Went yesterday, Saturday night, June 21, 2017 @ 7 PM. restaurant packed and very noisy, Service good. Ordered bread & cournichon @$2.50, should have been free. Pickles were not cournichon but dill pickles. Bread was not heated and very ordinary. Butter was a tiny portion and tasted like it came from the local supermarket. We have had great home made butter in other canada restaurants.
First course asparagus with shrimp in a mayonnaise sauce. Asparagus are in season in Canada. We have had fabulous fat Asparagus for the last three weeks. The asparagus were thin overcooked. The tiny shrimp, which have been in every market, were frozen. There was so much mayonnaise sauce you had to scrap it off.
My wife had the cucumber soup with lobster. OK but not much lobster.
Wife had the trout. Totally overcooked SWIMMING in sauce. Thought it might swim off the plate.
I had the dorade(sea bream). Totally overcooked SWIMMING in a brown sauce that was too strong for the delicate fish, really poor.
The best however was the wine list.
We order a bottle of French rose that said it was from 2012. The bottle just said #12. That just means it MIGHT be from 2012 but could be any blend of vintages. Also it was just a generic bottle of French wine, from anywhere. This was not even from Provence. We had bought some beautiful young rose from Provence in the State of Canada store for $15 RETAIL. I assume this bottle in the restaurant was $10 to $12 retail. We paid $65 in the restaurant. The most OVERCHARGED I have EVER been for a bottle of wine.
All english speaking tourists in the place, no locals
Dinner was expensive
