I booked Estrellas for my mum's 75th surprise birthday party. There were 45 people and I asked for a cold buffet which was excellent quality and suited tastes old and young. People had a choice of drinks, alcoholic, non-alcoholic, teas and coffees and everyone said it was a lovely place. We had a choice of music on he juke box and the decor and atmosphere was just right .

It is a great location and with its doors open looks inviting. But the waitress really couldn't care less, we sat had two spirits with a mixer; it was a small glass, no ice or lemon?! Looked at the menu for ages, no staff were in the room, and we were the only guests, still waited, no staff in sight. Decided that this is not the place for us, so paid and went else where. there are better restaurants in Lee to spent your money!

Went in November on a Friday at 7 pm with my wife and friends, service was disastrous!!

Ordered 3 x G & T's which took ages to come and when they arrived they were in tall glasses - no ice no lemon and so topped up with tonic that the gin could hardly be tasted!!

Ordered starters - duly written down by very young waitress - three of us ordered lobster thermidor for main course (it is a steak and lobster restaurant) again all noted by waitress

After a considerable delay we were told that there was only one lobster left!!

Ordered one lobster thermidor and two different main courses and waited - and waited!!

After much more delay eventually the main courses arrived however still no sign of the starters!!!!

When we complained were told that there must have been some sort of mix up in orderin

The one lobster thermidor arrived whole (minus back) - unopened tail shell, "uncracked" claws and "swimming in a very "runny" cheese sauce!!!!!! no finger bowl or extra napkins!!!!!

Staff attitude was appalling - we live in Lee but will never return!!!!


TYPICAL LOBSTER THERMIDOR RECIPE AS IT SHOULD BE SERVED

1.Cut the lobster in half and remove the meat from the claws and tail. Leave to one side. Remove any meat from the head and set aside. Cut the meat up into pieces and place back into the shell.

2.For the sauce, put the butter in a pan, add the shallots and cook until softened. Add the stock, wine and double cream and bring to the boil. Reduce by half. Add the mustard, herbs, lemon juice and seasoning.

3.Preheat the grill and spoon the sauce over the lobster meat. Sprinkle with the grated Parmesan cheese. Place the lobster halves under a preheated grill for 3-4 minutes until golden brown.
