Firstly - our server was brilliant. She was helpful, very friendly and we enjoyed chatting with her and her overall service.
Unfortunately, she was the only good thing about our dinner. We had just flown in and wanted somewhere close to our hotel. Appetizers were OK - but the main courses were awful. I had grilled chicken breast with mushrooms - chicken was literally incinerated, and the mushroom sauce tasted of charcoal as well. My husband ordered pasta, which was overcooked and stuck together like glue. We ordered a bottle of white wine - the bottle was cloudy, and when I mentioned that it didn't look right, I was told that the manager said this was how the wine appeared, but that it would be fine. I am no wine expert, but quite honestly trying to pull this one was stretching it to say the least. Needless to say the wine was undrinkable. They replaced the bottle, which was exactly the same as the first one. I told the waitress that it was obvious that every bottle of the wine was probably off and they shouldn't be serving it to anyone. In the end I just had a glass of wine.
I will never eat there again. We were told the chef was well-known and high quality. It was obviously his night off.
