This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and was only a few minutes walk away. Being visitors we did not know it was part of a chain but it soon became obvious.
The place was pretty quiet so we were shown to a table right away. Formulaic menus handed out, drinks ordered. Our server came a while later and we asked for recommendations. Standard, unhelpful answer - everything is good. While he was speaking to us, another server came up and drew him away part way through a sentence (without apology) and then within earshot proceeded to tell him off for operating in her section.
Next thing we know, we have a new server (still no apology or explanation) and she launched into the standard spiel all over again, like nothing had happened. By this time, we knew this wouldn't get much better, so we quickly ordered fish and chips each - mine spicy, his not - and some wine.
The final disappointment - the fish was overcooked. Surely a seafood restaurant should know how to cook fish. Lucky we didn't get the lobster.
