One Blenheim Terrace had been recommended to me several times by various friends, so thought i would check it out. Unfortunately i was disappointed. The restaurant itself is nice.. although it could use a bit of an update (chipped paint, old fixtures). The food was well priced and the menu had a good selection. The starters (prawns and whitebait) and main ( ravioli and lamb) were very good. However, when we asked for the dessert menu - we were told that the only dessert available that night were the crepes. my boyfriend had the nutella and strawberry crepe, i asked for the chocolate and banana crepe. when it came, my crepe was very dry with barely any filling and unmelted, cold chocolate. We politely pointed this out to the waiter who immediately took offence, offered no apology and no resolution to the situation. We said it wasn't a problem. a second waiter came over and apologised, saying that he would take the dessert off the bill. Our primary waiter stormed off and very loudly complained that he didn't understand what was wrong with it. He ranted repeatedly for a good 5 mins. This made us very uncomfortable - to the point where we just wanted to leave. I found this highly unprofessional and rude, when we had endeavoured to be polite. I definitely wouldn't return to this restaurant - a shame it didn't live up to its good name.
