After the complicated booking procedure (telephone on 1st of the month before the month you wish to go, when the line is engaged for hours) and the excellent reports, we were geared up for a wonderful experience. The courses were of varying quality, some excellent (the ginger and chili sorbet especially), several good (fish, one of the desserts) and others disappointing (3 wafers of cheese, minute portions of meat, fruit dish of grapes and sliced apples). We chose the wine supplement and enjoyed the champagne and a couple of whites, then had an unusual white which several of us did not enjoy (but they still served it to us again with the following course) and were not impressed with the red. Several of our party chose the truffle supplement at 80 euros (for one course) and 150 euros (for one course and to have white truffle grated over the chicken course) which was not worth the additional cost. The staff were ok (wine waiter was very informative), but not particularly obliging, and some of our party commented on the tired decor (and the tatty gents' loos). While it is still worth a visit, if you want a 3 star restaurant in Paris, there are others which are much much better. In fact there are restaurants with no stars at all which are better than Astrance, or maybe we just hit a bad night?
