As per a great many people, we had booked to see the famous Moulin Rouge show at 9pm.
We arrived at the SB for 7pm.
We chose the SB, mainly because we’d seen negative reviews of the food at the MR.
I had the pork...belly with mash potatoes and my girlfriend had the steak w/chimichuri and the mash potatoes too (swapping out the frites with no problem at all).
Both dished were INCREDIBLE- we’re “foodies” and were blown away. Both meats were amazing and the mash potatoes put all other mashed to absolute shame. I literally could’ve eaten just the mash potatoes and I would’ve been in heaven. We fancied some vegetables that evening and couldn’t see them on the menu as a side dish, so we simply asked the waitress if it was possible and she said no problem at all and brought out a delightful vegetable assortment in a bowl for us to share along with our mains.
The waitress who was very nice suggested a white wine that we hadn’t ever tried, but turned out to be absolutely to die for.
We shared the crème brûlée, which was as light as air with a gorgeous caramel on the top as you might expect.
If you are in the vicinity or indeed are thinking of booking the famous MR, please do not hesitate for one second to eat here instead, you will thank yourselves for doing so!More
