I dined at Westbar and Cafe last night, 4 adults and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals.
Would definitely recommend dining here. Great service and friendly wait staff. Thanks

Finally we have found somewhere that my fussy family can all find something they like on the menu - a couple of minor "issues" were resolved quickly and in a really friendly manner - definitely will go back again

We arrived during lunch time on a Sunday, celebraiting a birthday. 4 adults, 3 of which ordered the squid 1 ordered a steak (over cooked). Most tables were full, we waited for at least 60 minutes before our food was served. This wouldn't have bothered us so much if we had been informed of such a long wait perhaps before we ordered or sat down. Instead we were sitting there guessing how long it was going to take, not great. Only when the food arrived and one in the party said 'thanks but don't you think the wait was a little long' instead of saying "I'm very sorry" she went back to the kitchen to check how long we were actually waiting, only to return for the apology. Considering 3 of our dishes were the same deep fried squid, I just can't understand how it took THAT long to be served. Its becoming a common theme in bars/ restaurants around here lately.

Having had a few good meals in the WestBar last year it was a shame that when I visited in December 2012 I had the experience of finding a large sliver of plastic in my meal. It had obviously broken off of a food container. I called the waiter over who apologised and took it into the kitchen. The kitchen has a large serving window and I was able to see him hand it to the chef. Appallingly the chef looked at it, shrugged and then threw it on the floor behind him!
Nobody came back to apologise or make any attempt to put things right.
I'm sure it was a reasonably isolated incident but still one that makes me far less likely to return or go there with friends.
