“Not all restaurants in Paris are good, or even acceptible‎”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2009

I realize that sounds terribly naive.
It seemed good from the menu. "Traditional french cuisine." We were tired, it was Sunday night. How bad can duck breast be? Nobody can ruin duck breast. Or can they?
The onion soup was ok-I’m told it is really hard to ruin that. The duck breast was tough and far too overcooked. Yes-duck breast CAN be ruined.
The cheese plate was all soft cheeses without much variety.
It is good to be reminded that, like most other things, it pays to research restaurants carefully-especially when the euro is at $1.50.
