We went to Windjammer because it was recommended to us and we were very disappointed. The welcome on arrival was unenthusiastic and the staff had not bothered to call back and confirm my booking after my voice message was received. Luckily they had reserved a table for us. The service was prompt. I ordered the veal which was exceptional. The flavours were lovely and it was cooked to perfection. My husband ordered the 'crisp' pork belly (as per the menu) and it had a nice flavour but the pork was dry and there was not an ounce of crispiness. It was completely soggy on top. We didn't complain about the pork because I had been very impressed with my meal... although when we received the bill we wished we had complained. I had ordered a sparkling mineral water to drink and was horrified to be changed ten dollars for it (300ml bottle). My husband ordered a gin and tonic which on the menu was listed as eight dollars but we had also been charged ten dollars for this. It seems the staff took it upon themselves to serve up the top shelf gin seeing as though we had not requested the cheapest option. It wasn't the extra cost that bothered us ... it was the sneaky money-making scheme that we felt we'd been sucked into. I don't mind paying for good food and service but being ripped off leaves me feeling bitter. I would not go back to Windjammer.
