The view, decor and service are impeccable, but the food was very disappointing. The signature duckling was merely grilled duck breast, without sauce and accompanied by over-boiled unseasoned vegetables and leathery slices of truffle that added no flavour whatsoever. The plate was decorated with three blobs of a thick brown sauce that tasted like bottled BBQ sauce; the same three blobs of brown sauce that was inexplicably also on my appetiser, scallops tartare. It reminded me of hotel food in the 90s. The rich history of the restaurant and the beautiful view are not enough to recommend visiting La Tour d'Argent. For me it was all pageantry and no performance.
