Unmemorable meals in equally forgettable surroundings

  • az.u.r
It’s a sorry state of affairs when a restaurant singularly fails to stand out for anything at all. And you can’t help but feel for Azur in this respect, because indeed, though nothing is awful, nor is anything excellent. It is singularly unmemorable. From the generic interiors to the lacklustre menu, which has been revamped of late, there’s little to be dazzled by here. Event the outdoor terrace feels like an afterthought, with little effort made to beautify, or distract punters from the neighbouring construction plots. Where once Azur offered spag bol and pizzas, it now offers a more focused, Mediterranean-themed menu with more upmarket-sounding options such as ‘antipasto di bresaola con pane carasau’ as well as grilled dishes, tagines, and a provencal milk-fed veal short ribs dish. The latter arrives with a ‘herbed organic white bean polenta’, which though it may sound appealing, turns out to be a flavourless lump. It’s also worth steering clear of the grilled dishes, as the chefs seem a little heavy-handed with the cooking, and the cuts, whether chicken or beef, arrive bone-dry and cooked almost to the point of incineration. If by some misfortune you find yourself here, the meaty crab cakes are your best bet. At least, we think they are. We can’t really remember. az.u.r

    It has a really nice terrace with a great view at night, which we liked very much. But for dinner we were seated indoors and were unfortunately disappointed. There was a heavy and greasy smell all around the restaurant which accompanied us all night long and the service was very very very slow, although the staff was very polite and friendly. I guess the place is good for shisha and the view. But for dinner I would definitely not go back again. The food was ok but not worth the price.

    horrible. ditching the organic philosophy was an unwelcome disappointment. we were the only ones in the resto, and despite this, service was shockingly slow. but it was the food that disappointed the most. they need another reboot, or simply to get the boot.
