book, the service was great. I can’t wait to go back there!
