The decoration and nice vibes of the place kinda gave me some good expectations about Le Macon. But having to wait 30 minutes to get the menu and make the order, wait one hour for a plate of seafood pasta, and realise that it doesn't have any seafood taste, probably due to the fact that the clams are the typical aquaculture Vietnamese ones (a marine biologist like me can easily recognise those), the shrimps are tasteless so as the pasta, and to pay around 18 € for it is rather disappointing.
I would give my thumbs up only to seat there in a nice sunny day for a nice glass of wine or beer. However, be aware that if you order beer in a glass and if this comes with a fly and you complain, they won’t necessarily get you a new beer. The fly will be removed and you will get a “new” glass with extra foam!

“They have to find an identity”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2012

Far too expenive for the quality of the food they serve. The chicken was cooked only in the outside leaving the inside raw. We complained but the waiter did not make any comment.
The weaher was good and we were able to sit outside. Nothing special as the small tables are arranged too close to one another and the chairs are really unconfortable!
Rather than having dinner, I would reccomend this place as a stop by for dog walkers! They were indeed few who had had their drinks outside...
