This was a truly awful experience. Like being in a bad 80s nightmare. The food was tediously dull and nose-bleedingly expensive. There was not one stand-out dish. The best were probably the amuse-bouche, and the cheese. The rest boringly predictable (truffles, foie gras everywhere), but really just not very palatable. Worst of all was the service. Smug and oily, ending up with outright aggression: I was remonstrated for ordering an Irish Coffee – “sir, you cannot 'ave a whisky coffee with this dessert, you 'ave armagnac”. Mmm – no. The atmosphere was redolent of what a 16 year old country snob would aspire to if they lived in Paris. Avoid. Go somewhere truly excellent like Atelier de Joel Roubchon, Marcus Wareing at the Berkeley, Angela Hartnett's Muarno, or Richard Corrigan.
