Wow what a horrible experience, booked at the famous Mirka at Tolarno on "yum table" website for an 8:30 dinner with our family tonight. Arrived early at 8pm just in case a table was available early. Family was excited. Was placed in the casual dining area and was not looked after by anyone until a young chap asked if we wanted drinks and apologized that no one was looking after us. We were served drinks. We waited until 8:30 and I went into the restaurant to enquire about the booking and they said another 15 to 20 mins. During that time other people arrived after us and were seated. I went back at 8:50 and was told it would another wait. By then my family had waited for a time longer than expected and my son was famished. Finally the restaurant host advised they had overbooked and it would be a long wait.
After $37 worth of drinks, we left without a meal and our worst restaurant experience in Melbourne. It is noted that although staff insisted we don't pay for drinks my wife relented and went back an hour later and paid for drinks, too proud to accept an apology for ruining a night out for our small family by "buying" us off with free drinks.
I wouldn't have minded so much if the staff had of been more helpful. Worst experience ever!!!!
Don't go to this restaurant, the staff treat you with contempt.
