We have visited this restaurant on 3 previous occasions and had enjoyed the food and the good service, so this prompted us to decide to celebrate Mother’s Day by eating at this restaurant. I made a booking to ensure that we would get a table. On arrival there was no one to seat us as most of the waiter/waitresses were either clearing or setting tables. My family and I had to try to get their attention in order to get them to seat us. Once seated, the waitress went back to clearing a nearby table, leaving us without menus. We had to once again call a waitress to get us menus. At no time did the waitress mention the specials of the day which was soup as a start, mutton curry and rice or seafood paella with a dessert for R115. Luckily I had seen the special on their Facebook page and so requested it. Thereafter it took another 15 minutes for our drinks to arrive. We were then told that they had run out of lemonade for the passionfruit and lemonade and that only one of us would be able to get this drink. We agreed to settle for other drinks. 15 Minutes later only 2 soups starters arrived instead of the 3 we ordered. First the waitress tried to say that we only ordered 2, but then realised that we had ordered 3 of everything. She went back into the kitchen and 10 minutes later after we had finished our soup, my Mother’s soup arrived. The butternut soup was tasty, but cold. Once our starters were completed, at no stage did the waitress come to check to see if we were ready for the main course. So again it was another 15 minute wait for the main course to arrive. The mutton curry portion was fine, but there was too few pieces of meat in it. The only course that arrived early was the dessert. It arrived even before we were finished with the main course. The dessert consisted of a piece of cake with cold custard poured over it. On the whole this was a most disappointing experience. I’m not sure if it was only because the restaurant was full and because it was Mother’s Day that the service was so poor or if the standards have truly dropped since my last visit in November 2015.
