Is it that standards of food have actually declined in France or is it just that the standards back in the UK have risen so much as to leave the French way behind.
Very few restaurants locally I regard as worth a visit. I've been here for more than a decade and it seems nothing has changed. The same menus, offering the same traditional French medieval faire. In the same disturbingly grubby places. And as for the service...... No, it's not retro, they were always like that. Aren't they sick of it? I know I am! So I no longer venture out to dine very much, and when I do, well it never fails to disappoint. Maybe it's regional thing? Probably not. How is it almost impossible to have nothing other than your particular region's "specialities" on the menu? We want choice, don't we? We don't want to, and shouldn't have to travel to Burgundy for snails or Marseilles for bouillabaisse, etc, etc.
They say "use it or lose it" well I don't think it would be all that great a loss, would it, really?
