My partner and I decided to try this bistro after having a wonderful dining experience at "de carre", a few doors away from "Cafe Francais". What a mistake we made. On a positive note, the waiter's offered a good service. And now for the important stuff. Do not visit this restaurant. The atmosphere was depressing - no laughter, no conversation happening around us. The decor did not cheer me up either. Equally depressing was the music playing that made me want to put an end to my misery at this place. My immediate instincts told me that the food would not make up for its surroundings. How wrong I was, as the food was even worse than I imagined. My partner tried to remain more optimistic than me but eventually gave in by the second course. Neither of us could eat our main meals. The starters were poor but as we had already ordered the main meals and wine, we stayed to continue the course. However, as already stated, we could not eat our main meals. They looked absolutely awful and taste was diabolical. I had dover sole. It was supposed to be pan-fried and filleted, but it was not. Instead, it was soggy and full of fish bones. We decided not to continue to eat our main meals as we both felt that we were likely to be sick if we continued with the course, and asked for the bill and left.
