An 80th Birthday party we wont forget...

Wow! What a night to remember!!! But definitely not what you're all thinking.  A group of us were celebrating a friend's Mum's 80th Birthday this evening were a vast majority of the group had travelled from Melbourne just for this occasion.  Having read the advertising "blurb" of the Snooty Fox Restaurant, located in North Adelaide (see below), it was thought that this would be an ideal place to celebrate in


The Snooty Fox Restaurant is a charming venue for your breakfast, lunch or dinner. Whether it be a romantic occasion, for business or pleasure. Sit "under the vines" and enjoy the decadent surrounds of this colonial-inspired retreat. A memorable experience awaits. You will appreciate the value, style and service when dining in theSnooty Fox.
I must say it certainly was memorable… 


After having pre-dinner drinks at the bar, we where pointed in the direction of our table for the evening, and it was quite picturesque sitting "under the vines".  After perusing the menu with little help from the inattentive "waiter", our orders were eventually taken.  Our waiter proceeded to what looked like re-writting everything out again on another piece of paper… who knows???  What seemed like a long time, he eventually proceeded to the kitchen…


After a while, food started appearing, with mine serving of Salt n' Pepper squid being amongst the first to arrive, along with other pasta dishes - all stone cold!!!  I must admit I was far too hungry and most likely low in blood-sugar levels too care - I needed food!!!  One of our diners waited patiently and when asked about his "fish of the day" he was told that he'd have to wait as his order got mixed up!!!  The waiter was told to cancel that order and then magically with a few moments his "tepid" fish dinner arrived…


We informed the other waiting staff about the lack of service, and state of the food presented and but the night was yet over…


We had brought along an exquisite layered cake for the birthday girl, which the restaurant offered to cut up and serve… unfortunately the cake whilst getting into the kitchen area safely, didn't make it out that way and went crashing to the floor after being dropped by staff.


This was when we demanded to see the manager, who happened to be "our waiter". We were gob-smacked!!!  To their credit, after listening to us, the offered to pay for all meals which we accepted and got the heck outa there pronto!!!


The coffee and cakes down the road @ Fellini's was simply devine :)
