How this place could manage -and still get the TA rating is totally beyond my comprehension! We had dinner as a family and because of that , opted for the euro 29 menu. We should have seen the warning lights when we turned up for our 8pm reservation and being the sole patrons whilst every other place in the vicinity were more than half full already -( only later on a few tables were occupied by locals - 6 to be exact in a 80 seater reataurant) - The public knows! Anyway - with a very limited selection of the obvious cheapies on the menu(except for the Foie gras) we settled in for what we expected to be a nice relaxing family evening. That was till the food arrived!
Starter - Jambon crudo - just served like this on a plate - totally unappetising. Eggs with mayonaisse - Just so so , Coarse pork patee- forgettable! Biggest disappointment however was the foie gras main course. Tasted TERRIBLE - like old rancid bacon in an aspic!!!Not at all like any dish like this should taste in a French bistro! I recon that was the stuff they should have thrown away ,but gratefully palmed it of to someone stupid enough to order a menu! The duck with honey sauce - OK-ish but ate much better at same price within 200m from Aux Crus Bourgogne!.The only twinkle of light in a otherwise very dark culinary experience was the caramel butter ice cream which was divine!
I agree - we could have eaten like kings from the a la carte, but at exobriant prices! Will NOT go there again!!
