Decor was old & tired, waitress has no clue, online menu states bottle of wine with the platter menu in the restaurant says 2 glasses of wine told waitress & she didn’t care, seafood was from the freezer not fresh overall never again not worth the money or your time
The staff were lovely, and very attentive. The lady who served us was wonderful. The food was nice, but we have been customers of Cardens for many years and the change in management is very noticeable in the quality/amount. For example - The oysters kilpatrick now have the cheaper processed cubed bacon instead of proper bacon, and the BBQ shellfish used to be a larger serving of quite a few bugs and prawns. This time it was 2 prawns and three bugs. There was also an absence of finger bowls and a bowl to place the shells into.
Great food and location, although a little on the quiet side - probably due to the time of day we went. Recommend to others. Staff very friendly too.
