Once in a while I just crave French food. I can’t explain it, I just suddenly get a taste for all things French, the evening I went to Elena’s L’Etoile was one such occasion. I originally booked via OpenTable and selected a set menu but on the evening itself we changed our minds and went for A La Carte.
My friend and I both went for the Pan fried duck breast with Bok choi, roast shallot, carrot and ginger puree, mild spice sauce. It was delicious but it would have been even better if it were a slightly bigger portion. Perhaps I’ve been spoilt by some of the other French restaurants I’ve been to in Paris or maybe I was just very hungry.
One of the best things about Elena’s L’Etoile is the interior design and ambiance, it really does feel like an authentic Parisian eatery. All the pictures of the celebrities on the wall amused us, there seemed to be a lot of Eastenders Cast members on the wall! We sat at the back of the restaurant which is particularly intimate and cosy.
The service was good, although there were a few “Fawlty Towers” moments, our waiter was very friendly, almost too friendly, he almost invited us to his wedding. It made for a fun and very pleasant visit.
I would definitely recommend that you pay Elena’s L’Etoile a visit, if only for the ambiance.
