There was noone at Reception to welcome you, we managed to find the resteraunt where a man acknowledged us after a chat with his colleague. We were shown to a table and given the menu.
We decided to go for a starter and a main.
The Melon was delightful but then you can't really mess up melon - can you?
Main meal was distinctly average but still ok. The changing of the waiters really spoilt the evening as the initial pleasant chap was then replaced by an older gentleman who had no interest whatsoever in his customers - He seemed incapable of standing vertically and was often seen supporting the bar.
wondering where our original waiter was we wanted another drink, yet with no chance of a waiter in sight and with a bar that needed proping up, my boyfriend undertook the task of ordering drinks. * cue dramatic music * , after asking for two glasses of water he was told " we don't usually do that, because its our water and our glasses and it doesn't make us any money" my boyfriend was appalled seeing as it is a mandatory requirement to serve customers with tap water. not too much to ask seeing as we had just ordered two courses by now. needless to say we didn't order the third. Oh and my boyfriend had to carry the water back himself rather than them saying we'll bring it over to you. this transition in waiters really killed the evening.
After mustering the strength to remove himself from propping up the bar, which presumably now was supported to the original structure, the second (older) waiter saw his oppitunity to ask for any more drinks/ orders, though i was tempted to ask for more tap water, but it had obviously been a lean summer for him. We asked for the bill after my boyfriend saying " so you finally saw us then did you" to which he shrugged off the comment and obviously felt tectonic plates moving as the bar was going to fall down.
we were given the bill, we had exact change, waited 2 minutes, saw the waiters having a conversation, and decided to leave, money on the table and out the door, safe to say, no tip was given.
The only tip we can give you is, if you are hungry go there, yet don't expect great service.
