We went there saturday the 30th of october.We were seven person and orderthe most expensive menu.N-but they havent even answer this mail.Trondormally we eat 3-4 times at michelin stars rest. La Broche should never have one star.It is the worst restaurant we have ever visit.Extremely bad service.The food was very,very tasteless.We leave the rest without having the dessert.The Sommelier was away-not enough staff and no excuse.We paid 1517 euros for 7 persons for a menu that was very bad.Some of the food we had to spit out. Believe or not. We send a complain but they havent answer.We spend 4 hours befor they started to serve dessert(at that time we left).

We went on a Saturday evening at 9 PM and there were only 3-4 other parties for the entire evening, which was surprising. Attached to the Occidental Hotel, the decor is minimal to the point of being sterile. The best part about the restaurant is that the staff is incredibly attentive, nice and welcoming. Good recommendation from the sommelier. The tasting menu was not as inventive as other similar types of restaurants. Overall, it was an pleasant meal, but not super memorable.

the staff were actually great in april 2010. the food was abysmal and certainly not worth 350 euro for 2 (not even worth 20 euro each). the food presentation technique was incredible, but there was ABSOLUTELY NO TASTE in the dishes. do not go...
