Not our first time in this local restaurant.
We were four friends having a late dinner. We all had appetizers which were average (boar cake, salmon, gnocchi - very good and venison tartare). We also had a main to share, the skate which was good. Our mains were another issue: two of us had the venison tartare as a main (I'll come back to this), the beef bavette and the stuffed rabbit.
Wine suggestions were alright but not to our taste.
The tartares were not seasoned. I'm not a fan of over-salting at all, but these were flavourless. The waiter saw that we were not eating and offered to have them seasoned a bit more. He also told us that it was their signature to serve a venison tartare with little seasoning (as though venison was tasteless and salt not necessary). On the other hand, the beef bavette was over-salted as was the rabbit. Not good...
Now for desserts: two of us had the pear beignets, one cassis cheesecake and an Ile flottante. The beignets were undercooked, the cassis was bitter, but the cheesecake good and the ile flottante was good. We also had coffee (which was cold) and tea. I did not eat my beignets as I do not like to eat raw dough for dessert. I did mention this - politely - to our waiter who offered the following defensively : "sometimes it's not even as cooked... (and no one complains was the underlying thought)"
I would have found the meal average if not for the defensive comments by the waiter. When the bill came, we were all in agreement that it was an average to poor meal for the price.
Hopefully they will go back in time and find their spark again.
