I don't normally write reviews but after dining at this establishment twice in a matter on months i felt i had to break with tradition. This first time i went here with my family, we spent three hours in the restaurant and only had two courses along with copious bottles of wine to relieve the boredom of waiting! Cofffee was put on hold to have at home!
I went there again for lunch today with my father. I was already sceptical after the last woeful escapade but i thought a quick lunch would see them in a better light. Far from it....
We arrived and were greeted by a surly waitress who spoke little English. We sat down and ordered a glass of wine, a lemonade and two glasses of tap water. She then, after 5 minutes, returned to say she couldn't remember which type of wine we had ordered! We then told her and then after another five minutes the wine, lemonade and one glass of water appeared.
To eat we both ordered the lamb stew off the specials board only to be told that they had run out! So instead we ordered a platter of charcuterie and two gravadlax - all to be brought at the same time please. After a fairly short wait a basket of (warm! - only good point in the whole event) bread arrived with the charcuterie. All perfectly palatable except some rather ancient looking spam!
The waitress then brought us two beers which we hadn't ordered! Next she cleared our plates and then arrived with a plate of cheese?! We then questioned her and she said i thought you said cheese platter and not gravadlax! We sent this back only for her to return a few minutes later saying the chef ran out of gravadlax last night!!! At this point we gave up and said could we just have the bill!
To add insult to seriously underfed stomachs she had charged us for the two 'beers' we never ordered! Not even Fawlty Towers and dear old Manuel were this incompetent!!! AVOID!
