Four friends dined choosing a variety of courses and foods. Everyone was pleased with their meal. The restaurant was recommended by the hotel, which we mentioned as we arrived (without reservation). We were seated nearly immediately.

Staff disinterested and unwelcoming. Much more interested in clearing tables and setting up than providing reasonable customer service. Food not requiring any input - tinned anchovies and mixed salad were acceptable. Cooked food was almost inedible especially the roast chicken. Once the main course was...More
