Le Mercury, Islington

Described as French…ppppffh! We laugh in the face of this establishment. It looked quaint from outside, and the menu seemed good value for money. How I was wrong. Started off with Calamars Fris (Deep fried Calamari with tartar sauce), I was presented with what can only be described as miniature car tyres, overly salty and insidiously chewy. Suffice to say it went downhill from there. My girlfriend was visibly aghast. When asked by the waiter dude, how was the meal, she told him the truth. I can honestly say, the waiter missed the point, he just went on and on about the restaurant being there for some 30 years. Who cares! People stay away, food’s a joke, service was sinfully substandard. Remember cheap isn’t always good. I leave you with the following adjective: woeful.
