A huge disappointment
28 Feb 2008
I visited this place on a Sunday with my veggie/non-dairy friend and her non veggie partner, with high hopes that we would all have an enjoyable meal. The four 'main courses' on the menu were really just one but with a variation of the stuff in the middle - as there were three of us so we tried a fair sample - tasteless setien, bland veg. pate with pumpkin tart (rock hard pastry) and goats cheese, again virtually tasteless. The pate and cheese were presented on a tiny slice of stale bread/toast. Each of the three options were surrounded by: grated carrot and cabbage soaked in vinegar, raw red cabbage, plain burnt lentils, cooked onion and non-descript rice. One of my (non veg) friends asked for chilli sauce and was told that the idea was to appreciate the flavour of the vegetables - hhmm! Service was so slow - each table had their order taken and prepared, served, before the next table was dealt with - not worth the wait. The food was bland and unimaginative and not even filling. Wine was nice but we didn't bother waiting for dessert.

Great food but couldn't go back!

Arrived at opening time so service prompt and efficient - food was good although not cheap - veg paella and a tasty cassoulet. Even a vegan apple tart. Would have returned but my very beautiful veg/non dairy friend was hassled so much for a date by the persistent waiter that we dare not go back. It spoiled the evening and made us feel very uncomfortable. Not a place we could recommend for unaccompanied females - even in their late 40s!
