I visited the hotel yesterday evening for a catch up with 2 close friends, one of whom is a vegetarian. We decided to skip starters and just order mains. Myself and one friend ordered the lasagne, and my veggie friend ordered the vegetarian pasta (as this was the only veg choice on
the menu). No complaints whatsoever with the food, perhaps with the exception that parts of the lasagne were a little dry. Our plates were cleared in a timely manner, and upon request we were given the dessert menu. Up until this point we found service to be efficient, if not the friendliest.
This is where our lovely meal took a bit of a turn. Our table and the one other table on the balcony area sat with dessert menus for around 20 minutes without any sign of a waiter coming to take our order. At this point, one of the ladies with the other party went to the bar to ask to place a dessert order. When we eventually had our order taken, we were informed that our waiter had gone on his break! Considering the restaurant floor was well
staffed with waiters we found this excuse to be a little lacking, and if I had not been out for a meal with 2 friends who I rarely see we would have declined to order anything else! However, the extremely high quality of the desserts we ordered quietened any rumblings. The apple crumble and white chocolate and raspberry torte were both delicious, served with honeycomb ice cream in a wafer basket.
The second waiter we had was also in himself a source of high quality entertainment! The aeroplane noise he made as he set down the desserts was one of the high points in our meal. Overall the food was lovely, and a great evening was had. Our bill came to £45 for 3 mains, 3 desserts, 4 soft drinks and a coffee, which we thought was very reasonable.
