This is an unusual restaurant experience. Firstly you have to Queue around the block in the hope of entering the hallowed ground and getting your hands on the meat treats provided. However the queue moves quickly and you can entertain yourself by watching the people on the rooftop gardens around the place, or imagining a mafia style turf war between the steak restaurant and the vegetarian restaurant opposite. For us it took about 40 minutes on a Friday night, however this made the job of finally stepping into the door the more sweeter leaving the people licking the windows remaining outside. When we finally seated we were taken through the procedure very efficiently. The choice is similar to the early Ford Cars, you can have colour you like as long as it a Salad for Starter and Steak and Fries for the main course. The Salad was fine but when we got onto the piéce de resistance we realised that we were in steak heaven. It was Excellent and when we first tasted it the table resembled the scene from "When Harry Met Sally". They give you a bit, you eat it and then they give you a bit more. You are allowed to choose your pudding, but this is not their focus. The wine was good and general London Restaurant Value. Would have marked as excellent, however one of the Waitresses (without us being shown where the cloakroom was) yelled at us for hanging the coats over the chairs because "she almost killed herself" by tripping over one of them. I did try to point out to the recipient of this scolding that this was the general French way (go to Euro-Disney if you don't know what I mean) and it probably wasn't that bad. But this had nothing to do with the French Maid's outfits that were being worn. Absolutely nothing at all!
