Masseria dei Monaci-Ristorante il Gambero
Ranked #24 of 40 Hotels in Otranto
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 11, 2012

We booked for one night and upon arrival were delighted to learn we could have dinner at the Tenuta after along day of sight-seeing in Otanto.When we returned to the tenuta,I took a nap,intending to arrive at the dining room at the usual time for dinner in Puglia,8:30.My husband roused me early,stating the owner/chef had requested we dine at an earlier time,since there were only two other people dining that evening.Sleepily,I entered the dining room and was served a bowl of spaghetti tossed in a tasteless tomato sauce and topped with 5 tiny,obviously frozen shrimp....ironic for a place called Tenuta il Gambero [shrimp].We ordered a bottle of Puglia white,which tasted much the same as the carafe wine we had been drinking for the last 2 weeks.It was a sad and disappointing meal.The next morning,when we received the bill,we were aghast to learn we had been charged as much as we had paid for excellent,complete dinners in restaurants.We questioned the owners,but they were indifferent to our concers.We felt taken and so angry.This was the only negative experience in our two weeks of travel in Puglia.

''Dear guest, I'm sorry about your bad memories of your holiday in our Hotel
but the events are not exactly as you describe them.
The dinner had been booked for 07.30 pm;
Around 09.00 pm I asked your husband and he came in the room to wake you.
Viewing the menu with the prices, you ordered a bottle of water, a bottle of local wine
and two bowls of spaghetti with shrimps that, contrary to what you wrote, the shrimps were
fresh and plentiful.
We would have liked to receive these complaints during the dinner so we can meet your needs.
Sorry for the disagreement, best regards

Germana''
