My husband and I returned to The Winding Stair after having had several pleasant experiences there but I am disappointed to report that I was very unhappy with my meal. I went with the chowder to start which was ok but had more chorizo than fish. My husband had the smoked fish which he enjoyed. I had the steak for my main and at €26.95 I was very disppointed as it looked like something you would be served up in a roadside diner. The chips and fried onions were very greasy and there was a large lump of butter sitting on top which really put me off. The steak was nice but overall it was a very unappetizing plate of food and I only ate the steak. The waiter just said are you all finished here as he whipped the plates away & never enquired if there was a problem when he saw most of the food was uneaten. My husband had the filo pastry which he enjoyed. The wine and coffees were very nice. Overall I was disappointed with my meal and the fact that I didnt really have a chance to mention this to our waiter as he was so busy.

Having visited Indie Spice several times in the past and enjoying the experience we were very disappointed last night! First of all they had put our name down even though we had rung earlier & booked. We we're put sitting at a table were the seat was completely torn & worn away even though there were plenty of ok seats as restaurant was half empty. Service was extremely slow with zero enthusiasm of staff. Prices were very high €19.50 for a biryani! Other dishes between €17-€18.50 were mainly sauce, very little meat & rice is extra. Nice to see they still giving a complimentary drink at end! Needs a lot of improvement before we go back!
