“Maybe they were having an off day?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 February 2011

With all the staff working at a kitchen bench, you have to shout out to get their attention as they have their backs to the restaurant. Maybe they should hang a mirror so they can see their customers.
The Eggs Benedict were average, although at least they were served on English muffins, not a bagel. Could have done without the capsicum sauce, not sure how it's relevant to the dish.
They get points for serving trim milk though.
