I visited Seasons Restaurant ( not to be confused with Seasons Bar across the road) with 4 friends. The staff were very friendly, helpful and attentive but apart from one other table, we were the only people in the restaurant on a Thursday night three weeks before Christmas and now I know why.
This is not a fine dining restaurant and neither is it priced as such but someone has clearly been watching too much Master Chef! Just because food is artfully piled in the middle of the plate or served on a piece of slate it does not mean that no attention has to be given to the actual produce or the flavour. The Calamari to start looked the part served on a platter in a wire basket, but consisted of large pieces, overcooked and chewy. My main course which was supposed to be Sea Bass on crushed potatoes with langoustine was a round of mash with the smallest piece of Sea Bass that I have ever seen, so small it looked far too young to have left its mother! With one langoustine on top. Apart from the size of the Bass, it was all pretty much tasteless.
Desert was worse, 'A taste of Chocolate Orange' served on the by now ubiquitous slate, a few different pieces of sickly sweet chocolate mouses? With one slice of nectarine (the orange component) and a bottle containing what appeared to be runny chocolate mouse ( it couldn't be milk shake because it was too thick to suck up the straws provided) which was far too sweet and sickly to bother with anyway.
My friends all had equally average or worse food, a minute pice of salmon, prawn cocktail with hardly any prawns etc. the price was £30 for 3 courses which I know is hardly a fortune but they do make up for that by the price charged for alcohol. As you can guess, we won't be going again, but I almost feel guilty for writing this because the staff are so nice!
