We went to Shell Bay on Tuesday for lunch. Very disappointed. The restaurant looked fab and menu was lovely. But as we only want light snack we opted for the bistro. The setting was lovely the tall dark haired waitress was excellent but unfortunately that was as good as it got. The bistro staff were at best disinterested and at worse rude. The food was terrible, the only requirement of the 'chef' was to be successfully open a bag of salad let it go limp and place it onto two tin plates accompanied by two sets of wooden cutlery. The prawn and crayfish salad consisted of a pile of limp salad leaves with a few frozen prawns and crayfish tails (not particularly good quality, dare I say cheap!) placed on top, the lime dressing was ok. My husband had a Greek salad which consisted of the same limp salad leaves with a few (4) lumps of feta cheese. We shared a plate of calamari which was breaded in rings (I think frozen) and deep fried until almost burnt with a nasty after taste of burnt fat. We would have liked to raise our comments to the staff but unfortunately nobody was interested enough to ask if everything was ok. It wasn't busy whilst we were there so no excuse. A real shame as a fab location but poor staff letting it down. We won't return.
