Reviews and our friends had raved about the food here, which perhaps subconsciously had us raising the bar. Although admittedly, I am spoilt when it comes to French cuisine, so we were slightly disappointed as my escargots and sole were bland and uneventful even after I dressed it in salt. I also didn’t quite understand if I was meant to eat that soggy nightmare worthy piece of bread that sat soaking in the butter bath at the bottom of my escargot dish. What a shame, they were beautiful large bourgogne escargots that had so much potential.
Chef and the rest of the dining crew were luckier with their choices, a foie gras creme brulée to start followed by an oxtail dish—both rich, smooth and well executed.
I guess La Marmite is worth the try if you’re in central, décor simple and unpretentious, ambience is great and the background soundtrack very tasteful.
