We wanted to go out somewhere nice for a birthday dinner. A friend said she had heard about a fantastic restaurant near Bermondsey Street. She thought it was Tentazioni in Mill Street, it wasn’t. The website enticed us with really interesting set meals. When we arrived the set meals were off and the a la carte menu was just about one of the most boring I have seen for many a year in London. The pasta was OK, it should have been it is an Italian eatery after all. One was left ordering steak and chips, not very good and very unexciting. The Dover sole a friend had looked as dry as dust. To cap it all the soufflé for sweet was like rubber. This was sent back. The price would be taken off the bill we were told. We had to point out that it is usual to offer a liqueur as recompense. This was granted grudgingly. To the waiter’s credit he bought an i-pad to the table where he proved to himself as much as anyone else that, yes, indeed the website was erroneous and said that he would get the set meals removed. I would give this place a wide berth. From other reviews it looks as if something has changed and not for the better.
