Kiki's French Bistro

Kiki's, another restaurant just a short walk from the apartment, produced a mixed review from us. It was a good rustic atmosphere inside, cute little red car outside, and an endearing older french couple next to us, so it appeared authentic. We placed an order and it took forEVER to get our pate to get out to us to start with and then again it took forever for my Smoked Salmon Pastrami (with Brioche, Horseradish Cream, Red Onions, Capers) and Alex's Grilled Steak Sandwich ( with Roquefort Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato, Red Onion) to get out to us. All good without any 'WOW',  but we did notice something more important: we've completed ordered the wrong things. Everything else whizzing around us was Steak au Poivre or a du Jour item & beautiful looking mashed potatoes on every dish. The lesson was learned - get what everyone else (perhaps the 'regulars'?) was(were) getting.
Our huge (enough for 4 people) pate w/ two mustards, beats, + pickles and olives.

Date at Kiki's: June 9th, 2010
