Reviews of interest

Not Drinking Poison in Paris (2012) “I have so far described a middling, well-intentioned restaurant, remarkable mostly for its opening hours. But Glou is distinguished by its wine list, which, while suffering from the same overwritten quality as the restaurant’s menu, remains mostly natural, well-priced, and admirably broad in scope.”

Table à Découvert (2011) “Pour ma 3e fois ici, je réitère mon point de vue, l’adresse est bonne, le décor frais, contemporain, la cuisine gourmande…”

Les Grands Ducs (2009) “Un petit bonheur de simplicité et d’équilibre.”

Alexander Lobrano (2009) “… a lot of money for a feed where so little cooking had occurred. Yes, the produce was excellent, but cooking is a question of transformation, not plating.”

John Talbott (2009) “The place is nice, but you can’t eat nice…”

Simon Says (2009) “… l’adresse est simplement bonne, ‘sympathique’ comme elle y aspire…”

3 Comments on Glou

  1. I had the worst meal I’ve had in Paris here, and I don’t think it should be included on the same list as beautiful places where the food is amazing, like Verjus, Rech, and Semilla, to name some examples. The food had no flavour whatsoever, the lettuce in my salad was brown (also 16 euros for a salad with some lentils, quinoa, and romaine lettuce? Insane), and the bill at the end of the night was exorbitant for what we received. The only positive was that the service was good.

  2. I ate here a few months ago and liked it enough to return. What a disappointment! My starter of “poêlée de cèpes” was rubbery and tasteless. The main dish of pasta stuffed with autumn vegetables not only tasted uncooked, but the vegetables were completely flavorless. With half a bottle of wine, the bill came to more than 50 euros. The waitress did ask for our feedback and said she would let the cook know. She was very charming and amenable throughout the meal, but I left feeling that I could have cooked better for myself at home.
