Visited here after reading reviews on tripadvisor and also the fact that my friend was keen to visit. Looking at the facade and the menu, it seemed there was some kind of Japanese thing going on, but I'm not too sure if this was the case. It seemed like there was a tapas theme there but with a 'modern twist'. No wait, it's not all bad.
Ok, we were ushered to the bar, not the restaurant, which seemed to be hosting some private event. The set up was pristine. We were presented with bread and olive oil, with a powder dusting which, personally, I thought tasted like rotten egg. Neither of us could ascertain what that was. However, bread and oil was good. We chose several tapas or half raccions. First up was a salad. This has to be the most bizarre thing I have ever eaten in my life: bed of lettuce, with cheese nachos and cream cheese with strawberries, raspberries, blueberries all smothered with a strawberry coulis. Not good. We also chose scallops, which had been finely chopped, put in a sauce and presented as vaul au vans. Other than that, the egg with honey fried aubergines was very good, the croquettes were also nicely cooked (shaped into balls, strangely) and presented.
It seems to me that they have a chef who has wild and fantastical ideas, and maybe no one wants to simply say no, but really, with a bit of restraint and a firmer quality control, this place could be a place to return to.
So, sorry about the average rating, there's no in between there and very good, but I would put it in that category if it existed. The fruity salad and the butchered scallops just let it down.
