Im surprised by the last couple of reviews for Le Gavroche. I was taken here for a surprise birthday meal and i found it to be really stunning and a great experience.
The place itself is very old school inside (the woman gets the menu without the prices and also men must wear jackets). The general atmosphere seems to be that of real wealth – we were the poor cousins! I started with the cheese souffle which was quite huge but actually every mouthful was perfectly light and airy so i didnt feel in any way stuffed. My partner had veal to start which he enjoyed. Our main was black leg chicken which was cooked in a sealed pot and quite huge but again, beautiful flavours which worked very well together. We ended up sharing an assiette of puddings which allowed for two helpings of each of the delicious puddings on the menu (rum baba, chocolate, tiramisu etc etc…).
Overall, my partner had agreed that though no course was particularly wow, they were all very good – however the service was outstanding. We were never made to feel out of place despite obviously being the poor people out for a treat! All were incredibly friendly and attentive which is why i gave them a 10!
Its the most expensive place ive been to – £180 for two people without alcohol!! However its such a lovely experience for a real foodie that id recommend at least going once in your life.
