An Afro Parisian bistro with a celebration of colour, relaxed, animated atmosphere and great food. You could be anywhere in Africa. It's whimsical, eccentric and a good expression of chef/patron Shave Sauvage's creative flair. It's a unique balance of clever and good food, wonderful music (great African jazz and O'fado from East Africa), wine (excellent wines from the smaller estates) and spirit (groups large and small seem to be genuinely having a good time). There are borrowed ideas, ingredients and flavours from all over Africa, with a touch of European influence.
We went to the restaurant for a very special evening - and special it was. First of all, I had to sit with my feet in water (place was not checked properly after the rain of the previous days). This was only corrected after I had to get up and show the cleaner who was sent to clean up, where the water was (although I had shown the manager where it was wet).
After putting in our order, the big wait started. We were issued with various new knives and forks, every time hoping this is in preparation for our actual food.
After about an hour and a half, the waitress came to tell us that the chef was now only adding final touches. After just under two hours, at last: FOOD, which was nothing to rave about. Pretty average.
The restaurant was crowded and I suppose the manager (or whoever) overbooked, as they could (can?) obviously not cope.
Our first and very last visit to this restaurant.
The menu is out of this world. They cater for everybody. Wine list is the best i have ever seen. service is great. There is no word in the world that relate to there food. Management can be rated as a 6 star.Wil go back as soon as possible.
