We had a short trip to Paris so it was tight fitting in everywhere we wanted to go, however being a big fan of Amelie this was high on my list. Absolutely regret squeezing it in though, it's even put me off the movie somehow. The menu wasn't great so being vegetarians, we went for the only option, baked camembert. I wish I'd taken a picture of what was under the skin of the cheese as it was literally a pool of grease, the worst camembert I have ever had and the first and probably last for my partner! Under cooked potatoes which didn't taste much of anything and a limp salad. We could have coped with this however if it hadn't cost £50 for two with a couple of drinks! The toilets were absolutely vile, no seat, and utterly filthy. A small Amelie shrine next to the toilet which you couldn't look at as there was no room, and you don't want to linger in that loo! Even the sink was disgusting. The staff were abrupt and rushed us even though it wasn't entirely packed. I felt quite sad afterwards because what had been a dream for many years, could not have been more disappointing. Avoid. Cherish the cafe on screen, but don't visit unless you're prepared for the ultimate letdown!
