Le Saint Julien

Went to Le Saint Julien on a friday night for dinner and was pretty unimpressed.

As described in other reviews the service was erratic, at times over bearing, at others impossible to get hold of anyone.

Starters of snails and country pate were passable, mains of steak frites were disappointing - the steak was cooked as requested but the meat was of poor quality. The advertised frites were actually chips and were overcooked (how hard can it be to get that right ?), bearnaise sauce was unavailable but the substitued pepercorn sauce tasted of very little.

Another small irritation was the combination of very small tables with huge crockery and glasses - drinking your wine during the main course required an elaborate rearranging of all the items.

We went on the 50% off offer, wouldn't of been at all happy paying full price. There are far better places to eat proper french food.
