We rented an apartment in rue Amelie and read reviews of chez perrot so decided at the last minute to go out for dinner. It was our first night in Paris and although very tired ventured out to dine. Unfortunately big mistake as wanted authentic French meal . I ordered the chicken flamed in cognac which noted was a traditional Lyon dish . Arrived on a huge bed of pasta ( hardly French) and was probably the worst roast chicken I have ever had . No seasoning at all . My son had the confit duck which was dry and salty and the potatoes were overcoooked ( in duck fat ?) and soggy not the least bit crisp! The only redemption was my husband was quite happy with the scallops but these were served with basmati rice ( once again hardly French ) . Overall would not recommend if you enjoy good quality authentic French food as this does not live up to the previous reviews! A huge disappointment for our first night in Paris ! We can only do better tomorrow or I'll shopping in rue cler and preparing our own french meal !
