We've been coming for years. Love the place, the location, and everything. This time the staff were wonderful and the place just as great as ever.
BUT the chef changed. That did not mean more than happy curiosity until we saw the menu.
Limited choices. Very. Also too much fried (the only chicken was fried). Fish bland - chef does not know herbs and red pepper? Paprika? A slab of white fish on a white plate with a pale sauce and pale veg ( very few of the above) not appetizing.
Green salad so small for 12 dollars virtually a dollar a leaf.
Extra charges for veg or potatoes etc.
Just a rip off now. So sad. We'd have paid up happily for good food and a bit of a choice!
