I stayed at this hotel about 10 years ago, a beautiful place, clean and very stylish decorated. A problem showed up after I ordered a normal menu of salmon fish. Apparently the chef was not able at all to do his job as it was a terrible experience. I complained about this and got a second table which was even worse. Finally I ordered a coffee with a cognac. Believe it or not but the hired (temporary?) server did not even understand French or English. I had to grab the bottle myself ... It was a total disaster and back in Sweden, where I live, I compared this hotel with the famous John Cleese "Fawlty Tower" sketches.
Anyway, I returned to this place 3 years later, where everything was normal . probably the original chef was back in town and I had nothing to complain of.
Now, this year in september 2011 I returned with my wife hoping that all would be fine. To my great horror the chef must have been totally out of his mind when serving my wife a so-called exotic salad. The air was filled with a disgusting stink of vinegar and even outdated olive oil. My wife almost spewed and even I could not keep myself in place. We complained and my wife got a second try which was the same or even worse.
Old olive oil, to much vinegar and a cold piece of chicken. Absolutely disgusting!
Ordering a Cappuccino resulted in a black coffee, not anything like a fresh cappuccino or espresso..
I've seen good reviews on the chefs capabilities at this hotel on other I-net site. But this story is not made up. The chef is a disaster at this place and should not have a license to work in any kitchen.
