MP's Bar & Grill

MP’s Bar & Grill (Montreux)

The feel of the MP Grill is classic and clean modern take on the space and what the hotel describes as a fusion of belle époque and arresting contemporary aesthetics.  It is actually quite a lovely space and feels very must connected to the aesthetic feel of the hotel.  Walls of windows afford a fantastic view of the lake…

Restaurant L'Olivier

Restaurant L’Olivier

We dined here on the recommendation of friends who live in the area (who also happen to appreciate good food) and it is one of their favorite local spots. We were staying in Montreux but getting to L’Olivier in La Tour-de-Peilz could not be easier. The restaurant is located in the Hostellerie Bon Rivage a lovely small hotel on the shores of Lake Geneva.

Lima GF Travel Guide, Part Three, The Food

Lima has been called the Culinary Capital of the Americas and let me be the first to tell you that it definitely lived up to the title on my recent visit. Now, I was first a bit apprehensive because of its proximity to the Pacific Ocean which meant that fish and shellfish would likely be plentiful and featured at restaurants throughout the City – and given my shellfish allergy this always makes me a bit antsy. I mean the City is famous for it ceviche after all with entire restaurants dedicated to this popular dish. I need not have worried though as Lima’s amazing culinary scene has quite literally something for everyone and finding gluten- and shellfish-free options…

Lima GF Travel Guide, Part One, The Flights

My trip to Lima was better than I could have expected. I mean, I knew it was going to be a great trip but was so interested to see how far the City has come since the horrible terrorist attacks during the 1980’s which severely damaged the reputation of Lima. Well, I am happy to report that the Lima of today is a rich and vibrant city that has most deservedly captured the title of culinary capital of the Americas. Lima is very much a city of stark contrasts particularly rich and poor but one this that is unifying is the warm welcome and sense of pride that its inhabitants have.
