    Hemingway's was my wedding venue and as such, I chose it for my husband's 50th birthday. I was very disappointed that the service was so shocking. The restaurant 'ran out' of 1 litre bottles of water within the first 30 minutes of us being there and took ages to go on a search for 500ml bottles. The waiter could not seem to take more than 2 orders at a time - so drinks took forever to get ordered and served. We arrived at 18h00 and the meal was only served past 20h30 - so the guest were hungry and impatient. We were put in a separate room - which was great - but the air-conditioning unit did not work - so it became unbearably hot within the first 30 minutes. I personally was very disappointed. It was supposed to be a memorable occasion for my husband's birthday but the service was really terrible.

    I always have a lovely experience although i feel like the waiters are not attentive or rather ignorant.

    I was served a steak that was off/rotten. Upon my concern I was provided with a substitute plate, however this steak was cooked way beyond well done.
