Group of 10.in a cramped attic space. Service frequently absent. Starters missing. Soup cold. Items missing off plates. Steak arrived with pasta side instead of potatoes. Foie gras dish with mushroom instead of duck spring roll. Sat at 8pm, mains served at 1030pm. 6 scallop orders ranged in colour from mahogany burnt to pale biege - all apparently correctly cooked. Felt like chef had walked out of kitchen and left porters to cook. A comedy of errors but not at all funny. Left stressed rather than relaxed. Memorable but hopefully the memory will fade. AVOID.

An unforgettable experience, some half of the items in the menu were not available, the wine was different to that in the wine card (2010 vs 2007) but, at least the prices were TOP level. Not to be recommended.

I was in Roissy for 3 weeks and tried many restaurants during my stay. We walked past this 'purple neon' place and vowed not to try it - it was always empty and with the owner strutting up and down outside it did not seem welcoming.
One day we decided to give it a try and it lived up to our very low expectations. The food was poor and expensive. It was difficult to get tap water and our bottle of cheap (but expensive) wine arrived pre opened. Bread was delivered as a back hand toss and plates dumped in front of us. Avoid at all costs.
