I recently took my boyfriend to the Prince Bonaparte for a birthday meal. The atmosphere was buzzing and the staff friendly.
I was, however, really disappointed with the service. It took ages to order the food and drinks at the bar - I was initially overcharged which was then corrected.
The starter arrived at the same time as the main course! The chef said when they are busy they can't do separate starters. My boyfriend could not eat the starter as it contained nuts and there was no note to say there were nuts in the starter. The order was slightly wrong as we had ordered sauteed and mashed potatoes and only got mashed. The BBQ chicken and lamb were both absolutely delicious. On complaining to the acting manager we were presented with a free bottle of wine.
It was a shame that the service let down a good meal and what was meant to be a special night! I will go back to the bar but probably not the restaurant for a special occasion.
