Respond to Review of El Estragon Vegetariano
by Alex Bird
Review: Saw this was highly rated, and after a long search with a hopeless map, finally found the place with high expectations. To say we were dissappointed was an understatement. I always worry about small restaurants with big menus (can it all be fresh?) and I worry more about restaurants with burgers on the menu. My worries were spot on. What we got was a first course of soup, one flavour each, both of which were delicate and mild. But the mains were bland in the extreme. I ordered couscous with curried veg. What I got was boiled couscous with steamed veg, no sauce, no spices, no flavour. My partner odered a veg pie, and got what appeared to be 3 types of veg pate, no pastry, no other veg. Best bit was the wine - but wine glasses would have been nice! Overall not recommended, but we did find other super places - keep looking.
