Description of my lunch at Le Quartier Francais
My lunch consisted of gazpacho with the taste and consistency of vegetable juice (R40). Please see my photo. It was served with good white bread (no choice as to what kind). With a glass of local wine and a single espresso, my bill came to R90, minus tip. My friends ordered a Caesar salad, which was “good” but very small, and a charcuterie platter, likewise “good”, likewise very small and with a meagre selection of meats which can be bought in almost any supermarket. Lunch was served on the veranda, just off the street. A series of street musicians entertained us and came onto the premises to collect money. For that reason I left the table during the meal to ask the restaurant staff to change a R100 note for me. They said they were unable to do so – without checking their till, the bar till, the hotel reception till or even their pockets – and directed me to the “supermarket just down the road”. Reader, decide for yourself whether it’s worth it.
