"Exceptionally poor"

A review of Brasserie Gerard by Steve and Caroline written on Sunday 18th of November 2007


Possibly the worst meal I and my partner have ever suffered. My starter was a box baked camembert of supermarket quality accompanied by a miserly three biscuits and a similarly mean amount of crudites whose sell by date had obviously long since expired, although it has to be said that Caroline was quietly pleased with her goat's cheese. So far so good, however by now the hospital corridor ambience was starting to grate ever so slightly.

The mains arrived, eventually, namely navarin of lamb and a vegetable tagine. Oh dear. The lamb was overcooked,the tagine was poorly spiced and accompanied by a similarly overcooked, albeit mercifully small, prtion of cous cous. Both dishes came with a generous helping of slop masquerading as sauce.

Under sixty pounds, including wine, for two courses for two diners may appear reasonable, but in all honesty given the quality of the food, it was monstrously overpriced. McDonalds do the same standard far cheaper and in more agreeable surroundings. Oh, and charging for bread is plain mean. Definitely not on the list of restaurants that can be recommended to friends..
