“Never set foot in the place at all ever again!!!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2011

When a Restaurant offers on it's advertised leaflet, Open between 9-23 hours non stop and has a board outside advertising the dishes you might like to try ~ at 3pm (don't forget this is in France, heart of good food) one walks in for luncheon, you don't expect to be told, we're shut. Especially when there are other people dining there! Rude staff. Poor ambiance. Situated at an airport, it should accommodate all hours!!!

“I'll never go back”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2010

Well , I came to this restaurant som 25 years ago , then the atmosphere & food were fantastic , back to 2010 , what a disappointment , firstly the decor, cold & unwelcoming , lighting far too bright in the evening & the music just not appropriate, punk rock etc !! extremely surly staff ,no attempt to interact with the clientel, wine list average but has petrus at €1250 per bottle . First course off al la carte , not too bad but not great , main was inedible , cold , overcooked , just not good . We called a halt and asked for le addition after sending our food back, the waitress after agreeing the chef was having a bad night tried to make us feel better by giving us a glass of wine each , not sure what it was but it was nearly as bad as the food , certainly undrinkable, so we paid the bill and left quickly . Ended up with a croque monsuire at hotel, which was only just better ! Never mind we probably won't go back there either .
