“Dreadful”
Review of MBar & Bistro

Restaurant details
Reviewed 9 July 2016 via mobile

We ate here on our first evening having arrived late afternoon and wondered why there was no one else eating here. When we got our meals we wondered no longer.

Worse was to come as the complementary hotel breakfast (this cafe is actually part of the Ranee Suites hotel) is truly dreadful. We stayed for five nights and got a reasonable breakfast on only one occasion.

The service was slow and lacklustre, the wait for the meal was in every case over half an hour. Water for tea on the only occasion they were at all busy was luke warm and the coffee more like dish water.

On our last day we were not committed to an early sightseeing departure and we walked out on the French Raisin Toast it was so bad. This dish should involve egg and not packet white bread so I photographed it.

This review is only of the cafe, not the hotel which was fine.

This is a reasonably well decorated eating place with a cosy ambience. But there are signs showing that the kitchen are struggling with its management. The food are not served to its standard and the freshness of meats and green are not there. There is a need to buckle up on the kitchen or else the place will run to the ground sooner than expected. Prices on the menu are steep considering the quality and cooking skills.

Food generally good but could be better as eating outside is so cheap, it is difficult but why pay for food that you can get outside a lot cheaper

May lack atmosphere but after eating here twice I would consider it petty to pick fault. The restaurant is clean and comfortable. The food while not exciting perhaps, is good and the service attentive. It's also reasonably priced, including the wine, compared to local pricing.
