We tried the bar side (as opposed to the restaurant itself), where there is a restricted version of the full menu. Nobody came to receive us, so we sat at a convenient table. As it was early evening, there were just a few diners. Nevertheless, rather than a welcome when the head waiter appeared, we were interrogated brusquely about our booking status and whether we were intending to dine. Though we decided to stay, the staff remained unfriendly but also inefficient: a sherry ordered as aperitif came only after a reminder and well into the first course; vegetables were forgotten and had to be found, again on reminder (no apology). The main course was tepid – a waiter problem, for there was nothing wrong with the basic quality of the food. A shame that they seem to think they don't need to try too hard, in a location where punters will always be dropping in.
