Sun, the seaside, a fresh and light meal is exactly the kind of time-out you need during a busy day of shopping. Mediterranean cuisine combines the flavours of different countries: Italy, France, Spain and Greece...a common feature is olive oil, used plentifully in cooking seafood and vegetables.

What better way to top up the tank than with a delicious meal rich in fibre and Omega 3 from a restaurant at Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann in the Opera district.
