Five of us arrived for lunch today. We were seated in the bar area and ordered drinks. Food order was taken here then we were seated at our table, which was a bit squashed. We were seated on a round table for 4. Starters appeared fairly quickly. Three of us had the mushroom starter from the GF menu and one had the mozzarella and tomato. My partner had mussels. We waited an absolute age for our main. Everyone around us was getting their mains. After what must have been a good 45 min my partner went to chase up our food order which came out quite quickly after that. I dont know what the delay was. We were given a bottle of red wine on the house due to the delay in food. We had also requested a side order, which we had to ask for again after we had all be served our main meal which was also given at no charge. Two guest had the steak, cooked med rare, one had roast beef, one had roast lamb and I had the oven baked cod. Meals were ok. My cod was a little overcooked. Steaks were average and a bit burnt looking on the outside having being cooked on a charcoal grill. My partner had the assiette of desserts, which we followed with coffee. On receiving the bill we checked that we hadnt been charged for the said items, which we hadnt but we had been charged for two bottles of merlot, and we had only had one. The bill was amended when we pointed this out.
So although we basically enjoyed the meal. The long wait, food not quite cooked as it should be and error on the bill for average food would make me think again about returning. Bartellas used to be better. We hadnt visited for a couple of years, its a shame as this restaurant used to be very good.
