Cafe Qui Parle -- Disappointing

Simon | Jul 10, 2010 03:48 PM

Went there solo for was 9:45 on a Saturday...the inside only had two tables of customers...the outside was reasonably full but half of the tables were on coffee/dessert...

Had the cold asparagus soup w/ truffles: fresh and nice ingredients, but a bit underseasoned...followed by the grilld shrimp w/ risotto...shrimp were delicious and perfectly-cooked but the risotto was vaguely sweet and bland...and, for four medium shrimp, i thought the dish was grossly overpriced at 23 euros...

But the most annoying part was the wait for the food: it took them literally 30 minutes to bring me the cold soup! (with the waiter stopping by 3 or 4 times to tell me it's coming soon)...ridiculous...i won't be back...
