After having sampled the baked goods from the bakeshop, I was looking forward to sampling the food. I do understand that this is a training school for future chefs, however the prices that they charge cause a person to think that perhaps it is the chefs who are about to graduate that are cooking the food. Think again.....price in this place did not reflect quality!
Firstly, the ambiance is terrible. There was no music, dirty table cloths, the cutlery was spotted and chipped and the whole room reminded me of a hospital cafeteria.
The food started off strong, with great appetizers (fried camembert and vegetable soup) - not exactly hard to mess up. However, The bread was stale (very hard and dry) and the entrees were just terrible. At 22 dollars an entree I expected more than boiled pork slices with brown, tasteless gravy and a spoon of rice. The second entree was better, however seared halibut should be seared not cooked until dry and flaky. The dessert was even more disappointing. The offered a piece of poppy seed cake which was dry, tasteless and served with almost no chocolate sauce and hazelnut cake which tasted like mango gelatine. The servings were small and the food was less than mediocre - even for a cooking school.
The worst part of the night was the service. Our waiter took forever to serve us, never cleared our plates, spilled water all over the table and onto my lap and was unable to give us any product information. To make matters worse, they automatically add an undeserved tip amount to your bill.
In general this place is overpriced and disappointing to say the least.
