Le Cinq Paris: damning review in the Guardian

damiano | Apr 9, 2017 03:09 AM

The Guardian's restaurant critic Jay Rayner wrote a terrible review of Le Cinq today. Please see the link below.

Just curious, to all the people here with experience eating in Le Cinq: is this justified?

What I personally find shocking is that apparently Le Cinq didn't allow Jay to use his own pictures, and provided stock pictures of the food instead. If you read the review until the end, you can see a big difference to how the actual food looked like, compared to the stock pics.

Also see his own website: (apparently out of order because of high traffic)
