I last went here 3 years ago (and wrote a reasonable review about the place). However this visit was a nightmare. First problem was that despite having made a reservation that morning, by the evening, the reservation had been lost, and my party of 7 had no table. So we were shoved in a corner by the bar, rather than in the atmospheric dining room.
The service was slow (potentially by the fact they had these 7 extra covers). When my starter arrived, squid salad, it was un-edible, the squid was completely undercooked. At least my companions were okay with their starters.
Then came the main course. Or I should say it didn't. Three dishes arrive, but no cutlery, and four dishes were missing. We waited 5 minutes with no sign of waiting staff, nor cutlery nor dishes. I tracked down the restaurant manager and gave him a piece of my mind.
To his credit the manager came and profusely apologised. The order for the 4 "missing" main courses had been lost in the kitchen. We therefore had to wait a further 25 minutes for the missing dishes to arrive. The manager waived the entire bill for the food and apologised again at the end of the meal.
I might go back here for a drink, but the evening was such a disaster, I'm no sure I would risk another dinner.
