“Good food but service was slow”

Admirals Restaurant
Ranked #21 of 26 Restaurants in Coromandel
Restaurant details
Reviewed 31 March 2012

We were there on a Friday night when the bar downstairs was fairly busy. Having looked at the menu which was very inviting we decided to try the restaurant. Our main courses were excellent - the mussels was a large portion with a lovely sauce, and the hot stone seafood plate was amazing with mussels, scallops and prawns. We ordered one of the shared seafood platters for a starter - oysters, prawns, mussels and scallops all sounded very enticing, however when it came the whole lot was battered! When such great, fresh local seafood is available, battering it just seems a waste. Service was average - we were seated and our order was taken very quickly, however then waited more than 20 minutes for drinks to arrive. Food was equally slow to arrive and the whole experience took over 2 hours, when there were maybe 20 people in the restaurant in total. However our waitress was apologetic and the staff were friendly.

After waiting 50 minutes for our meal my wife who unlike me is a very patient person went to find out what was going on, we paid for our drinks and walked out.

Stone Grill, raw meat we cook ourselves and some prepared vegetables what could take 50 minutes??

If there was a reason it certainly wasnot explained to us.

Had some great eating experiences in Coromandel this wasn't one of them.

Stone grill cooking, which was fun, but may not be to everyrones' taste. Nice wines and friendly Scottish waitresses.
