Patara (Oxford Circus)

Went there last Saturday night for a dinner with some friends, our xmas meet up without the kids.

8.30, Upon arrival the staff were warm and friendly.. we were escorted to our table and all staff on the way said hello.. very nice.

Sat down.. waited and then ordered drinks.. no grapefruit juice.. not a real problem...then waited quite a while before they came up... they then took the meal order not really interfering with our choices, probably due to the fact we ordered most things from the chief's recomendations, 1 item was off the menu...

So Far pretty ok experience... didn't wait to long for the food.

Was impressed by the tastes.. think we ordered a good selection.. pretty small portions though.

Around 11.00 called waitress to order more drinks and she seemed a little shocked... had to go away and check !, last orders at the bar.

Then she came over and asked as we had finished our meal that the kitchen was closing and we had to choose straight away if we wanted a desert.. as we had only just finish our main meal.. decided against further food at this point.

Had a couple of bottles of wine and four cocktails... two courses for for was £60 / head !

Thought this was a little excessive.

Overall pretty good night out... felt a little rushed at then end of a saturday night. left restaurant at around 12.
