Last night after watching a movie we decided on Primi Piatti Somerset West after great experiences at the V & A Waterfront and Cavendish. Well what a let down. Arriving at 8:00 pm there were 3 occupied tables and that should have been a warning alone!
The best of the evening was my second Peroni! and that after we had to beg for service.
The food however was the bummer. Arrived the bread basket with 3 pieces of stale rusk like white bread 60mm x 40mm x 40mm. What was that???? My wife ordered a Char grilled Chicken Wrap. The thin pieces of chicken looked liked they have been cured in vinegar and not a sign of being near a flame. My son had the hamburger. The patties 4 mm thick and looked like it came straight from the supermarket pre packed in cartons. Totally un appetising.
The cherry on top was my 500g T-Bone served rare. We heard them hammering the meat in the kitchen to try and soften it up. As far as T-Bone, it was 10mm thick and no sign of the centre bone in the meat separating what was to be the 2 juicy cuts. To get it rare they could not put it on the grill and this bleak piece of meat covered in butter arrived on my plate. The great steak knives could not cut through the sinewy meat no matter how hard I tried. I left half on the plate. The thinly cut chips was nice though. At R 145.00 what a rip!
After complaining the manager arrived and his attitude was: What can I say about the complaint? Left and did not try and repair any of the damage caused.
