Strange I can't find this restaurant but only Nathalies Gourmet, well this is the restaurant near KL towers, used to be High Tide
Before I went, I was told by 2 people, don't go, you'll be disappointed
despite numerous attempts to book online, almost impossible - my fault I suppose!!??
Spoke with the owner to organise a booking for 6 last night, a special occasion. RM70 corkage for a special bottle of champagne, no worries can cope with that. Restaurant looks nice, and a good seating, they probably have 50 seats and it qwas quite full so good for them
Ordered a second bottle of champagne, an excellent white and a superb red, we were prepared to spend
Other than the fact we had to raise our hands and almost beg ever time we wanted our glasses refilled, the servers were quite good, it was actually a nice service experience
The food came out, all tables (not just us) were given a complimentary amuse bouche, nice. Appetisers were good, and main course nice too. RM70 for a Black Angus steak, I thought pretty good, until it came out and it looked about 4cm in diameter and about 100g at best, the night before I had a 200g black angus in Pampas on Changkit Bukit Bintang for RM90
We brought our own cake (which was superb - made by The Westin actually (naturally)) which was served as dessert, nice and then we ordered some digestives
All in all I do recommend the food but don't you think that given there are apparently 2 French chefs and the owner in the restaurant, at least one of them would come out of the kitchen and, in such a little restaurant, say hello to their guests - npope, not once, not a hello, not a goodbye, nothing
now if I owned a restaurant I think I'd take the time to know all my guests and at least have the common courtesy of greeting them at some time during the evening
that just proves, being a great cook doesn't necessarily make you a restaurater, shame, it would have been nice for some interaction with someone cooking (especially if they are expats) and perhaps there was even a daily special - guess we won't know
Well, we actually spent a LOT of money, food and beverage it was worth it, just haven't got the whole hosting thing right
I would recommend it though, an overall nice place
Sorry, I don't normally write these things but lots of people write them to us so may as well share my thoughts
