Good food but way too much time between the courses: Restaurant Huber (8. February 2020)

| March 12, 2020 | 0 Comments

The restaurant Huber was recommended to me by the “Guide Michelin 2020” app and given I have – to a large degree – made good experiences with it, I decided to also give it a try this time. I went for the “four course tasting menu” (EUR 79.00) and the “wine pairing” (EUR 39.00). The evening started in a nice setting in the back room which is rather small and which can hold about four tables. The service was friendly and dedicated. Dinner started with “cooked cauliflower with katsubishi” which was quite intense in flavor but absolutely enjoyable!

The first course of the actual menu was “tuna, avocado, sesame, shiso” which looked tiny but was actually quite good in terms of how smooth and flavor-intense the tuna was and the reduction of avocado and shiso added a hint of different flavors to it.

Then, the ultimate waiting begun! I had to wait a solid 53 minutes until the next course which was not that complicated in preparation, i.e. “agnolotti, corn perigord truffle, Belper Knolle” was served. Frankly, I liked the course a lot but waiting 50+ minutes for something like pasta is just not reasonable in any scenario! I am pretty sure they had forgotten or mixed up something in the kitchen but it is just way too much time to actually get a pasta dish!

Another 39 minutes later, the main course was served – “lamb, back, navette, cipollini”. Again, almost 40 minutes is just too much. I don’t know what was going on in the kitchen and the service and I cannot judge if that’s always the case or not but I really hope – for the restaurant – that it isn’t always the case as the waiting time just is beyond acceptable! The lamb, to be fair though, was absolutely delicious! It was a generous piece of meat and the jus / reduction in which it was served, was absolutely mouth-watering. So, yes, good food takes time but it is just too much time right there!

Between ordering the cheese and getting it on the table, another 20 minutes passed. The selection was decent but nothing spectacular. And I don’t get why you would need 20 minutes to prepare a board with four different slices of cheese – it really can’t be that difficult.

The “petit fours” in the end were nice and tasty to finish off the dinner.

Now, all in all, the Restaurant Huber creates a nice experience but the fact that you have to wait so damn long between the different courses is clearly unacceptable.
