We went here on Sunday with a Grab one voucher. The restaurant is upstairs in a big cold room with no atmosphere. We were met by a very pleasant waitress who did her best to loo after us during our visit. We ordered mussels to share and waited 40 mins for this ! They were overcooked and in what I could only describe as a bowl of tasteless cream, worse still we found 2 unopened ones in the bottom of the bowl.The bread however was freshly baked and delicious. Our mains arrived after another hour, the chef was busy due to Fathers Day. While the steak was nice the sauce was totally tasteless, carmalised onions burnt, and the potato gratin was pickled with salt.My friend had the chicken, overcooked and dry but served with a nice selection of vegetables and potatoes.The restaurant menu is totally overpriced and this restaurant has a serious amount of work to do to come up to an acceptable standard.
