“Ruined our stay in Venice! Avoid!”
Reviewed 7 April 2013 via mobile

Although the staff were friendly, my praise stops there I am afraid. First night of a long weekend break, so spent my £1.99 O2 allowance on surfing Trip Advisor for somewhere nice to eat. Oh dear, the food was slow arriving and average tasting, tables lay unmade around us and it seemed like those in the quieter room were seen as "out of sight - out of mind" as we rarely saw any staff, but lots appeared to be happening in the main restaurant! I won't go into great detail but I can only say that within 4 hours of eating here, I was napping on the bathroom floor between bouts of sickness which continued for the next 12 hours. 2 days later I still can't manage more than a basic plate of chips :(. Hope this helps!

“Ruined our Valentines night”
Reviewed 17 February 2013 via mobile

We decided to eat here after seeing reviews on trip advisor, so booked up for 8pm on valentines day, from the moment we arrived the alarm bells started ringing, they could not find our booking so stuck us round the corner,
We then waited 30 minutes before we were acknowledged & offered a drink, the restaurant filled up quickly & was full by the time we got a drink, we ordered a bottle of prosecco which the waitress then poured out into a wine glass?, there must be 25 tables in this place but they had 1 waitress & I assume the owner the only people serving & taking orders.
The couple sitting next to us hadn't even been offered a drink after an hour, we finally got our first course after 75 minutes then sat there for another 40 mins before they took our plates away, there was people complaining all around us & one couple even walked out just leaving some euros on the table & even the money just sat there for about 30 mins,
We got our second course which came out cold but because we never saw a waitress for another 30mins we just wanted to get out of the place, we spent €82 on possibly our worst meal & wouldn't recommend this place.
Did they not know it was valentines day?

We had a wonderful meal at Ribot. The amuse bouche was a really nice surprise. Everyone loved their dishes and the service was great. We found the prices to be reasonable. Had we stayed longer, we would have dined with them again.
