“Dreadful service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

It's rare to get such truly awful service in a restaurant. We waijust early half an hour just to get hold of the menu. In any other environment I would have walked out, but we had time to kill while waiting for our flight. The waitresses saw us but seemed willfully to ignore us. Not so the French diners, who were served. The attitude of the waitresses was also terrible. Of the rolling eye and shove things on the table while having one arm perched on a hip variety. The food when it finally arrived was really very good indeed, but there's no point describing it because we did not feel like valued customers in this place. My overriding sense was of an understaffed restaurant with poorly trained staff. What a shame, as the concept, location and food were all good.

“Excellent food in a surprising setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2012

We dined here at lunchtime for our Anniversary, not an obvious chioce of location considering we weren't travelling anywhere, however we had a lovely time and would highly recommend this restaurant. The service was very good, the food exceptional - living up to Michel Sarran's reputation, and the view of the runway is very interesting. Considering the restaurant is situated in an airport, the prices are not overly inflated; in our opinion they are what you'd expect for any restaurant of quality. And also, contrary to what someone else has written, the carpark fee is included, you just have to ask your server for an exit ticket...
