“What a shame....”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2010

We drove into Szczecin with no idea of where we should stay or eat at, we ended up at the best ever hotel (Park hotel..already written a review) and unfortunately ended up at the worst ever restaurant… this one.
It looks lovely, lively with couples and families and great to be able to sit outside. It was also full up and quickly we realised that there we not enough waiters and waitresses, we should have left then!
We quickly got the menu but had to ask 3 times if we could order, every time we were told ‘yes just a moment’. Yes we should have definitely left then…
Seeing that it is very near Germany we did realise that it was probably why it was so expensive compared to ‘the rest’ of Poland. We had just been on holiday’s for 2 weeks, 1 week near Krakow and 1 week near Gdansk, no-where had we come across food with prices like the ones at Columbus. But as it was our last night on holidays we decided to treat our selves.
But the food was a extremely poor standard, meat was dry and tasteless, vegetables way overcooked and also tasteless. The only dish, of the 4 we had ordered, which was very much eatable was a plate of spaghetti, no sauce only grated cheese… so not too difficult to get that wrong.
To top things off we had to wait 25 minutes to pay… no I am not exaggerating here! I think that the waiter realised that he was probably not going to get a tip so when he finally came to our table he was suddenly not so friendly anymore… even more so when he definitely saw that he was not going to get one.
I was also not impressed with the floor manager who was barking our orders but just standing there watching us waiting to order and pay. I know that he saw us getting impatient, he was standing very close to our table but he did not even come up to us to say ‘sorry that you are waiting so long’ or anything like that…
In our 2 weeks in Poland we ate out once a day, either lunch or dinner and very much enjoyed the food, we averaged about 22 euro’s for 4 main courses and drinks.. what a shame that our last evening ended up being such an expensive and disappointing experience.
