I said what about serving us he actually said go away. Obviously serving 2 instead of 4 is more profitable. I asked him for a business card and he forced it into my hand just to add to the sense of not being welcome. Then he pushed us out. I suggest you go elsewhere for coffee!!!
The food was excellent, beautifully prepared and piping hot. (The lamb was particularly fine). The ambience was delightful.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone and we shall certainly return - whatever the occasion.
Arrived, and spent 5 minutes waiting whilst the staff studiously ignored us before we got our table.
Then spent another 10 minutes waiting for menus, and actually had to ask the manager for our menus.
Then, had an extraordinarily surly waiter, who redefined rudeness. Our request for non-alcoholic drinks led to us being treated like pariahs.
The food itself was highly variable - the bruschetta needed a pneumatic drill to penetrate the bread, the fillet steak was well cooked otherwise.
The highlight of the evening was watching the manager and our waiter almost come to blows arguing about something in the middle of the restaurant.
We gave up at dessert, to be honest the primary problem seemed to be lack of staffing, poor management and lack of coordination between the waiters.
We have been there for coffee, and it has been very good, but we now feel badly let down by the restaurant.
