We went to see 'Kiss me Kate' at the Festival theatre and thought it a good idea (being close etc) to eat at the Brasserie. Not recommended ; there are far better restaurants and Gastro pub nearby. It was not a good experience though others may find it okay. On Monday night we arrived for a table at 6:00pm (show starts 7:30pm) and were immediately seated- so far so good .
We sat there until 6:20pm before our food order was taken ( only main courses ordered) drinks order was taken approx 10 mins later (bottle of wine and glasses of tapwater). The food arrived within 5 mins but no drinks order. Obviously preparation was not a high point as it was reasonably hot but possiblly microwaved. To be honest before theatre meals are like this so no exception there however it took a further 10 mins before (after asking the waitress about it) that our drinks appeared. The excuse - there seems to be a problem with the bar. Would we eat there again certainly not. There is no excuse for this. They know they have a prime position; they know that people come to eat and quaff drinks before the theatre and that it is time limited. The brasserie needs to get its act together. I would not go there again.
