Given its prime location and the beautiful balmy evening it was certainly busy. We were greeted warmly though by the maitre d' and he said an outdoor table would be available soon or we could sit side by side at a narrow bar on the terrace. We were quite happy with the bar and made our way there. As soon as we sat down, we were informed a table was ready so we got up and moved there.
After a promising start service wise, sadly it seemed to deteriorate as we weren't given menus for a while and then had to wait a long time to place an order. One of the waiters that was in our area was always very smiley but never available and not really all that attentive. The maitre d' obviously noticed we were waiting for a while so he came to give us menus.
The steak was pretty good and the bearnaise sauce had a good tang to it. On it's own the sauce tasted a bit odd but with the char of the steak it came into its own.
The whole flounder was of an impressive size and the accompanying garlic roast potatoes were tasty although looked a bit ugly. The fish sadly was bland in flavour leading me to suspect it may have been frozen rather than fresh.
The olive oil mash was tasty; a little grey in colour and like the pumpkin puree looked a bit grainy.
I think for the prices they charge there are other places serving better food and with slicker service. We enjoyed our meal enough; probably not enough to return regularly. I don't think it was good enough to recommend this place but I liked it enough that if someone else suggested it, I'd go along.
