The three-course dinner began with a salad composed of lightly pickled celeriac, fried mushrooms and bitter greens like rocket and radicchio. The main course was a potato-coated pork served on savoy cabbage and bacon in clear gravy. We finished off our meal with a berry terrine clad in marzipan drizzled with milk foam.
Too bad the portions were rather small, the cabbage overcooked, and the main course left a lingering taste of Maggi bullion cube in our mouths. For €30, not including wine (two reds and two whites at either €4 or €5, bottles for €13 or €19) or water, we were not impressed. But if exclusivity and ambience are enough to feed your hunger, and you’re after a nice glass of wine in gregarious company – Parlour will hit the spot!
