I didn't complain to anyone about this btw
Yes, I know, I should've, but I was on holiday!
So me & the BF took the holiday we'd been planning all year (despite me losing my job, everything was booked & mostly all paid for, so we decided to go thru with it), and while we were out we decided to splash out on a restaurant dinner. There was a bistro just down from our hotel, and I asked my friend who lives local about it, and she gave it glowing reviews.
The food was... OK, I guess. It took ages to arrive, despite it not being very busy (about 2 other small tables in use), and the fact that they said they couldn't remove the mushrooms from the risotto (presumably meaning it's precooked?) but OK. It was pretty bland to my tasting, but OK.
Then I ordered dessert. Big mistake. I forget what the name of the dish was, but it was listed on the menu as 'vanilla icecream, frangelico & espresso'.
Well, the waitress brings the plate out and... It's a bowl with a few scoops of vanilla icecream, a shot glass of frangelico, and a espresso shot in a espresso cup. I'm like o.O ?? The waitress took off before I could ask her how I was supposed to 'construct' my damn dessert
. My BF pointed out I did get exactly what the menu said
Anyway, so I tried pouring half of each shot over the icecream, and ... bleurghhhh. I love all the individual flavours, but this was just GROSS. I poured the rest over - and it was worse
I really hated it. I tried to force myself to eat it cauz, well, $14 dessert!!!! But I felt really ripped off. Nobody came to check on us or anything, and the whole experience was really unsatisfactory; especially considering it was expensive!!!
I wish I could have got the guts up to say something, but I just wanted to get out of there.
