We arrived as a party of three to Brasserie Sixty6 at about five o'clock. "Have you booked?" asked the maitre d'. We hadn't. Oh dear, where was she going to seat us in this (almost empty) restaurant??
Once the inconvenience of our arrival had been dealt with, we settled down to look at the menu. Three menus to be precise. The two adults in the party chose from the €29.99 menu which offered starter, main and either dessert or a cheeky cocktail. Our ten year old didn't have a child's menu to choose from so opted for sausage and chips.
My mushroom soup starter was tasty. The hake main was enjoyable also, if a little salty. I had a berry cocktail rather than a dessert. Very nice. So far, so okay.
As the evening was progressing I had noticed couples being offered tables that would have had them squeezed between other diners. Why???? The place was still not busy. Two couples objected to this senseless seating and were moved to better tables.
Our so-so Brasserie Sixty6 experience was coming to an end. Time to ask for the bill. The waitress (maitre d') who had begrudgingly seated us presented me with the bill. Her smile was still sadly absent. I took out my credit card. We then sat for ten minutes. Was the meal free?? Was the grumpy reception being compensated for by a free dinner?? I doubted it. After the afore mentioned wait of ten minutes, during which I was holding both bill and credit card in my hand for all waiters to behold, we stood up and started putting our coats on. Lo and behold our grumpy waitress appeared. Oh dear. The inconvenience of pesky customers insisting upon paying a bill.
The shame of it is I always tip. Not tonight. I usually recommend a restaurant if the food is tasty. Not tonight.
Nice food can be ruined by grumpy service.
We won't be back.
