We used one of their promotional coupons so we whipped that out as soon as we were seated. The friendly waitress informed us of the terms and conditions to which we were happy with.
Decided to order the Fruit de Mer excluding the lobster, a shrimp and chorizo linguini, fish of the day (sea bass) and a bottle of white wine.
The bread and wine arrived first, the bread very soft and warm. The wine was lacking in taste but that was down to our own choosing- Tourain, Sauvignon Blanc (2011)
The seafood platter included some delicious oysters but that was the extent. Everything else was either tasteless or too salty.
The linguini and fish arrived together once our table was cleared and hands down- the seabass was nothing if not divine. Cooked to perfection, crispy skin, juicy flesh and wonderfully fresh. The linguini al dente, the shrimp slightly overcooked but overall not bad.
For dessert we ordered the tarte tatin, and the mascarpone (because we're greedy.)
With a 30min waiting time i usually dont bother, but oh wow was it worth the wait! The crispy, chewy pastry wrapping the sweet and tender pieces of pear went down famously with the whole cream that accompanied it. Already very full, we did not have trouble finishing that.
Overall, a satisfactory meal but given we had a hefty discount, the price we actually paid was the maximum I would have been willing to pay. A great atmosphere, staff and good food but I would not say I'd willingly pay full price there next time.
