“Not up to expectations”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

The Michelin Guide recommends the place but it looks to me like it had it good times a while ago. The meals are ok but nothing spectacular. The staff though is quite experienced. We were recommended a Rosé which was a lot cheaper than whate we wanted to order in the first place. The setting is nothing special. All the restaurants to the left and the right of Le Sirocco look the same. The owners seemingly have adopted a small kid who runs around the restaurant to the pleasure of its mother but not much of the guests. All gives the impression of "pretty aged" and nothing new. It's pricy for whatever reason. The dorade was handeld by a server who apparently lacked the knowledge on how to prepare a fish. Nice talk with the head of service but not a place to go back to.

“Over-priced, low-quality. Avoid.”
Reviewed June 10, 2012

We went to the Sirocco for a romantic dinner end of May '12. To cut the long story short, food was on the border of uncooked, staff was correct but not pleasant, and the bill was simply outrageous. 80+ € for an aperitif, a main course and a small bottle of white wine.

Tip: I rate the costliness of restaurants in Europe this way. I look for a simple, predictable item like crème brulée, and check its price. It usually comes at around 6€ per serving. Here it was 11€. Now, unless the restaurant makes its own crème brulée, this is the sign of a clear rip-off.
