On arrival in Nancy, we were advised by the hotel staff to eat inthe place Stanislav but to avoid the two restaurants whose names both began with the letter "C". Of the two remaining, we chose Cafe Fo (featured in a Daily Telegraph review). It was the wrong choice.
To be clear up front, I do not eat meat but do eat seafood. Bpth my wife and I decided to go for. the fixed menu with wine (€43 per head). For starters, I took the smoked salmon, which was very average (that was being kind).Vlearly came straight from a low qua'ity supermarket pack with a bit of olive oil and creme fraiche thrown in, my wife had the foie gras which again was very average (and quite hard, apparently) although the accompanying fruit coulis and cohsen wine were good.
For main course, I chpse the cod, which was basically a posh version of a boil in the bag cod piece with vegetables. Utterly tasteless and very boring, not even accompanied by a sauce. My wife had the stak - served 'bleu' - which was apparently very good, although the accompanying vegetables were of the same ilk as my whole main course. Choice of wine for this course were also very mediocre.
For dessert, we both chose creme brulee, which was served cold, but was very tasty.
Service was typical Parisien - brusque, unfriendly, food almost thrown at you and since service was included she clearly wasn't interested in any tips - which was just as well really.
Overall a poor experience for what could have been a very romantic meal in a great setting.
