Stopped in for a bite to eat......big mistake,food was terrible. I ordered “KENTUCKY STYLE”
CHICKEN FILLET Sweet potato wedges & shaved fennel salad, BBQ sauce. First things first ....when it arrived to my table the plate was covered in balsamic vinegar and then the food placed on top. When i told the waiter it was balsamic vinegar and not barbeque sauce which is what it says on the menu......he asked me do i not like balsamic vinegar? Not sure he knew the menu properly.....Sent it back . My girlfriend ordered the GRILLED FILLET OF ATLANTIC SALMON Crushed potato of dillisk, sun-blushed tomato & sugar
snap, saffron & white wine veloute sauce. The fish was bland and boring .....not a lot happening on the plate, as soon as it was served she asked for a a side of vegetables. Apart from the salmon being tasteless ,the baby potatoes it came with were literally raw, hard as rocks....picked them out and sent them back. By now my chicken was back ,minus the balsamic vinegar and now served with bbq sauce as advertised. The chicken was tasteless , bland, no seasoning,breadcrumbs were a mess, it was served with 5 sweet potatoes , they were burnt , dry ,tasteless. The vegetables we ordered at the start arrived, broccoli was raw, carrots and parsnips...didnt taste great. My shaved fennel salad was a joke. By the time we were finished a portion of mashed potatoes arrived, bland tasteless , boring mashed potatoes, .....total price for the dining experience, €26.90. On top of that there are big tv screens with sports blaring on it , children running everywhere, the general noise in there is insane, sat in the restaurant are to get as far away from that noise as possible, bus load after bus load of tourists pile in and out of this are....after all this nothing offered off our bill at checkout, probably think we are just another tourist and wont be back,live down the road,wont be going back!
