Papageno Restaurant

We visited the restaurant as part of the Telegraph Wine&Dine offer on Wednesday 29th November. I was thoroughly disappointed. Decor is meant to be ecclectic, but this seems to be an excuse to have old furniture draped in dusty crushed velvet (even the napkins were made from this material?!!) and to cover every surface with niknaks so as to avoid any need to clean. Food was mediocre at best - the lamb tasted like a cheap cut, and was definitely overcooked. I don't expect quick service when a restaurant is busy, but i do expect staff to crack a smile even if they can't manage friendliness! I would never dine here again, and would advise others to give it a miss too.
