Can you suggest christmas dinner on 25/12/10 for 3 adults . We are staying in the 7th androssment but it doesnt have to be there. I dont mind paying a good price for good food and wine.

Well, you'll have to check to be sure they're still open Christmas Day but it really depends on what you want:
The Bistrot du Dome is a nifty but informal seafood bistro
L’Epigramme is more elegant food but still in an informal friendly setting
I've crossed Mon Vieil Ami off my list because of its inconsistency
L’Entêtée is fun and good
and the Bistrot Paul Bert is about as

What a pleasure it is to discover your blog. I am wondering if you could suggest a couple of places that we can prebook, not too pricey or far from Place des Vosges for Christmas day lunch that would be suitable for my husband and I and our 10year old twins. We will have arrived in Paris that morning after a very long flight from Australia.
Many thanks

I am not wild about eating near the Place des Vosges as beautiful as it is. In addition, Christmas Day may be a challenge. That said I'd call and see if either Le Gaigne or Claude Colliot (not to everyone's taste) are open:

Le Gaigne
12, rue Pecquay, 4th (Metro: Rambuteau)
Closed Sunday and Monday
Menus at 16 and

The Restaurant Claude Colliot
40 Rue des Blancs Manteaux in the 4th (Metro: Rambuteau I guess)
Closed Sundays and Mondays
Menu 34 E.

Many thanks for your suggestions. I will look into these (and keep an eye on your reviews as well).
Best wishes
