Sorry I pressed the wrong buttons. I don't understand why one of these statements is incorrect. Can you help please?

Hi Stephen,

You cannot say, 

Ce restaurant plaît à nous. , it will be , Ce restaurant nous plaît.

You can however, say-

Ce restaurant plaît à Marie  because it is a named person .

When you use a pronoun it has to go before the verb.

Hope this helps!
