Went on a Saturday night, arriving 15 mins early for a 10pm booking but there was a free table although all others were occupied. A very busy atmosphere & a huge amount of noise that we normally associate with the City Centre restaurant, not this one - but then it IS only 2 weeks until Christmas.
I think the full house contributed to the fact that our service was patchy - we had 5 different servers during our visit, and didn't get the feeling that any of were particularly attentive. We weren't offered bread, and were never asked how out food was even though we had 2 seperate orders between drinks.
Some new options on the menu, but prices seem to have increased from our last visit. My tortilla portion was disappointly small but nice (though not that warm) but the chorizo & black pudding was delicious and piping hot.
The sea bass was very oily & not that nice, and the mussels (a substitution for mackerel which was unavailable) were totally tasteless - seemed like they were cooked in plain boiling water then added to a bowl of sauce. Both dishes were eaten but only because the kitchen had closed & we knew that replacements would not be available.
This is one of our favourite restaurants & we will be going back I have no doubt, but this visit left us very under-whelmed unfortunately.
