How the scores work
I am not a professional restaurant reviewer (the Laissez Fare blog represents my first attempts), nearly always pay for everything I eat with my own money (if I don’t it will be clearly noted in the review), and try my best to remain anonymous.
My partner in crime is quite often my French wife (aka ‘Mrs. LF’) and her opinions are usually reflected in my reviews as well.
My food rating system can be found below:
- 1 – inedible
- 2 – very bad
- 3 – bad
- 4 – below average
- 5 – average
- 6 – good
- 7 – very good
- 8 – excellent
- 9 – nearly perfect
- 10 – perfection
Please also note that the numerical ratings do try to take into account what type of establishment is being visited (i.e. street food, casual, fine dining) and the numerical score is meant to be compared to similar types of venues.
The ratings are at the end of each review and are broken down into the following areas:
- Wine list comments
Any suggestions for how to improve this system would be greatly welcomed!
