This place is again very popular and very hard to book – somehow I always go to this kind of restaurants. ^^; The most tempting thing that I read about this place is that the food is supposed to be very “macho”, mostly meat and large portions and great values. Some gourmet review called it “guys’ french”. The chef said something like, “I have no interest in anything other than meat”. So I was really keeping my expectations up….
Foccacia and tortilla. The foccacia was a bit too oily but quite nice. The Spanish omelette was served warm, very good too. Look at the big plate of stuff for 4, before we even ordered anything. “Let’s not order too much otherwise we won’t be able to finish”, “2 appetizers and 2 main dishes would be enough”, were what we thought. But then the first appetizer came….Coriander salad. My god it is so small!! It is quite nice but 1370 yen is not so worth it. Then the second appetizer came….Fried Trippa. It is not bad but very oily and the portion is so small again.
We chose roasted lamb and roasted pork to share. By that time we were giving up on the portion side, so when the main dishes came, which were not as big as we would like, we just tried to enjoy our share from each plate. The quality of meat was fanastic, no doubt of that, but each main dish costs over 3000 yen….and the one little piece doesn’t make an impression on me no matter how good it is. ^^;;
I was not full at all!! But we ordered 2 more rounds of foccacia, which was oily and filling. For desserts we ordered 2 Mascarbone cheese and Grand Marnier and coffee parfaits and 2 banana and raisins tarts. I had the parfait which was really nice, also small. We had a drink each and it came to 5600 yen per person – not a very good deal I think. But the taste was good, and I had a good time so, oh well.
