My partner booked a table weeks and weeks ago for Valentines Dinner. It was a surprise and we really dont tend to go out much due to work and family commitments. We arrived and was offered a table at the end of another groups (group of four) table, was a little confused as my partner was advised when we booked that we were the first booking for that special date and we would get a 'good' table in the restaurant. We asked the waiter to confirm if this was our correct table, she advised that the good tables were only (no matter how early we booked) reserved for regulars only. She actually said that out loud and we all heard (including our other new dinner dates). We sat in surprise and said hello to our fellow diners at our table....who were also shocked. Ordered two entrees, calamari -a small amount of rubbery fried stuff arrived. The bread, our other entree was chewy, almost stale like.
Mains, we ordered the risotto; I guess it was ok if you like your risotto watery and with excessive amounts of parsley. And resembled jasmine rice more so. My partner ordered the slow roasted pork pasta. Meat was cooked nice but the dish had no flavour.
Service was probably the worst part, we drive 120 mins (after reading reviews we thought it was worth it plus it was Valentines day) and was treated like homeless people. We were the only ones in the place with no olive dish served on arrival. Our water glasses sat empty until I asked for some water and poured it myself....all the regulars had theirs poured. We were not asked for any further drinks. And to top it off we were the only people in this dark joint with their candle not lit....we couldn't even read the menu!!!
Overall I wouldn't bother unless you live next door, are not fussed about flavour and are happy to flash your money around for no good reason.
The pub across the road would have been more romantic than this place....thanks for ruining our Valentines night.
Pricey and rude.
