I have left behind my expectations of grandiose from Michelin starred restaurants a while ago. Today, in my humble opinion they are distributed like army brass and venues like Cilantro are the reason why I think so.
The menu displayed outside wasn't served in the restaurant that day. What a lure! Enticed with an interesting Mediterranean fusion at the door, we ended up eating traditional Arlesienne fare. Prices were outrageous for food you can find next door (without the star) for half the price. And nibbles were all but repeating themselves.
While eating main dishes the glass place mats make it so uncomfortable to eat, it immediately becomes a torture. To top it all, my main dish came up rather cold to be returned to the kitchen immediately.
The only positive in our experience was the sommelier and the wine selection.
One note: The picture on the wall showing a cilantro coming out of a fork is ridiculous, Michelin starred or not.
