Critic's review

Their loyal clientele is evidence of consistency. Highlights are, of course, the soufflés both savoury and sweet; bouillabaisse; hamburgers, and duck and cherry pie. (EO mag 2014)

    Had lunch yesterday, Sunday 20/10/13. We ordered fillet which was badly prepared and badly cooked. Béarnaise sauce was not good! Also tried the mussels in tomato, far too much minced garlic used. The Bouillabaise was prepared in a curry broth? Very disappointed!

    We had lunch on Sunday 14th July, Bastille Day. It was a superb lunch. All our guests enjoyed their meals. I had a grilled salmon, very juicy and tender. Absolutely delicious. Highly recommended restaurant. Thank you to Marc and his staff. We will come back very soon.

    We were so looking forward to our evening at Le Souffle given that we had eaten there several times at the old venue with all its wonderful bistro ambience and excellent food. Oh what a disappointment. From the "yet another N Suburbs upmarket restaurant (new location) with no bistro ambiance, to the mussels in tomato sauce starter ( where the tomato sauce was like something out of a can, to the "picture perfect to look at" souffles that were leathery on the outside and definitely not light and fluffy on the inside, to the miserable selection of vegetarian options (two I think!), where the pasta with tomato sauce seemed to use the same" tomato soup out of a can" as the mussels, the fishcakes that were inedible and the Thai curry that looked like some sort of unappetising brown sludge.
    On the positive side the steak was excellent.
    My friend mentioned our disappointment to the maitre d, who sadly did not seem interested.
    Subsequently I have spoken to three different sets of friends, who all had similar experiences. Don't think we will be back! What a great pity, as it was a lovely restaurant before worthy of the rave reviews.

    I would like to say that we enjoyed our evening at Le Souffle, having eaten there on many previous occasions, before their relocation. Despite making a reservation we were given a table by the swerving hatch, which had no reservation sign on it, in between two big parties of 12 people. We asked if we could be moved, but were told the other tables had been reserved. - but obviously not by us. I think the bigger premises might be their downfall. Needless to say as we couldn't talk or move we decided to eat elsewhere - a wise decision on our part.

    Uninspired and bland food with bias service - certainly did not meet expectations.
