It started out amusing enough, the young owner had an air of Basil Fawlty about him so we took the eccentric manner in our stride and settled in for a pleasant evening. They only served one starter when we had ordered two but they quickly put that right. We had trouble finding a main dish that wasn't smothered with cream or cheese, so settled for the seafood spaghetti as my friend has a condition that limits her diet. It sounded lovely, with mussels, scallops and jumbo tiger prawns.
The first time they bought the spaghetti dish it was covered in a creamy cheese sauce, apparently roquefort, but not mentioned on the menu! However that was whisked away at our request and very quickly (Too quickly?) the second effort was placed before us. Unfortunately not a scallop or a jumbo prawn insight, the reason I had ordered the dish.
My husband had gone for a safe carbonara but alas it was almost solid with cheese and had set like a block by the time he gave in and admitted defeat. Our fourth guest ordered lasagne and he was very happy with that.
I am putting this review on, not to just moan as I think all the staff are very nice and helpful, there was no quibble about taking two meals off the menu, but we would all rather have had a nice meal and paid in full. If this restaurant wants to do well it really needs to think about the quality of the food it serves and at least keep to the description in the menu. Maybe further training for the chef? As I said in the title, started promisingly enough but was a real let down because of the food.
