“Outstanding service, pretty location but meal quality lets it down”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We dined at this restaurant 5 years ago and had a fabulous meal surrounded by locals.

I was really looking forward to dining here again and it was on our must do list of restaurants. Unfortunately times change as was evident here.

There was no one else dining here when we arrived which concerned me a bit. I dismissed my unease as it was rather late.

The meal regrettably was average at best. I wanted to enjoy it, as I had such fond memories of it, the wait staff were so lovely and the setting in a restaurant in a covered outdoor setting by a little canal was so charming but the food really was not great. I suspect that they have changed chefs such was the difference.

The meal was reasonably priced.

There were a number of positives but the quality of the meal really let it down.
