A beautiful table in the window overlooking the promenade and the sea. What a pity the eating experience doesn’t match the setting.
The tables in the window were crammed together and it was very difficult for diners to get in and out of their tables. The food was very mediocre and the portions small. I had Seared Scallops, which were supposed to come with Sautéed Potatoes, Roasted Vine Tomatoes, Grilled Asparagus and a Lemon and Dill Sauce. I received- 4 very small scallops – which were served with a couple of small boiled spuds and three undercooked asparagus. no tomatoes or lemon and dill sauce – cost £17. The Seafood Tagliatelle was appalling – watery and almost inedible. We then had to wait half an hour for our puds, whilst the staff discussed their social life. Most of the staff appeared to be about 16 and had no idea how to serve us. The coffee was produced from one of those machines you get in Tescos cafe and was undrinkable. A restaurant having the aspirations that this one appears to have should at least be able to afford a decent espresso machine.
Anyone who rates this restaurant 4 stars must be easily pleased. A very disappointing experience and I will never go there again or recommend it.
It is obviously getting business because there is no other seafood restaurant in the area with similar sea views, and the British are prepared to put up with bad food and service.
