Respond to Review of Gentle Gourmet Cafe
by Mad Hatter
Review: After reading all these great reviews I was so excited to eat there, I imagined it to be a real gourmet restaurant but what we got wasn't even mediocre. The atmosphere is really nice, the stuff is slow but friendly but we went there at a bad day and they told us, that only 4 (!) meals are available because they couldn't prepare the others. There was no meal I would consider to fit in a "gourmet" restaurant. We chose 2 burgers, what isn't really gourmet food but I really hoped that it will be something special. My moms burger was really a like a bad joke, just a bun with 2 portabellas and very little sauce and onions, some french fries and bit lettuce. The portabellas tasted strange, a bit bitter and the consistancy wasn't as usual. The french fries where not crunchy at all and the salad dressing was bitter, too. Please imagin that we payed 14€ for that! I had the same salad and frenh fries, but my burger was better, not really tasty because they do not use that many spices, but okay. It was made with lentils, so the petty was soft just like mashed lentils with some onions, mushrooms (that tasted strange, too), homemade nut-cheese and a tomatoe. The cheese was really good and tasty, but over all it was disappointing and not worth the price. We got free wather to our meal what is great in general, but it had a very strong chemical-plastic taste, so I couldn't drink it. I really wanted to like that restaurant, but I can't, maybe our worst experiance in Paris.
