Respond to Review of Aquarius
Review: I was looking forward to trying Aquarius after reading the reviews on this site but I have to say I was a bit disappointed. We unfortunately arrived about half an hour before they were closing after lunch which may well have changed our experience. The staff seemed really disgruntled that we'd turned up, plonked us on a table and didn't even bother to refill the water jug that had been there from the last diners. The waiter (manager?) was english and talked down to us as if we were really stupid. There were some decent options on the board but limited choice for vegans. The tabbouleh starter was lovely but there weren't really many options for a main course. In the end the only thing I could eat was the chilli which was basically a big bowl of kidney beans with a tiny bit of sauce and a couple of chunks of fake meat. As for dessert there wasn't anything that was vegan (that they were willing to cook at the last minute) so I ended up with a bit of fruit. Not very impressed. I have to say the waiter did write down how I should explain that I'm vegan in French which was really helpful but other than that I felt as though he thought we were stupid. He told me I'd really struggle to eat as a vegan in Paris in a tone of voice that implied that it was stupid to even attempt it. We didn't get the chance to go back on an evening when they may have been friendlier without the time contraints but perhaps it may have been better then.
