Quirky and fun but its difficult to use
on 8 January 2013
Super quirky.. with recommendations which you may not see in your usual guides.I'm sure i'll be using it,a lot, since you shouldnt be able to get better restaurant recommendations. BUT
Its a great idea .. but handled so badly by the publisher. It has the feel of a piece of work rushed out for a deadline. The problem? Its referencing... Say i'm going to Nantes in France.. and would like to see if there's any restaurants suggested... you cant.. Its index is done by restaurant and then by titles, such as "worth travelling for" by country!!!!! not city... So then you have to go back to the main text and look through the whole of the French section (ex Paris) to see if there's any recommended in Nantes.. And there wasnt... Its also really badly set out.. nothing stands out and its printed on poor quality "blotting paper" ..which if taken outside your house will be in pieces in the first breeze, (mine has already had 2 pages come loose and i've only had it 24hrs!) the total opposite in presentation to the once great Michelin Guides.
