Tucked in a small street near the Seine River, la Bonne Excuse is a perfect restaurant if you're looking for a quiet restaurant with original food. The foie gras, served with fig flavored bread was excellent. The monkfish with fennel and strawberries as well, with the strawberries bringing some welcome acidity to lift the dish. The fennel, a mix of cooked and raw could have been minced a little thinner, not for the flavor itself, but to make it easier to eat. The chocolate cake, a real fondant was delicious. The food is made locally and it shows. A see-through window over the kitchen is also interesting.
Very nice service, friendly, but not overly so. All in all, an enjoyable evening in a frie^ndly place. Perfect for a romantic evening.
