I visited Rakonto after purchasing a deal on Wowcher. The deal included a pizza, a cocktail and a dessert. On arrival I was a little disappointed on the shabbiness of the place. There was a rather fusty smell! The service / staff are not particularly welcoming and friendly - not rude or anything, just more like they couldn't be bothered to be there. It wasn't very busy at all and you felt like you had to whisper. It took quite some time for our cocktails to arrive, given that there were only two / three other tables occupied we really couldn't understand having to wait 15/20 for a drink. The soft drinks are quite expensive for small flat coke. However, the pizza was delicious. It was cooked while we waited as you can see the kitchen is open from the seating area. Pizza came on a pizza board with our own pizza cutter / roller which we thought was a great touch. Dessert however was probably one of the worst I have ever eaten. Truly awful. Cheesecake, but tasted of nothing and had a very peculiar texture (we thought it was out the freezer from some cheap discount store). Overall, it was a cheap night out due to the deal. I would perhaps give it another go as the pizza was very nice but wouldn't bother with any starters or desserts.
