My hubby and I had dinner at La Grillade on Wed evening. We have eaten here several times before, but not for the past 3 years. Our expectations were high - this is not a cheap restaurant, but has a reputation for serving good food. Hubby ordered kidneys for a starter - completely overcooked and appeared and tasted like they had been cooked and then microwaved to warm up. They were more stewed than sautéed! The next disappointment was the Duck with cherries - the sauce overwhelmed the duck (there was so much of it), you needed a magnifying glass to spot the pieces of duck amongst all the cherries! Not pleasant. Hubby had a steak which was cooked very well, however it too was swimming in sauce. It would have been much nicer to have had the sauce in a jug on the side. The side dish of vegetables was even more disappointing. No potatoes (which would have been a good accompaniment for the steak) and the carrots were not al dente, just completely raw! Overall a very very disappointing experience and definitely not value for money. We won't be back in a hurry!
