Went there for the first time and likely the last time too. Booked the place for a bridal shower dinner because the menu looks nice and the prices on the menu are reasonable and affordable (average for pasta $20-$25). But no, we didn’t get to choose anything from the menu -
The service was good but only from one lady who looked like the manager. Service from the rest of the staff are poor, at least not for the price we paid. No menu given until we asked for it, no smile, took away the plate before we finished it.
The lovely lady learnt that we were having a bridal shower and suggested all these “must have” dishes that are not on the menu (if they are “must have” why are they not on the menu??) she decided for us what and how much we should order to share between us and advised that those were starters only. She quickly took away all the menus which we didn’t get to read.
The food was fantastic and authentic. she came back after starters and thoughtfully asked for our main without bringing the menu, again we took what she suggested to share. The bride to be asked her for free dessert (as part of her hens night task), the lady was all sweet about it and brought a lava cake with congratulating wordings on it, she was so sweet. Later on the waitress brought 3 more desserts to our table and we were flattered.
The bill came with a shocking price of $117 per person (including a bottle of champagne), the off menu dishes she decided for us are average $50 per dish, bear in mind most of them were only starters, and there were only few dishes we shared only, we didn't even have a main to our own. To our horror she charged the desserts which we did not order. I managed get her void one dessert but it already ruined the night especially when the bride to be was on the table. It’s not about the price as the food is good, but it’s the way we were directed to order these off menu dishes that makes it a negative.
The ambience is cosy but not fancy, it's not a fine dining environment. I could have had more food at the same price at a fine dining restaurant.
It was a beautiful night for us until the bill was called when we couldn’t help but feel cheated. The service was good but insincere. The price on the menu seems misleading as the off menu dishes are far too much more expensive than what’s on the menu. Who on earth would ask the price of each item she suggesting while you are on a group table and there’s a bride to be getting shout? I feel the sweet service and suggestions were strategic and seem insincere to me. It’s understandable given that she is in business to make money but I don’t agree with the way she serves, after all, you want to earn customer’s trust too beside the profit. The food was beautiful, it’s such a shame that the experience eventually prevent me from recommending this restaurant. I would suggest them to crystallised the price of off menu dishes by putting them on a board or something, if they are really “must have” signature dishes.
