I last went to C’est Bon years ago with my family. We had a delicious Prix Fixé meal and it was a lovely evening reminiscing being in France for us.
It has certainly changed - for me the decor, ambience and staff were positives - but unfortunately the food/menu did not take me to France this time.
I’m now vegetarian - but did check the menu before going to make sure I’d have some options. There weren’t many on the night but my friend and I shared the zucchini flowers - nice - and the gnocchi with shallots, hazelnuts and fromage. It was quite nice - 10 pieces of gnocchi, several shallots and could def taste hazelnuts, but not the cheese. Zero garnish. Where was the baguette to mop up the sauce? We asked and there was none so were offered spoons. I decided to try the chocolate crêpe to at least finish on a french note. I thought I’d been given the wrong dessert! No resemblance to a crêpe. A slice of gluggy choc mousse, some chocolate ‘soil’ with a small quenelle of ice cream and some pieces of wafer. Guys if it ain’t broke don’t fix it!!!
If it says crêpe that’s what I imagined and wanted!! And please add the little touches like bread and garnish. Some changes are good but this won’t attract me back. A shame..... See less
... See all
