I have been a great fan of Earth & Sea for many many years since its early days in Byron Bay, but something is happening and its not a good something. A recent Sunday lunch visit to the nearly deserted Coolangatta restaurant was quite dissappointing.
The service was extra-ordinarily slow (remember they were almost deserted). Only the one staff member wiling to serve tables while the rest of the staff seemed to disappear, either they have cut back on the staff numbers too much or the staff they have cut back on the staff quality.
The food however is the main reason you go to an Earth & Sea restaurant and usually I adore their pizza, but something is not quite right here either..they skimped on the toppings!! Aaaargh. You know what its like when a pizza is not topped all the way to the edge of the dough, yep that's right it bubbles up with just a smear of sauce. Its not a good expereience when you pay a substantial price for pizza and then feel you have been shortchanged a little.
For what is worth I hope this experience is a once off, but if it becomes the norm at the Coolangatta restaurant, don't say you weren't warned.
