Our meals at the Hilton Cardiff.
Due to being a member of the Hilton hotel I had some vouchers that I needed to be used up so, we chose to eat out on 2 consecutive Sundays.
The first Sunday the 15th August we booked for 1.00pm
Shown to our table gave my voucher to the duty manager.
We went for what normally is a wonderful selection of starters.
Well not what we expected at all a very limited selection. On glancing at the desserts they fared no better.
No little signs to let you know what you are eating, which if you had dietary requirements would be a problem.
There is a sign saying if you have special requirements to see a member of staff, but little labels like they used to would be much better.
Then the main meal.
Where do I start!! Frozen anaemic roast potatoes, meat sliced so thin you could practically see through it, all the veg was frozen except for the boiled potatoes in their skins. In one serving dish alone they had courgettes, string beans and peas!! I took a Yorkshire pudding bit in to it and it was cooked in dirty oil, disgusting. I saw nearly everyone’s come back.
A terrible meal if I was paying for it I would not have been amused.
To top it all the duty manager presented me with a bill!
Which was rectified.
Meal 2 taken on the 22nd, as we thought it cant is that bad 2 weeks running, as we have had some lovely meals there.
Starters selection slightly better deserts not, no cheese board!!
Main meal meat sliced better, much nicer veg; they actually put it in separate serving bowls, Yorkshires edible.
What I couldn’t understand and I have never seen it in any other restaurant I have eaten in, the young lady serving you the meat was actually then peeling buckets of carrots on the back of the serving area. Surely that is a kitchen porter’s job to do in the KITCHEN.
Would we eat there again or are we renewing our membership which we have had for 8 years NO.
Much nicer place to eat in the city.
