Restaurant details
Reviewed 29 September 2014

A crowd of 14 people, we visited this restaurant for supper on the evening of Saturday 27th September 2014. The staff were friendly enough and pushed together tables to accommodate all of us at one long table.
We ordered various dishes, and one of our party ordered duck breast which we were told was a special of the day.
When the food arrived, the person who had ordered the duck took one taste of it and said the duck was either off, or badly cooked and she sent it straight back. Nothing more was said - she wasn't offered a replacement dish.
The rest of us ate our rather mediocre meal and when the bill arrived we found that the duck had been charged for. We pointed this out to the waitron who said she would phone the chef who had long since (we were told) gone home. The waitron returned and said that the chef had told her on the phone that there was nothing wrong with the duck and we were to pay for it. This went back and forth for about half an hour until we eventually walked out, refusing to pay and with a very bitter taste in our mouths which was not from the food. We told the waitron where we were staying (next door at Katarina's) and told her the chef was welcome to visit us the following day.
He did not
I would most definitely NOT recommend this restaurant, there are plenty of very nice eateries with a very different attitude in the little town, Enjoy them instead.
