“Underwhelmed”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2013

We went for dinner following a good review from a friend.

The service was appalling. Most of our drinks arrived at the same time, but one friend was left without one with no explanation. We asked the waitress if it was coming and she said it would soon. After a bit longer we asked again, and she told us the barman was in the store room and it would come soon. A while later we spotted another waitress walking in from the main road with a couple of bottles and a receipt in her hand from the local shop - then a minute or so later the drink came. It was comical! The friend would have happily ordered another drink if they had just said they were out of stock, rather than having to wait for them to pop to the shops.

We had the same problem with the food. Most meals arrived at the same time, but the same friend was left waiting 10 minutes after us for her meal to come, after we had asked the waitress a couple of times if it was coming. It seems like basic common sense that when serving a party, all the meals come out together?

The food itself was nice, but nothing special. I had one of the pizzas - nothing stood out about it, considering the restaurant markets itself as a pizzeria.

We were disappointed that it didn't live up to the good things we had heard, but we will not be going again.
