Marco Polo on the River

Went last night, they were obviously short staffed and it showed in a bad way. We were seated promptly but then waited 10 minutes to order drinks, which then took a further 15mins to arrive. Surley a Ricard and a Peroni shouldn't take so long?!

The food was distinctly average, We had salmon which was over cooked and chicken breast which was boring, the side dish (carrots in orange juice) came out a good 5 minutes after the meals. We regularly had one waiter come up to us with the wrong food or drinks only to be shouted at by the only man who knew what he was doing. All in all it was a dissapointment but with 50% off who'd complain? I'd like to go back as i hope the bad service was purely down to a combination of short staff and good weather (the outside terrace was full).
