Its been a while since we ate at Aneu, have been fans since way back when it was simply Merediths. We made a late reservation ( 8:30 ) for Saturday night as they were busy, a large party was having an event. We arrived on time, but were told it was crazy, and so sat chatting at the bar until a table could be created for our party of 6. A lovely table, things looked up! Our waitress and hostess were charming, apologies flowed. Sadly, our now much anticipated meals were a complete let down. Not well prepared, rare steak was decidedly crisp, pork dry, it was probably a nightmare evening in the kitchen with the place overflowing with guests. We were kindly comped the salads and dessert & coffee, but again, not rave-able. So, with really lovely service and knowing that our experience was sub-par to put it mildly, we will stick with "hopefully we picked a bad night" and enquire as to any events being held simultaneously if & when we return.
