Yes Moulin Fou is a very good restaurant. I can say that we've been there a few times as well and enjoyed all our meals. I would put this in the high end classification though for anyone interested in the cost. In my opinion Moulin Fou is worth the visit as opposed to the other high-end restaurants in Maho (except maybe Bajatzu).
Sorry to hear about your visit to the other restaurant. Being that I work in the restaurant industry in the States, it can really depend on the Chef that was working there at the time. It is very, very easy for a Chef to destroy a restaurants reputation all in one week...then be replaced by another that has to pick of the pieces of bad reviews. It's a very tough business and one many don't understand as all they see is the food coming out.
Philippe...I know you understand this. It doesn't matter what is on the menu...one bad Chef and his co-workers can make or break a restaurant.
If I were a newly established restaurant and had received good reviews by my critics, I would advertise my Head Chef on the outside of my place so that people would know that the food would remain consistently good. The Chef at our place is known by all it's Members. He is not hidden behind a door and makes appearances so that people can give their opinions directly to him, whether it be good or bad. Of course there are some days that he wishes he could stay behind the door but this is a good lesson for him and keeps him humble and also knows what's happening on the floor. He then knows he is the "make or break" part of the equation, that he is actually part of the restaurant and not just a paycheck, and so he knows his importance in the scheme of things which improves his self esteem as well. This makes for a better Chef.
Life is not a child's game of follow the Leader. Instead, life is more about finding one's own purpose in life....your life's plan, and then making a positive difference on earth.
