Mardel is a newish restaurant located right on the sea. The window tables afford pleasant views of the sea. The decor is a mish-mash, as if the restaurant cannot decide for 19th-century elegance or 20th-century kitsch, and from the number of televisions turned to sports you might think it a sports bar. No one was at the door to greet us. I ordered a lemonade which I had to send back three times, first because it lacked both lemon and sugar, second becuse it was made with sparkling rather than still water, and third because it was tepid and had only two small pieces of ice floating at the top. I ordered a steak and my friend ordered ravioli. My steak was accompanied by a salad that a greasy spoon would be ashamed to serve--large chunks of lettuce, shredded onions and one lonely wedge of tomato with an uninteresting oil and vinegar dressing. My order arrived ten minutes before my friend's--inexcusable in a restaurant with pretensions to elegance. My steak was excellent--perfectly cooked, tender, and flavorful. My friend's ravioli when it finally arrived was doughy and relatively flavorless. After the meal, we finally had to go find the waiter to ask him to bring the bill. He was watching a football game. This restaurant is too high-priced to accept thjis kind of sloppiness.
