The first time in my life a waiter tried to convince me that the white wine is a Cabernet and did this with attitude. When asked what the side salad was the reply was a normal side salad.

Not sure if she is still dancing or has set light to her hair in the meantime. Back to the restaurant though. I particularly like the setting next... More
