I've been twice. First time had the steak frite which was quite good. Very tender steak, wonderful reduction. Frites were a little under cooked for my taste, but the accompanying aioli was quite tasty. Second time went on Thursday for the bouillabaisse. I was very dissappointed. The broth lacked any suggestion of pernod, saffron, orange rind. Basically, it tasted like pureed carrots mixed with a basic fish broth. But, for me, the biggest dissappointment was the rouille. No garlic, no saffron, no pepper. Just a bland, nondescript mayonaise-like sauce. Anyone else been?
