Bistro Paul Bert -- two visits

Went there back in March and loved it: had the eggs w/ morrels entree and the cote de cochon (giant ham steak) w/ jerusalem artichokes and garlic, and a bottle of Bandol...went as a walk-in...was extremely happy with the meal, start to finish...

Then went again solo last night, w/ a 10pm reservation...a dreadful freezing-cold espadon ceviche that tasted like it'd been scooped out of an industrial size container: flavorless except for some bitter bits of peppers, this was airline-food quality ceviche...but the filet d'agneau was delicious: maybe the best red meat i've eaten in a year, but a somewhat small portion...the frites were mediocre...i had three wines by the glass: a C de Provence blanc was medicinal, the Bordeaux was decent, the Cotes de Rhone tasted like it'd been stored somewhere too hot and was undrinkable...i left vaguely annoyed and most surprisingly: hungry!...i actually stopped at a tratteur asiatique on the way home and had some nems de porc and a glass of vin blanc...
