As you walk and pass by among the food places in Paris, the restaurant’s sign outside is easily visible with its bold red text and pink background. Furthermore, the name itself reyna (queen) is eye-catching as it’s different from the usual French-named restaurants in the city.

On the outside, the almost floor-to-ceiling glass windows help you see the interiors. They also make it open and inviting for guests to come in.

Once inside, you get a better feel of the dainty restaurant with minimal lights and decorations, but that’s still elegant-looking with seats arranged on both sides, leaving space in the middle for guests to walk through.

Founded by Filipino chef Erica Paredes, the restaurant introduces a taste of the Philippines’ well-known delicacies fused into a Parisian concept of dining and style. You’d think that these gourmet dishes are fully French, then comes a Filipino twist that makes up the whole dish.
