A stunning venue on a sunny afternoon spoiled by incompetent management.
Table for 4 had booked at 1.30 for Sunday lunch. Left standing around until 1.55.
Asked for water with slices of lime and a filter coffee with milk on the side. The water and coffee arrived; the lime and milk didn't and had to be reordered.
There is no bread unless one has pita bread which is clearly ony purchased to accompany a mezze for 2 (which couln't be ordered for 3).
The two fish pies were short on fish and long on potato and were only part eaten. The waiter asked if they were ok and told that there was a disproportionate amount of potato to fish (1 prawn and 2 pieces of salmon).
The sea bass was delicious but (1) undercooked and (2) tepid.
The manager appeared. What might have been an apology was an explanation that the fish portion is standard; we had been given extra potato. We smiled politely. The man was clearly an idiot.
Eventually a waiter took orders for deserts.
Shortly before 4, the manager asked if we could vacate the table as it was needed for other diners. By way of apology, the two cups of tea and one cup of coffee were knocked off the price.
For the first time in a very long time 4 “foodies” agreed unanimously not to pay the “optional” service tip which had been added to the bill.
