We had heard such good things about Selene and had high expectations. The restaurant is cute and the staff was friendly and professional, but on June 1, something must have been horribly off in the kitchen.
What started out as a "leisurely" pace for dinner, stretched longer and longer without explanation. We waited more than 45 minutes after our entrees were cleared before the mains arrived - and then only four of the five dishes arrived.
We poked at our pretty but lukewarm dishes while waiting for the fifth dish. When it arrived, the interior of the fish was still cold. We sent it back, only to have it reappear five minutes later - same fish, but just reheated. Wish mains costing EUR 40+, we would expect dishes to arrive properly cooked and mistakes to be remade, not just reheated.
The host was apologetic but the excuse - "all our bookings were for the same time tonight" - was not acceptable. They did discount our wine by way of apology and I really think it was not the staff's fault but a matter in the kitchen.
Overall, nothing about the food impressed me enough to spend this much money and have such a poor experience. Better just get a gyro in the neighborhood taverna.
