caveat emptor - eat somewhere else Mar 27, 2010
A new eating venue in Letterkenny, we arrived full of expectations and ready to be impressed and exactly on time for our booking. We left very unfulfilled. First impressions were good, high ceilings, black marble pillars and checkerboard marble floor tiles, airy and Mediterranean. That was the high-point! We elected to order two side dishes and a main, a beer and a glass of house red. What we got was 2 portions on mediocre bruschetta (at over €11!) TWO main dishes and possibly the worst aubergine parmesan I've tasted. The tagliatelle with chicken and ham was well cooked but with a strange aftertaste and over sprinkled with parsley. Not a basil leaf in sight! The salad with Tuna was 'over leafy' and boosted from around €12 to over €16 without our consent. The wine was cold, the carafe of water was plonked on the table without any glasses! Just shoddy and like we were an inconvenience rather than the people who pay the rent and wages! Turns out the waitress was the co-owner! In these recessionary times we need to make customers welcome, bend the menu a little, bring water and bread, just help customers feel appreciated. The first time in three years I left no tip. I could say so much more (like about the non-existent wine list), but will end with... eat somewhere else. And finally, the bill, an astronomical €64, i'd say worth about half that.
