Part of a French brasserie chain, Flo stands for bourgeois cooking at its best, especially when it comes to classics such as steak tartar and its shellfish platter. It actually competes with its sister operations in Paris. A city first!

Had dinner here on my own whilst on a business trip.
Service was very poor - it took 10 minutes to get a menu, and another 10 to have my order taken. Having received the bill, it took a further 15 minutes to be able to pay by credit card.
The food was uninspired. I had an asparagus in filo pastry starter; the asparagus had been burnt slightly, and had very little flavour; the texture was rather tough.
The main course - duck breast - was a little better, but definitely nothing to get excited about. The duckbreast itself was nicely prepared - still pink in the centre, nicely tender - but the sauce was heavily dominated by the nutty flavours; the rest of the dish - rhubarb, a potato croquet, mangetout, and sweetbreads - didn't seem to hang together, and had little discernible flavour.
The Rembrandt Plein is a bit of a tourist trap, but within 5 minutes walk, there are many better options.
