We called the lazy cow to make a dinner reservation for 1930 as my partner and I hate eating late, they said we could have 1945. On arrival we were not seated at our table until 2030! A 45 minute wait was not acceptable if you have booked.
We were also very cold as the radiators were not on and we were seated by the window which had an evident breeze!
I had the tempura prawns and my partner had pork tacos- The prawns were lovely however for £8 I did not expect to only have 3 of them. My partners tacos were lovely.
For mains I ordered the Aberdeen Fillet steak and my partner ordered the Argentinean fillet steak as we wanted to see the difference. We had already waited around 12 minutes when the waiter came over and said the chef had cooked ribeye instead. He asked my partner if he would like that and he declined.
We then had to wait a further 15 mins for our meal, we were given a complimentary drink each for the mix up. My partners steak was much smaller than mine although presented on the menu as the same weight. Both steaks were nice but nothing to write home about.
To top it off I went to the loo before leaving and was disgusted! There were empty tampon boxes on the floor and in the loo and there was toilet roll everywhere. I feel if you cant even keep check of the bathroom what on earth is going on in the kitchen!
We ended up leaving the Lazy cow very late and very deflated.
It was a very expensive meal costing over £90 and we did not even buy a bottle of wine! They seriously need to re-think their costing if the experience does not match the price.
What a shame!
