I could not believe how packed the restaurant was on a Friday night. There was a table of at least 20 diners celebrating someone's birthday and I believe the staff was struggling to keep up with the number of patrons. They looked like they were run off their feet.
As a result of the 'busyness' of the restaurant, it did take a while for our orders to be taken. In addition to that delay, it also took a while for our drinks to arrive. But once the food started getting served, the time delay was less obvious. But the food was good and MO and I had a good time catching up on each other's news.
We decided to share an entree of bruschetta. For mains, I had the Fresh Herb and Dijon encrusted Lamb Rack served with rosemary and red jus with potato mash. MO had the Veal San Remo with king prawns, smoked salmon, asparagus, garlic mash served with a cream sauce. Both dishes were very tasty and we finished the plates off. My lamb was tender, juicy and perfectly cooked with a touch of pink.

We were so full after our main dishes but we did not want to pass up on desserts, so we shared a dessert. We chose the Vanilla Creme Brûlée with biscotti and vanilla ice cream served with raspberry coulis. The creme brûlée was delicious and the sugar was beautifully caramelised.

I must admit that the food was good, the fellowship was good but the service was just a little underwhelming. One more waiter added to the team would have eased the load plus the diners would have been attended to a little faster than the actual time taken.
Happy belated birthday MO! It was good to see you and enjoy a nice meal with you.
