Before I start let me say I am not a heathen as far as food is concerned and one of those "things you want to do before you die " for me is to eat in a Michelin star restaurant in every place I visit. I havent done badly so far and all have been amazing experiences in different ways. I also always choose the chefs tasting menu with Matching wines. I was very excited about going to Le Degustation. The evening got off to a good start with several amuse Bouche that were very nice. Then came the first course, snails... I managed to eat 2, but couldnt bear to eat the last one! Personal taste you could say, so let's carry on. The cavier was ok, the leek, pear and parsley was tasteless , the chicken was like something you would get from a mass catering function. I tried desperately to stay positive that out of 12 courses there would be something fabulous to make it all worth while. Unfortunately not and I haven't mentioned the Sommelier or the wine pairing have I ? No, well there was no passion or enthusiasm for the wine and I think it makes alot of difference, half of the enjoyment is listening to the Sommelier imparting his knowledge. The service was good (despite receiving the chicken course twice!if I had liked it , I might have eaten it again !
Sorry to leave such a poor review but I am so disapointed. £500 worth of disapontment! Never mind, it eont put me off my quest. I went to Kampa Park by the way and that was fabulous.
