  • Rating Shocking Service! (Rating 3.0/5)
    This was our first visit. We decided to go for a drink before dinner. The bar area is extremely nice with a lovely ambience & candles lit all around. We were greeted in the bar area & available tables were pointed out to us. Bar staff were attentive & the drinks good quality. Unfortunately this is where the good service ended. We went upstairs to the restaurant. No drink was offered at the time of seating. Order was only taken when I finally managed to catch the eye of the waiter. We ordered tapas & wine. We were given the wrong wine initially. My husband asked for the olives to be brought to the table immediately. When these didn't arrive, we chased them up. The waiter appeared to have difficulty understanding us. Initially he thought we wished to cancel the olives & then he thought we wanted bread with them. Neither of which is what we asked for. They eventually came with the rest of the food & had bread with them! The garlic bread with cheese we asked for was covered in tomatoes & it was dropped on the table whilst being served. This was rectified immediately. Some of the dishes were also on the cool side rather than piping hot. Despite this the food was generally tasty. It's a shame that the service badly lets the restaurant down. Will definitely return for drinks but will probably give the food a miss in future.
