A Luxury Travel Blog‘s quick guide to some of the tell-tale signs when trying to find a good place to eat out on vacation. The good… 1. Find a restaurant with locals. That’s usually a good starting point. 2. Find a restaurant that’s fully booked. OK, so you might not be able to get a table – but book for the following evening. 3. Check the menu (and the wine list). Is what they’re serving in season? The bad… 1. Avoid restaurants that have a waiter beckoning you as you walk by. It’s not a good sign and suggests, if anything, that you are just in the wrong part of town. A good restaurant will fill its tables because of the quality of the food, and not on the ability of a ‘catcher’. 2. Restaurants that are close to major tourist landmarks. You’ll usually be better off finding a little backstreet a bit further away for a more authentic experience. The ugly… 1. Chicken and chips… no, no, no! Same goes for burgers, etc. (unless, perhaps, you’re in the US). 2. Menus with flags for every nationality. Please add your own views or tips by posting a comment. Thank you.
