A service catastrophe

Posted by Pi on April 4, 2009

Would you pay 26 euros per person for a dinner that began serving the starters two hours late, even with reservations, and had average food?  Some friends recounted a recent atrocious restaurant experience just like that at Les Salons de l’Atalaide in St. Gilles.  Some people were done with their entire meals before others started theirs (this was around 10pm at night, so you can imagine their hunger), and I’m sure more than one diner was enraged about it.

Maybe this was an off night, and maybe not.  It’s too bad, too, because the ambiance seems classy enough, including the upstairs bar.  Food experiences there could have so much potential.  Looks like another incident of potential wasted.
