A surprise birthday dinner for my friend.
The food was average:Sausage Platter
A nice selection of 4 different sausages served with Potato Salad.Pork Escaloupe with Pepper Sauce
Average escaloupe, a little greasy. Pepper sauce was ok, quite sweet. served with fries and side salad.
Food must have been very salty as myself and my friends felt terribly thirsty for the remainder of the night.
The service was terrible:Happy Hour
Happy Hour finishes at 8pm, my friends arrived at 7:55pm and asked to order drinks. When they asked to confirm it was still Happy Hour the waitress told them, "No, I'm sorry, Happy Hour has finished now". It was 7:55pm
. After remind her of the time and the time happy hour finishes she said ok you can order one drink
. Not one drink per person at the table (that would have been fair enough). She meant that only one person could order a drink that would be counted as happy hour. Ridiculous. After, disagreeing and asking to see the manager she finally relented and allowed us to order our happy hour drinks.
If you want Happy Hour to finish at 7:55pm, don't write 8pm on the menu.Cockney Rhyming Slang
This wasn't really bad service, just a funny thing that happened. My friend said the waitress "Can we order?
she said yes and walked away, strange. She returned a minute late with a glass of "Soda Water"Know your sausages?
Waitresses seemed to have no knowledge of the differences between different types of sausage, this made ordering quite difficult as some of our party weren't familiar with the different german varieties of sausage.Birthday Cake Fiasco
A birthday cake was taken to the restaurant the day before in preparation. After, finishing dinner we quietly asked the waitress if they could bring out the cake. There several problems:
- It took them about 20mins to bring the cake out.
-They brought the plates and forks out before
the cake, good way to spoil the surprise of a birthday cake!
- THEY DIDN'T LIGHT THE CANDLES
The cake came out, noone had lit the candles. They had the decency to give us a lighter so we could light them ourselves, the my friend had to sit there for 5 mins watching as we lit the candles on his surprise cake!
