We had dinner in Sweet Melindas last December (review here). We enjoyed it and resolved to return and, as my daughter Ali had never been there, we went with her this weekend. I started with octopus and squid salad and Ali had smoked duck and melon salad. But my wife Anne’s starter of pate looked rather grey and unappetising – it tasted ok but not fantastic.
We all had fish for main courses – Ali and I had hake and Anne had sea bass. Sweet Melindas specialises in fish and they do it well.
So – the food was generally good but the service was a bit lacking. Our wine took a while to arrive and we had to remind the waiter when our starters arrived. And they made a total mess of the bill – 3 separate mistakes and an overcharge of about £40. Rectified and the costs of coffees knocked off but it shouldn’t have happened.
As before, 2 courses each plus a bottle of wine (Muscadet sur lie) came to just over £30 each.
