My hopes were high for this restaurant because it is in a nice location and I was really hungry. The server presented us with a bread basket with a nice selection of cheeses, meats, olives, and butter. The server mentioned nothing when the plate was placed before us and I was ready to reach for a roll when my wife caught view of the prices: Bread, £2. Butter, £1 per mini square. Each piece of cheese was £6. A tiny ramekin of olives, £4.50. A few slices of ham, £4.50.
The locals seem aware of this trick and didn't touch the offering. We followed suit.
The rest of the menu was fairly priced. I had sardines for £10 and my wife ate grilled vegetables for £12. Both were average, at best. When presented with the bill, we were charged for the bread and insisted it was taken off as it was never touched.
Perhaps it is a cultural difference about the bread and cheese offering but we felt cheated and spent the rest of the meal suspicious we were getting a heavy does of tourist trickery.
