Having visited this restaurant 2 years ago and found it outstanding, we were really looking forward to eating here again. We booked a table for Saturday evening and arrived around half an hour before our reservation as recommended, hoping for a drink in the courtyard , we weren't offered this and shown straight to our table . The staff were attentive and the restaurant busy but lacked atmosphere. It was very quiet and it felt awkward to have a conversation, background music would have been good. The menus came ,along with a couple of amuse Bouche which were both fish and disappointing . We were expecting like last time a lovely menu but again disappointing, a very limited choice!!
We have eaten in many fine dining restaurants and accept that an extensive menu isn't always good but a few more choices would have been better for us.
The food when it came was ok but nothing exceptional, and we have eaten far better for less. The food was salty and bland and lacked flavour. The desserts were awful and we couldn't wait to leave . We paid the bill which for what we had and tasted was expensive and overrated.
We ate at L'Hirondelle and Le haute de vile also on our trip and they both were fabulous and excellent value for money and definitely ones to return to . Don't always go by the number one rated restaurant as in our opinion it was the worst.
