We had no food, since the drinks were appalling and hygiene appeared to be a problem here. Our mixed drinks (2 of 3 in our group) had neither fresh nor correct ingredients, and when one was sent back, our waiter explained that the bartender was mad at him and had poured the drink back in the blender. There are a number of problems with this--hygiene being the most concerning, but also poor staff preparing drinks, and the incompetence of the wait staff. To make matters worse, it took a few minutes to explain to the waiter and the manager why these issues bothered us. We did not feel like trusting our meal preparation to such a poorly run establishment, and will not never go back.
