I was a bit wary of this restaurant because of previous reviews I had read, we decided to eat here rather than over at April Point (where in the past we've had fantastic meals) because we were staying in the Lodge. The location is brilliant and we were seated where we had a great view. Don't remember our starters (not sure if that is good or bad) but the main course which we had both chosen "halibut with risotto" was extremely disappointing. The halibut was over cooked and the risotto stodgy! We were asked whether we were enjoying our meal and told the waiter no and why. The waiter seem unable to know what to do......
When we checked out of Painters Lodge the next day the receptionist asked if we had enjoyed our stay and I told him of the disappointment we both had with the main course. To be fair he did give us a refund on one of the main courses but not on both - which was a pity.
We would not eat here again if we happened to stay at Painters Lodge again.
