I probably won't return
. In fact, I was left with a stomach ache and cramps for most of the night because the food was just too oily.
The restaurant is very small and narrow accommodating only 6 tables of 4. The waitress cramped everyone in the same area so that it would be easier for her to serve.
The tables next to us were so close and loud, our table could barely carry a conversation.
The presentation of the food was ok, but looked far better than it tasted. All the dishes lacked flavour and were way too oily.
We ordered 2x lunch sets roughly $78.00 each, it came with:
Cream of Pumpkin soup - cold + runny
Salad - one cherry tomato and 1 lettuce leaf - is that still considered a salad?
Pan-fried Seabass - cold + too oily
Duck Breast Risotto - cold + too oily
Mango mousse topped with blueberry foam - it looked like soap and was warm!
Skim Milk Latte - cold + bitter
Hoegaarden - flat - probably the best thing on the menu
Big plates - small portions
Service was polite, but clearly inexperienced. Nobody in the restaurant spoke English, although the establishment serves western cuisine.
The bartender was constantly looking over the waitresses shoulder and walking around the restaurant like he was the boss. Very uncomfortable environment. I just couldn't wait to leave. Not once did we receive service with a smile.
I think I'll stick to Central or Causeway Bay for my Saturday high tea from now on.
