In search of a nice place to eat on a Sunday evening, we were strolling on Paseo Montejo ( a street with many restaurants). It was our misfortune to choose this place. Dining alfresco would have been nice as it was a beautiful evening and the setting looked inviting.
To our amazment their food selection was very limited. The wine selection was way over priced and none of the wines were chilled. Someone needs to tell the that white wines are suppose to be chilled. We ordered an app and a margarite pizza along with a bottle of chardonnay. The wine was brought to the table and immediately opened and poured for a tasting. We told the waiter to let it sit and chill for a while. As we were not shown the bottle when it arrived I asked my friend to check and see if it was the chardonnay we had ordered. It was not. It was infact a much more expensive bottle. We brought this to the waiters attention and again pointed to the wine we had ordered. They brought the less expensive wine ( also very warm).
Food: Our appetizer was nothing to write home about. Over toasted bread, large chunchs of tomato and raw garlic sitting in olive oil. The pizza looked less than appetizing ( no slices of tomatoes, lots of cheese and only a few small basil leaves scattered here and there).
The check came and they had tried to charged us for the more expensive wine which we sent back. We were able to get the check corrected. However, it really put the final damper on the entire evening.
Would we go back????
Not even if you were paying for it !!!
