Respond to Review of Sol Semilla - Le Bar des Artisans

Review: I went there because the reviews were very good, so I expected new interesting tastes and experience. The cafe is really tiny, there are only 3 tables which were already taken. A waiter offered me a chair at the table of 6 people, but I felt uncomfortable to seat next to people which I even didn't know. Yeah, that's Paris spirit! )) So I decided to order takeaway. I took a small plat du jour - €9, 1 milkshake - €4 and 1 blini €3. So together €16. While paying I talked to a man (cashier). He told me that they are always busy in the afternoon, they work non-stop and I don't need to make a reservation for the evening (their kitchen closes at 19-00!).Then I received my order. Firstly, I was glad that they think about eco stuff (cutleries were made from wood, the food box was kinda a thick paper) but....there was no bag to put my order inside! And I had nothing with me...There was a lady who entered 5 min after me to order take away, so I don't get their problem :/ U know, if it is raining, it would be a big problem to carry with ur hands. If they don't wanna use plastic bags, use paper, but offer smth! On my way I tried a milkshake. It tasted nothing. Some corn milk mixed with spices and carob. No particular taste, spices didn't melt so....For €4 I can buy in Paris a good fresh juice made from 3 fruits. And a glass won't be small. Waste of money. Food was smelling. At home when I finally opened a box, I almost became depressed...scanty portions...About the taste, well, I tried some really good and healthy food in other restos, so I can't say that one from Voy Alimento was bad. But it was not good. There was definitely a problem with cold starter-salad, may be it was an oil, may be smth else, it smelled badly and it tasted badly. Not impressed and completely unpleasant surprise. Another point, if they are selling rare food items and supplements, why don't they put some small description what is in your food. So I can notice and buy if I have an occasion. But you even don't know what you are eating, it's wierd. To finsih, "blini" was VERY tiny. I thought, no prob, may be the taste is wow. But it was not. I was told that it would be a dessert, but it had no particular taste, was hard, and there was like a salty nutter on it. Well, I was looking for a nice experience, and I didn't find it. I don't think I will return there. Everything was tiny and tasteless, plus overestimated and expensive. Plus I prefer to have my "own" corner or a table
