Le Passage had got a very good review in our travel book so we were keen to try it. Unfortunately the book was slightly out of date and the chef who had been reviewed had since moved on. We hadn't noticed when we went to book that it was on the upper floor of an all you can eat Chinese restaurant. Le Passage was arranged around a balcony which looked down into the two floors of the Chinese restaurant below which was very busy. The noise and smell of fried food didn't really add to the ambience but we decided to persevere. On arrival we were greeted by a very stony faced waitress and realised later the reason for that was probably because she was run off her feet. Running the service on her own. Good job it wasn't busier. We had booked a tasting menu which although a bit pricy we thought would be justified due to the excellent reviews. How wrong we were,! The food was beautifully presented but it was definitely a case of style over substance. Some of my food was cold and some flavour combinations were just plain wrong. Definitely an unforgettable experience- but for all the wrong reasons. Just don't go there!
