Just dont contemplate going there. It looks quite nice on the outside in a faux, chintzy sort of way. Inside its even more faux. We walked in at mid lunchtime service to find one table with diners. All other tables were empty. But the tables were bare so had to wait for a table to be prepared so we looked over the menu for 10 mins to decide what we wanted. Looks Ok we both thought.
My wife chose the fish Chowder. Sorry, there is none. Ok, well Ill have the Pork Belly she tried. Sorry there is none. Disappointed she asked if there was any fish other than salmon. Yes madam we have sea bass (not on the menu). How does it come? With mashed potato. Could I just have it with a salad?. No - it comes with mashed potato and you would need to order a side salad. Ok well ill have that then. I ordered the beef bourguignon. Much shouting and swearing in French ensued from the kitchen with occasional bursts of "Sea Bass" this and "Sea Bass" that. Finally the Chef appeared and apologised saying that Sea Bass was "a la Carte". And off he went. A La Carte? - what does that mean? - we obviously would have had to pay for it but no mention of cost just that it was a la carte. So 2 dishes on the menu we wanted were no longer there and the offered Sea Bass was taken away by a disgruntled Chef. OK well we will have the tortellini. Great and off he went. More shouting in the kitchen for the waiter to return saying they no longer had any tortellini. I mean, how hard can it be for a restuarant to actually give you some food? No tortellini but we can do Gnochhi. Right well lets have that. How can almost half the menu not be available during a largely empty restaurant? Maybe they could have warned us that half the menu was no longer available after we had pondered for 15 mins.
Gnochhi arrived; no hint of potato just a stodgy uncooked flour tasting mess. As for the alleged Beef Bourgiugnon - oh my Lord. No mushrooms. No shallots. Dry tough meat instead of moist slow cooked thickly covered in sauce unctious meat. Sauce was a see through watery, tasteless unseasoned gruel. There were some slices of onion and 3 cubes of carrot. A tablespoon of microwave re heated old potato mash with four baby tomatoes rounded off the dreadful dish. So much for french cuisine where a classic french dish lacked some of the moist important, basic ingredients (ever seen beef bourguignon without mushrooms?).
Take the menu with a pinch of salt as its meaningless as is the quality of whatever food they can cobble together.
