“Horrible Tourist Trap - Avoid!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2011

I stopped here for what we thought was going to be an early dinner w/ drinks before. It was 6:45, very early by French standards.
We were shown to a table and given an "english" menu w/ nothing but price fixed options. We waited and waited and just as we were going to leave, a waiter approached. We ordered a carafe of wine and when we tried to order an appetizer/starter, we were told that the cook was on his break (and so were all the waiters) and we could have food "later."
This did not sit well with us.
The wait staff (when they emerged 30 minutes later) were a shifty lot.
Bottom line: tourist trap, creepy and terrible service.
