We tried the "social roast" special, a choice of lamb, beef or chicken in any combination at the waiter's recommendation. My wife ordered lamb and beef and I chose chicken and beef. The food arrived within two minutes of ordering, so clearly it's precooked and sitting around under warming lights. Except that the beef was lukewarm, and the meats were coated in a buttery, oily spread that ruined the taste of what might have been good cuts. My wife sent hers back and requested a freshly cooked plate without the glaze or whatever they rub on the meat. The side dishes, particularly a carrot mash and a cauliflower gratin, were so buttery and salty as to be inedible. Even after the little we ate, we woke up the next day with mouths coated with icky glop and it took 24 hours to lose the bad taste. It's all a shame, because the setting overlooking the marina is attractive and reportedly some of the fish and other dishes are better.
