Food RatingHated the food! Service RatingHated the service! Ambience RatingHated the ambience!

This place is infested with RATS (no not mice, but rats). I was eating there about 3 weeks ago, and I spotted a RAT in the corner of my eyes. The waiters and waitresses came by as I screamed, only to have them ONLY be concerned about "where the rat has been for the past while, since they haven't seen them around". I was absolutely disgusted to find them fully aware of the infestation, that they even know where the rat had dug holes around the place. They didn't even apologize for it or offer any sort of courtesy. They know they have rats running around, but they refuse to do anything about it (which explains the dim lights, so people wont spot them) One of the waitresses even had the audacity to say that "it's no big deal, it's normal". No it's not normal to eat with rats at a restaurant! DO NOT EAT HERE!

I've been to this restaurant several times now and have never had a bad time. I've been with groups of 30 and for romantic meals with my girlfriend and have always managed to be impressed - the service alone is a good enough reason to eat here, it just helps that the food is just as good!

The latest occasion, June 2005, I had a nice meal with my girlfriend. We both chose the 'brie in filo pastry' to start and we both enjoyed some fresh bread while we waited for it. The lady who served us said that it might take longer than the other choices but we carried on regardless. We were surprised when the starters arrived as it did not seem like long at all and as usual they were delicious.

I had one of the specials just for a change, a 'whole baby chicken in a cheese sauce and spinach'; when it arraived I was shocked at the amount of chicken on the plate, it really was a whole baby chicken :)

Pip had the 'salmon and new potatoes' from the normal menu, she ate every last piece so I gather it was nice. When the lady serving us came by to collect the plates she asked if everything was okay and we both nodded contently.

With our meal we had a bottle of rose wine and afterwards we each had a coffee. The total including the service charge at 12.5% came to 72. If you asked me before I saw the bill I would have said the whole lot would come to about 90; sometimes it is nice to be wrong...
