We were staying at Poppies Hotel and since we were impressed by the hotel's standards we decided to book a table at the restaurant.
Unfortunately the restaurant standards don't come any close to the hotel standards.
The setting is beautiful so for that thumbs up. But both service and food were lacking.
We were welcomed at the door and asked whether we wanted smoking or non smoking meaning that our table was not even reserved. When we gently refused the first table offered as there were children on it and we wanted quiet the hostess looked at us badly...for what reason we have no idea.
The waitress taking our order took a while to come and we had to ask for the wine list as it was not offered to us. The waitress attending to our table featured only to take our order and to get our bill..in between we had several other persons coming..we were never asked how the meal was proceeding.
Food was nothing to write home about. All dishes served were piping hot so we had to wait to start eating. The spring rolls were way to oily, the pasta was small for the price but tasted good and the veg curry was far too spicy.
The finished plates remained infront of us for long and were only cleared when we asked ourselves for the dessert menu. Once we decided what to take we waited and waited..no one turned up so we asked someoene to get us the bill..which is when the original waitress came. When we left the money she counted it infont of us..a big no no! She seemed pretty upset there were no tips but we never leave tips if we are not happy with the service.
Breakfast: we ordered room service. Delivery was on time but we had another disappointment here too. We ordered eggs benedict and they came with ham underneath...and i am vegeterian. I did not say anything and just removed the ham thinking maybe it's the way they are served but when my husband checked the menu no ham was mentioned.
