Vapor restaurant was pretty much in line with the rest of the hotel: wonderful views, excellent location, but very poor execution. The ingredients used in the food are pretty good, I must say so. But, the chef should definitely improve the execution if the restaurant wants to be worth of the 75 euros per person we payed.
We started with two oysters, which were delicious. No secret to fresh oysters. But, I have to say the quality was excellent. We then had scampi with avocado, and St. Jacques (scallops), and that is where things started going downhill. The scampi was good, but the avocado that went with it was nothing but a rather simple guacamole. The scallops were not very tasty, probably because they were overcooked. Then came our main dishes: lobster, and John Dory fillet. The lobster dish was pretty much a joke (a joke that costs 30 euros). It was a very small lobster, with no claws (what ever happened to the claws?), buried in a ton of tasteless black pasta. Really, if the pasta would at least have been any good... The John Dory fillet was excellent, but disgraced by a really bad risotto. I like risotto, but this one I could only have a couple of bites before (literally) starting to feel sick. What a pity. I did finish the excellent fish though.
We had a chocolate souffle for dessert. It was pretty good. The best of our meal, according to my wife.
Overall, a pretty disappointing experience for the 150 euros we paid. Not even the views could make up for the unfortunate culinary experience.
