Lunch at Murano today, what a disappointment. It is so old fashioned and not in good way, rather the kind of food you might have found acceptable in the 80’s. Just not a gourmet experience. We were really glad we decided to go for the £30 set lunch and not the overpriced tasting menu.
We started with fairly ordinary bread with a good olive oil and some charcuterie. Then a Chicken Ravioli that was too salty and a rather ordinary beef carpaccio. The main courses consisted off a coronary inducing calf liver, with capers in a red wine jus with mash and a salmon dish decorated with pea shoots. Pre dessert was Tiramisu and dessert was a peanut butter crumble with caramelized bananas – very uninspiring.
The wine list was disappointing too, the mark up did seem to be excessive. It was difficult to find a decent glass of wine for less than £14.00.
It was so hard not to compare the Murano experience with our recent visit to Texture, which just served to emphasize everything that was wrong with Murano.
Overrated and based on our experience, cooking that is not of a Michelin star level. Another Faux Gourmet experience in a restaurant that looked the part but failed to deliver.
