Not bad... Restaurant made me laugh, good joke ;). Anyway, Clovis was a king of the Franks. Strictly speaking, Philip II Augustus is the first "King of France". Oh, and there is no s in Louvre.

Since you're looking for "restaurant" in French, you should accept "le restaurant". I tried that and it didn't work so I almost gave up.

No, what you say is an american cliché. Of course, the french language is such that nouns are always preceeded by a determiner, but it can be "un", "ce", "au", etc. The article is absolutely not part of the word.

Ok. No. Ubisoft is a Quebec videogames company, which is in Canada and not in France. This should be corrected :)

Could you clarify that the longest river is the longest river (entirely) in France? Otherwise, there are those of us who'd argue the Rhine, which flows through France is longer.

The Rhine in its entirety is longer than the Loire, but the section of the Rhine in France is not longer than the Loire in France.

Hehe, this is fun to do as a french person :P And I still learn things... like the names of the Daft Punk guys (still, easy to guess). Also I had never ever heard about those wines. Where are they from ?

It's truly ironic that for a site that routinely chops off the last letter(s) of words (e.g. Riyadh), you insist that we type the "s" in "Medecins Sans Frontieres".

I had trouble with that, knew the answer but couldn't get it recognised. I'd like Medicine without Borders to be accepted too as some people know the answer but not French.

It's not Medicines without Borders, it's Doctors without Borders. Without the 's' it would be Doctor without Borders which is obviously incorrect.

Red Bull races with a Honda engine now. McLaren switched from Honda to the answer, so the clue still works with a different team.
