Unfortunately, a few wee details really let Café Rogano down: background music was a little too loud to be really considered 'background', and while the service was generally good, small details were overlooked - taking away the menu after ordering etc. A requested jug of water for the table never arrived and staff unfortunately didn't check tables to see if the food was satisfactory as they should have. Food was excellent apart from cheese plate, which was a total disaster - chalky brie and slimy cheddar which tasted as though it had been bought from a supermarket budget selection and served straight from the fridge. That said, the food was otherwise excellent, but for a restaurant of Rogano's caliber one would expect artisan cheeses and home-made accompaniments, not branded wafers and oatcakes. This is perhaps why Rogano has lacked the accolades other parts of the experience might merit. I did resolve to mention this to the staff, but unfortunately, the absence of table checking and feedback cards meant it would not have been possible to do so without making a fuss - something I didn't want to do as it might have spoiled the meal for my partner. Have been before and enjoyed it, but might think twice about booking it as a 'fine dining' experience in future.
