A hard sell

  • No, I would not go back!

I usually avoid restaurants where the proprietor seizes upon me before I have even opened the door but was swayed by the display of desserts at the front of the dining room and the French doors opening onto a warm spring evening. I should have followed my instincts. The calamari was tough and served with an unexceptional red sauce and no lemon wedges. Overcooked prawns and more tough squid made the black linguini with seafood a lacklustre experience and left me with no appetite for the desserts that initially looked so inviting. I paid the bill and left, keen to put the experience behind me, only to find that after walking one block, I was being pursued by the waiter who was demanding more money because he had miscalculated the tab. He offered no apologies for his mistake. Poor food, high prices and lousy service!
