“Worst service imaginable”
Reviewed 15 January 2011

The restaurant looks small and cosy at first. But don't get use to this...

As starters, we took the artichokes and ravioli in a creamy sauce and a home pizza. The pizza crust was very average, and the toppings were boring. The pasta and the artichoke were OK, although not exceptional.

I then ordered the veal escalopes (saltimbocca) and it was clearly overcooked, very difficult to chew, unedible.

I mentionned to the waiter that the meat was overcooked, thus not pleasant, he almost shouted at me that it was perfectly cooked, that if I knew better, I would appreciate it. I could not believe how rude and aggressive this waiter was. As one should know in a restaurant, the veal should be cooked 3 min on one side and 2 min on the other, to keep the veal well cooked, but still juicy and pleasant.

The restaurant's management should definitely try to teach basic politeness toward client's, and then some meat cooking lesson would be strongly advisable.

The bill for this unedible restaurant, with very average wine, exceeded 350 euros for two person. Definitely a no go. The Relais Plaza is 100m away, and the service and food are impeccable.
