I don't like to give negative reviews but I was really disappointed in this restaurant after excitedly trying it out after hearing good things. After settling in the lovely garden, we ordered drinks. I was impressed to see Stolichnaya vodka on the menu and ordered one. After 4 waiter visits over the next 20 minutes which made it obvious the waiter didn't have a clue what I was asking for (pointed it out on the menu, explained in detail, was brought some brown liquor), opted for water which took another 20 minutes to come. Husbands food, the special, was edible but not great apart from the pudding which was good. Mine was interesting - 'open ravioli' which was basically a few pieces of lasagna placed amongst pieces of butternut squash was quite good but not what I was expecting. However, my daughters fish and chips were a bit of a disaster - the chips were really terrible. i have never seen her not eat chips! I tasted one and spat it out. I asked the waiter to tell the cook about that but got no comment back and was fully charged for the dish on the menu which I didn't think was good marketing. Daughter was a bit traumatised to see some workers carrying a grants gazelle upside down through the back of the garden. I went to find out what was going on and a worker told me they had to capture it because their fence was temporarily down. They said it had been put in a bathroom. I was concerned as gazelles should not be put on slippery floors as they can easily break their limbs but when I got back to the table the poor beast was careering about the garden looking for an escape. Perhaps a good idea to call in the experts when dealing with wild animals in future. We were told there were several such gazelle on the relatively small property. Given that the restaurant is located in suburbia, they might think about having the animals relocated. This restaurant has potential - train up your waiters - its a challenge to have to serve tables so far apart and make sure your cooks/front desk deal with complaints in the right way.
