Recently had dinner here again - we tend to go here a couple of times a year for a "treat". The food was pretty good, though not faultless, but what really shocked us was the very poor service.
This restaurant is one of the most expensive in N.Ireland, at around £60 a head for evening a la carte. With this you should expect excellent servce and on all previous occasions we had this, for example when you went to the bathroom you returned and your napkin was folded on the table; also the servce was discreet but very attentive as it should be. This time service was very much "in your face" and not attentive. I had to move out of the way on a number of occasions to allow the (fairly haughty) waitress to fill my wine or water glass and she whipped away our starter dishes with a "I'll take those". Not a question of whether or not we had enjoyed them...!!
We also had to wait 10 mins when we were seated and then had to ask for someone to talk us through the menu. Too many different waiting staff coming to the table etc etc.
Overall, I would not eat here again until service improves - quality food is only one part of a dining experience, and at this price service must be better than a poor average.
