I suppose it is to be expected when big celebrity chefs build an empire and then leave it to continue their expeditions elsewhere. All that promise and expectation building inside you from the moment you book, to being seated at your table is laid to waste, at the end of another ordinary night.
In short, this was an average meal with struggling wait staff, cramped tables and sound levels reaching higher than a teenage house party at one point. Several hours later I failed to pinpoint where it all went a bit wrong but I'd say it was somewhere in the fish main, which was alright. Just alright.
We were on the coast, with fish fresh from the sea yet it was surprisingly the melt in your mouth chocolate fondant and a well suggested dessert wine (Mas Amiel, Maury) that stands out for me. I think that says it all.
