We went here a couple of weeks ago and to honest it was pretty awful. The atmosphere was brutal with MTV blaring in the background. The service was wasn't great either. Although the guy who served us seemed friendly, when he was bringing our food to the table he dropped the egg out of my burger. He was really apologetic and said he'd get me a new one right away. 20 minutes later we called him over to complain we hadn't go it yet and that the rest of our food was cold. He seemed shocked we hadn't got it, and it still took another 5 minutes. He took the sweet potato fries off the bill, but it was simply too little too late. For a place that prides itself in it's burgers it was a joke. The meat was dry, unseasoned and flavourless. I had asked for the market selection bread and I got a regular burger bap. My girlfriend ordered the garlic Parmesan fries, they were so soaked in garlic and oily that half of them were inedible. She actually felt ill after she ate some of them. She also had a cocktail which cost 8 euro, it was a disgusting, way too much lemon juice and not enough alcohol! Over all we had a terrible experience, and definitely wont be going back!!
