They could not find my booking - which got us off to a bad start. Nor did it help that two waitresses could not understand my Scottish accent....which is generally thought to be quite clear. The table we were eventually found was in between four others - left, right, back and front, and people squeezing out or between them apologised three times for bumping us. Meanwhile, next to the window, an unoccupied table remained empty until minutes before our departure, when an old friend arrived and was seated at it. I asked if he had booked."No," he said. "Looks as though someone didn't turn up."
I had the lemon sole with new potatoes. It was beautifully cooked and presented, but the sole was very, very small, and three new potatoes halved was stingy....especially since I had told the waitress I was very hungry, and been assured there would be plenty.
The petit fours - asked what they were. The waitress explained what the term "petit fours" meant...tiny sweets, she said. When I asked again what the sweets were, she summoned help, because she did not know. When they came, they were lovely.
The restaurant is "Scottish" in name and location only. Cullen skink is not the only dish!
