We are local residents and this used to be our go to place for a night out. We hadn't been here for several years and being a nice night we decided to give it a try again as our last experience was not good at all.
Tonight service was lacking even though when we arrived it was not busy. There were plenty of staff, but they seemed focused on getting a large table together and not paying attention to other patrons already in the pub. We were given menus and were not asked if we wanted a beverage for some time after giving us the menus.
We ordered our dinners and our drinks were empty by the time our dinners came and we were not asked if we wanted refills - we had to ask.
Our meals arrived and our son ordered one of the specials and it was salmon which was overcooked and served with a "salad" which consisted of cucumber and lettuce - nothing else. The risotto served along side was totally flavourless and sitting in a glob.
My husband had a fish taco and it was in a wrap and was oozing dressing - very average.
I had the salmon corn chowder - the house regular soup - there was no corn/vegetables in the soup and it was very light on salmon - mostly a cream base - the foccacia bread served along side was drenched in some kind of butter on the bottom - was good if you avoided this part - in fact when I got home I was sick.
Our son's meal was taken off the bill by the head server - a very nice gesture considering the meal - we are not a family who complains and are very easy to please - we were not the only ones who were frustrated. It was just a poor decision to eat here tonight.
We found that the prices are too high for a pub and more in the line of a fine dining restaurant.
Will we go back and suggest this place to visitors to our area - definitely not.
Too bad , because the location is amazing right on the ocean.
