We came in for an evening meal without a reservation around 7.15 and were told there would not be a table available until 8.00. That was fair enough, and we decided to wait. However, when we actually sat down and ordered our main course we were then told there would be a 25 minute wait for food to be prepared as the kitchen was busy. Had we known, we would have gone elsewhere. I asked if, in that case, we could have something like some olives in the meantime, and was told that the wait would be the same. I did query how preparing a plate of olives could occupy 25 minutes but did not receive a coherent reply. The waitress then suggested, apparently without irony, that I could buy some crisps at the bar!
We might have left at that point except that we had already started an indifferent and overpriced bottle of Pinot Noir. The food finally arrived at 8.45, a full hour and a half after we came in. The meals in themselves, pork loin and duck were good, but there seemed to be no system to the way clients were served, and the waiting staff were indifferent, unobservant and unsmiling. The whole experience let down by poor service.
