Naked Turtle

I live near this restaurant and read lots of interesting reviews so thought we'd give it a go. We went on a saturday night and got there quite early, there was already a party of 10. We waited a long time to order a drink and when we tried to order some red wine they had run out of everything except the house wine! Good start...

Our waitress unfortunately was polish and when we asked for the specials she couldn't help us and kept having to send her colleague to serve us- seems bizarre to employ someone who can't actually take orders.

The food was very good, menu is restrictive, but it's very fresh good, very nicely presented and very tasty. We had calimari, Chicken and the most yum chocolate desserts. I have to give them 10/10 for the choice of desserts- and all amazingly presented.

The singing and painist were great and one waitress was lovely and attentive, the rest just stood around and didn't do much- a bit strange

Ordered a drambui after dinner- they had run out!! Ordered a grand marnier instead- got a coffee!!!!

The atmosphere is good, food is good, but service not good and lack of alcohol is ridiculous.
