La Bouille has a garden in front, perfect for a lovely warm evening, secluded from the street by a thick hedge. The service is pleasant and competent. A waiter quickly put a fresh napkin over a patch of spilled wine on the table cloth when I brought his attention to it.
The food is good solid french cooking. Rack of lamb perfectly rose inside and crispy outside, and served with a very garlic and cream/butter-laced gratin of potato, sautéed leeks. The fist course a lovely carpaccio of scallops and salmon covered in fresh chopped green herbs. The entre-act was an avocado and cucumber soup that left me rather indifferent, but the other guests at the table were quite satisfied with it.
The wines selected by the house were very good indeed. It was a fine evening, and you pay for what you get.
