Not a very friendly welcoming place. After our group of nine (five adults, two teens and two children) ascended the stairway and entered this petite restaurant, we were met with a veritable barrage of excuses for why we should probably try somewhere else; from (a) we are a private club (that was news to us); to (b) it will probably be about one and a quarter to one and a half hour wait (the restaurant was about two-thirds empty); to (c) we can seat you on the deck (outside in the heat and humidity under very threatening storm clouds – where no one else would likely want to sit anyway, and we can’t hear you); to (d) we only have one chef and two cooks, and the chef prepares all dishes individually, so it will take a while; to (e) maybe you should look through our menu before you decide; to (f) silent stares on the tortured faces of our two hostesses (which seemed to be quietly screaming: “Please just leave. We can fit five couples in the space your brood will take up, and the couples will be higher paying, quieter and more dignified”). Suffice it to say that we did not eat there, but rather took their not so subtle hints and went elsewhere. If you’re a quiet dignified couple, enjoy. If you see a large family with kids there, compliment them on their tenacity.
