“Worst meal we have ever had!!!!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2009

We went to this restaurant based on the good reviews we had read. Unfortunately, it was the worst meal we have ever had!!! We ordered a house specialty for 2 - a seafood rice stew. It was decribed as having prawns and various seafood. The stew was cold when served, The seafood amounted to 2 prawns and 5 small clams. Maybe the 20+ empty clam shells and other various pieces of seafood shells qualify as seafood . Our waiter did speak to the chef. The chef's rsponse was that she has been serving this dish all day and it was fine. Then the bill arrived and we dicovered that we were charged for the bread the waiter placed on our table before the meal, as well as for the cheese and butter accompanying the bread. The butter was .80 Euro for one serving. In addition, we were constantly bothered by people selling things or asking for money. Beware!! Stay away!!!
