Went there last weekend to have an afternoon tea, because we wanted to use our Entertainment Book Coupon. Was told that we couldn't use it. Only for meals. Okay...i guess it's acceptable. My kids wanted ice creams, so we walked up to the ice cream bar and spotted a fly. The waitress saw the fly, but didn't care less about it. She looked pretty tired and had no smile on her face so we didn't want to bother her much. Then we saw another waitress went to a table and took an order at the table. So i asked if we should order at the counter or table. She said rudely, "At the counter! I'm serving another customer now." But why did she take order at the table for other customers??? Not coming back there!
It's taken me a little while to write this review as our experience was so mixed. This seems to reflect other experiences on this site. Some dishes were very nice - pork belly - some were distinctly ordinary - soups tasty but full of noodles and little else, meat fatty, salads ditto and noodles and not much else and too many hot dishes arriving at the table tepid at best.<br> Place wasn't busy and service fine .... but barely eaten dishes removed without query or comment ... if they don't really care if you enjoyed their food why care to return <br> There are lots of lovely Vietnamese and other Asian food opportunities on Gouger St and nearby - I'll try those next time
The Apothecary 1878 is a must try for fine food enthusiasts in Adelaide. <br> Plush velvet lounges, marble table tops and mahogany cabinets take you back to another time. Lights are dimmed, surroundings cosy and romantic, the perfect location for a date.<br> I recommend trying the large banquet option, allow the chef to cook your degustational surprise while you sit back and relax. I found this option well priced considering the number of meals and attention to detail. Dishes were packed with flavour, a real trip for the taste buds. The wine list is extensive and do try a cocktail! <br> I have visited several times and have never had a dull experience.
Went to Melt with my husband as it came up on zomato as a great place for pizza. The service was fantastic however the pizza was incredibly bland. We had the bianco which tasted like pizza base with a bit of rosemary and the el diablo which was equally as disappointing. For a place called Melt there is a disturbing lack of cheese on both pizzas we ordered. The tapas chicken wings were nice but not enough to bring us back again.
This establishment has in the past delivered top quality food and service. <br> The food last night was no exception. <br> The Jamon was great and the bread perfectly char toasted. The t-bone and scotch fillet were perfectly seasoned, full flavored and cooked. The sides were also perfect.<br> <br> The service was a different story. Appalling.<br> Our napkins were left on our plates, I had to ask the waitress for the specials that was explained as "1.2kg steak that's good for two people". Way to sell it to me. <br> The same staff member also brought the wine list during the meal, never to return to take the order. Everything about the night seemed like it was below her. <br> I am by no means expecting staff to be servants or slaves, but when paying top dollar at such a well known restaurant, I do expect some sort of above average service. Last night's service was terrible.<br> I will be back as the food is still 10/10, but I guess I'll just have to expect the poor attitude and service.<br>
One of the loveliest cafes I've ever been too! I started to get a bit nervous as my friends were late but everyone made me feel incredibly welcome! And whom I can only assume was Luigi was so kind! It was a generally great experience. On top of that I'm also a pretty fussy eater, and while a lot of the menu didn't appeal to me, it would have easily appealed to many. I ended up getting the fruit waffle , and at first I was like oh no, I can't even stomach pancakes, but the combination of yogurt and maple syrup tasted AMAZING and all the fruit was perfectly ripe! It all went so well together! Would recommend to everyone!
This is a really super cosy pub on a wintery night, so we thought, lets have dinner here. Service friendly enough. We ordered beef guiness pie and pulled pork burger. I exchanged my chips with the pie for mash and mushy peas, which was not a problem. When our meals arrived, they looked promising enough! Here’s the but! My mash was lumpy and my teeny weeny serve of mushy peas were cold! I mean fridge cold! I had to send these back to the kitchen for reheating, I waited about 15 minutes for them to return to their rightful place on my plate, but alas, still no sign, we had to flag down the waitress to retrieve the long lost peas, ah finally, of course, I had finished most of my meal by then! The pie itself was quite okay with plenty of meat inside. Foodie mate mentioned that the pulled pork burger was quite dry but okay, looks impressive though! Chips that went with it were undercooked, I do not, for the life of me, understand, how any cook could not get chips right!! Beats me peeps! Would return for a drink, but probably not for the food!
