In short the service was terrible and the food not much better. Our waiter was a nice guy but was sadly not very good at his job. He needed prompting on everything. When we did receive the menus we were both disappointed as there was nothing that really appealed to either of us. We both decided to go for pumpkin soup followed by salmon off the (very limited) set menu. The meal began with a complimentary amuse bouche, which was actually the pumpkin soup served luke warm in a chipped espresso type cup. Then our waiter brought out our starters, not what we had ordered but prawns wrapped in filo pastry. We told him about his error which he apologised for, and he offered to replace them, but we were in a rush and seeing as we' now sampled the soup which was presented as the amuse bouche, we told him not to bother. He very nicely said he'd take the service charge off our bill which was appreciated. The starter was not very tasty and the flavours of basil honey prawns and filo pastry did not go well together. We then moved on to the main, which was salmon wrapped in a banana leaf served with shredded cabbage, again not very tasty, the salmon, banana leaf and cabbage did not compliment each other. In fact it was horrible. We then asked for the bill as we just wanted to get out of the place and away from the smell of cabbage. It arrived, but we'd not been given the set menu price, and had been overcharged for our drinks. The waiter was again very apologetic and said there was a problem with the computer. The bill came back again but the drinks charge had still not been changed. The process was repeated, another apology and he said he'd take off a drink as an apology. Very nice of him but we'd have preferred to just have been charged the correct amount and made a speedy exit. It's a shame as they have a great venue and location, just let down by their food and service. We would never return and would strongly recommend against going there.
