I chose this restaurant on the basis of good TA reviews, so was surprised at how empty it was on a Friday night. I'll start with the good: the restaurant is comfortable (comfy banquette seating) and I received a friendly reception. The menu, although concise (approx 4 choices for each course) was interesting and appetising and I really enjoyed the wine I chose (Chardonnay). I enjoyed my starter (crayfish tiramisu) and dessert (macaroons) very much. Sadly the main course was the disappointment: I ordered the Guinnea fowl and it was served undercooked - the centre was still raw. The accompanying vegetables (spinach and beansprouts) were also gritty. I mentioned it to the waitress when she cleared by plate and she said she would let the chef know, but there was no offer at the time to re-cook it and when the bill arrived there had been no consideration for the fact that I'd been unable to eat most of my main course, so I (very politely) asked it to be taken into account. The manageress came over to speak to me and asked why I hadn't sent it back to the kitchen and informed me that's what I should have done; however did agree to make a goodwill discount of €5. I left feeling rather awkward from the whole affair, disappointed with my meal and also quite surprised that there wasn't more concern at a rather basic error being made with a poultry dish. I will mention, though, that thankfully I was not ill as a result.
I can understand why other people have rated this restaurant highly - suspect my experience was the exception rather than the rule - and wish I was also able to rate it more highly.
