One of the problems I face when I stay away from home is where do I go to dinner. I am not a fan of hotel restaurants, generally I find they are overpriced and the quality can be poor.
I was recently in a hotel on the A45 Cromwell Road and was not impressed with the menu, so decided to venture out and find somewhere to eat.
Well I wish I hadn’t…
I found Bellavista, what looked like a nice Italian restaurant, an interesting menu and was quite full (which I usually find is a good sign of quality) and went in.
Well I left very disappointed. It was an overpriced rubbish food experience.
I had a starter of calamari, which I initially thought was okay, but overall was disappointed as it was quite rubbery, it certainly wasn’t cooked from fresh, more likely deep fried from frozen.
My main course, spaghetti with clams was absolutely terrible. The sauce was obviously from a jar!
I couldn’t believe how bad the food was…
The couple on the table next to me ordered fish and chips, it looked worse than mine!
I had obviously entered a London tourist restaurant that caters for tourists.
I need to find some good places before I get to London in the future…
