We have been to the Prince Alfred many times with our family, my husband's 60th birthday party was held here. We decided to have dinner here last night, and were sorely disappointed. Our waitress was charming, but the service was extremely slow, and the dining room was not at all busy. We ordered two simple dishes, sausages and mash and sea bass. The sausages and mash sat out for the best part of ten minutes on the serving hatch - the chef eventually putting his little finger on one of the sausages to see if it was still warm enough to serve. When my sea bass was cooked the two dishes were served, and the vegetables with the sea bass were cold and inedible. The quinoa, if that's what it was, was so highly salted (and I like salt) it was also inedible. When I spoke to another waiter about the poor quality of the meal he just looked blankly at me. Nothing was taken off the bill. The chefs were chatting and there didn't appear to be any front of house manager. Such a shame, you used to be great - we need a good restaurant in Maida Vale. No tip was left.
