Avoid this restaurant!
We dined at this restaurant two years ago (8.04) and could not wait to go back. We checked in and were told they have a three course chef's choice dinner. We were also told they could certainly accommodate vegetarians. Perhaps not needing reservations on a Saturday night at the peak of summer and tourist season should have been an indicator. After we were seated we were told the chef would love to make a mixed vegetable risotto. We thought we would go ahead with it. Again, perhaps offered one choice should have been and indicator but we were already seated. The service was truly horrific. Our water glasses sat empty despite asking for more. Our salad was served (an ala carte item) and then the bread. We were never provided with bread plats. When our entree arrived we could not believe it was being served as such. We asked for more bread. The waiter came back to our still empty water glasses ten minutes later and told us he had forgotten the bread, did we still want it. He then came back five minutes later to our still empty water glasses and asked if we wanted anything else. At this point we gave up on the water and bread and asked for our bill. This meal was the most expensive and worst that we had while on holiday in Victoria. The service was a joke and the food quality slightly above that. I only wish I knew where the chef from two years ago was.
