There is something so bland about Anderida that it makes it difficult to remember your dining experience almost instaneously, let alone a few months later. I'm in agreement with Anoo's review, the archaic beige expanse that is the dining room, doesnt excite the eye and unfortunately neither does the uninspiring menu. Nevertheless as guests of the hotel, we ordered away with the hope that the plates we would be presented with would suitably surprise us. Unfortunately ordering in itself is a feat at this venue, with two out of three waiters doing their best to avoid eye contact.
After having conversed with the one that did seem to want to provide any real service we were served our starter of salmon mousse with citron jelly and various other colourful emulsions. This was a delicate plate of fresh flavours and quite impressive, almost contradicting the outdated decor and stuffy atmosphere of the restaurant. However a main of sea bass on tomato and coriander cous cous which followed, lacked any real substance.
A rather confusing restaurant which aims to recreate the innovation seen in most top end London restaurants but is unfortunately let down by a dull lifeless atmopshere and unmotivated waiting staff. One to miss.
