Restaurant details
Reviewed 2 July 2018

This venue has been in business for almost a decade and the chef has many years of experience. He and one waitress were running the entire front and back of the house the night we arrived at opening time to have dinner.
Salad was a promising start with truly crisp micro-greens and a simple oil and vinegar dressing along with a few herbs. My duck breast wavered; served lukewarm on the plate with a very scant serving of bits of roasted vegetables it was a dissapointment to say the least. My husbands beef and foie gras was better although served with the same scant side of vegetables. The beef was tender and perfectly cooked and the liver was cooked very expertly as well.
Desserts were good but again; servings are scant. Creme brulee is barely three teaspoonsful and served with 5 rather dry housemade (?) cookies. I would rather have a better serving of creme brulee for the price. Chocolate tart was heavenly but again- a sliver? Taking into consideration the cultural norm of leaving a meal when only 70% full, it was the first time in a very long time that I left a restaurant still hungry.
Service could have been better as our main dishes were rushed to the table before we had time to finish the salads. Plates were not fully cleared between courses and empty, used dishes should never be allowed to sit.
