Avril in Bala

I just tried out a new local rest. on the Mail Line with three others. It was a Saturday night so they should have been at the top of their game. The menu is French with some Italian thrown in for good measure. I had one of the worst meals I have ever had ,and its too bad because I wanted to like the place. The house salad was just O.K, when one of my dinning companions asked for more dressing because it was underdressed for her taste,the snippy hostess had the nerve to tell her it was done the " French way ". Does she think we just crawled out from under a rock?I found this to be so rude considering she probably has eaten more terrific French meals than anyone Ive known. I ordered rack of lamb,the most expensive dish on the menu. When it came to the table it reeked with a fowl odor. I couldnt believe my nose, I have never had such old piece of meat served to me before . My dinner companions noticed it too and we sent it back,yuck!!! O.K. things were not working out to say the least. We also ordered pasta that was just O.K ,they had forgotten to salt it ,it had no flavor . We were comped desert , it was very average ,considering they bake in house. I will say that the chef did the right thing and came out before we left and gave his apology and comped us a meal in the future. Not sure if Ill go back even with the comp... If I were you I would wait on this place and see if they get their act together. In a nut shell the service was poor and the food was bad,what else can I say?
