So their Signboard sure is a eye opener. Sadly so is the food and service (not in a good way).
My family and I arrived and waited about 10 minutes to be seated, despite the restaurant being mostly empty. Waiters were nowhere in sight.
When we were finally seated we ordered the tenderloin, as well as the fish with special sauce. (I think it was sea bass, I don't remember), along with 3 soups and two cokes.
The drinks arrived rather quickly, which was fine, but the soups took a whole hour to arrive. And when it did, it was cold. Looking around, I realized everyone's soup arrived at the same time, including a number of tables which were there before us. We asked the same waiter for some pepper, thrice, but sadly, no pepper arrived, even after we finished our main courses.
Next, our steaks arrived, another hour after, terribly overcooked. We ordered them to be done medium rare, but they were close to well done. The sizzling ceramic plate it arrived on did not help at all. On top of this, our sides, which were supposed to arrive with our steaks took another 15 minutes to come and were cold. For a baked potato to be cold, takes a considerable amount of time in the room. So that speaks a lot. The condiments served for the baked potato tasted canned and stale.
The fish arrived shortly after the steaks, but was overcooked as well, with no special sauce, which took another half hour to arrive. A small ramekin of what tasted like dill, thrown into cold milk and served. It was horrible.
We couldn't be bothered to send back the food, in fear of waiting another hour for our food. If we had know we'd wait this long for such a standard of food, we would have gone to astons. Also, the price charged, which was around that of a fine dining steakhouse, if not slightly pricier was as good as a complete rip off
Maybe they have improved since that day, or it was merely a bad day for them, but I wouldn't risk going there again.
I would not recommend this place to anyone.
