Paul Bocuse

Last week we were in Lyon to eat at the 3 Michelin Star restaurant of Paul Bocuse. At the beginning of the evening Paul Bocuse's wife greeted diners at their tables, which was sweet. The decor was very opulent:
The amuse bouche was delicious:

As was the foie gras:

And beef with porcini mushrooms:

The deserts came with complimentary creme brulee:

And the floating island is made the way Paul Bocuse's grandmother made it:
The petit fours had to be smuggled into my handbag because I couldn't fit them in:
My favourite dessert was the fresh raspberries with sorbet:

Chosen from the crowded dessert trolley:
The cheese trolley was also quite extensive:

Overall, the experience was not quite as good as I expected, particularly the somewhat aloof waiters.

Good lord, so much food! Excellent work on the smuggling!

And as for the waiters, you should've just done an Eddie: "You can drop the attitude, you only work in a 3 star restaurant"..
