Rarely have I been so disappointed in the offerings compared to my expectations.
That is when you go to some places you don't expect much and you don't get much.
In this case, the ambience is excellent, the waiter we had was efficient and friendly, but at the prices charged you would expect something better.
Maybe we just chose the wrong dishes, and the first courses (soup) were very tatsy, if a little on the small side.
As for the main, the lobscouse was only what one could have go elsewhere for 5 euros less, and I was seriously unimpressed by the minute bit of bismark herring on my plate which obviously came out of a bottle. The meat bit of the dish was underseasoned too, and probably from a catering tin. Having said that, it was perfectly edible.
The main failure was the sole veggie main option. When will restaurants get the point that they should not treat vegetarians as though they have no sense of taste. This was advertised as a Vegetable Strudel. Now I do not know what you think a strudel is or should be, but I have always understood it to be layered pastry. What actually came to the plate was similar to two of those large Vegetable Spring Rolls that I get from my local Chinese Restaurants. Obviously not made on site, but bought elsewhere in a catering pack and then deep fried - and the filling was more potato than veg (yes I know a potato is a veg), and tasteless.
So as I said, perhaps we chose the wrong things, but if you are a veggie give this a miss until it ups its game.
