We have been to this Restaurant many times over the years but this was by far our worst visit. We had to wait 20 minutes for our drinks and an hour for our main Course. The Starter we ordered was not available. The food was very good when it finally arrived but when we asked for the Bill, we were told there would be a 20 minute wait ! The Staff were all really stressed and while I have every sympathy for them, at the same time, I had booked a Table for a special occasion which cannot be repeated, so the overall experience was very disappointing.
Good food. The restaurant was busy and the service was a shambles. We were told the main meal would take about 30 minutes. It was suggested we have starter. .Fine.that took 15 minutes. The olive oil was served up, but the olives and bread was served 15 minutes later. When the meal was finished. The waiters kept looking at the empty plates, but walked away. We were never offered the desert menu. Well trying to get the bill was another trial. Sorry, never again.
Lovely food, nice good atmosphere and friendly helpful staff. Nice wide selection and choice on the menu. For starters, mains and puddings. Plenty of room to sit. Comfy chairs to sit on.
