PRB is one of those restaurants that you hear about often and that is full to the brim even on a weekday. Our first ever Yelp Elite Event was held here and we remember having delicious canapes served with sake, so back again we came.
Both food and service started off well.
Pork belly schnitzel, celeriac-apple remoulade and cress ($33.50) – on first bite the pork belly was very tasty, past that and onto the second slice things started becoming a bit too much with the fat from the pork itself and the fried crumb layer.
There was so much promise in the dessert menu, but things went downhill from here. The wait just to order our dessert was terrible, when we had finally waved down a waiter to order he put forward service that was in fact quite frankly, rude. There was then another long wait before our plates came.
I’m a little on the fence as to whether I will return, granted though that they change their menu often – so maybe in the distant future we will try again?
Sorry to those that have been looking out for the food ratings, we felt that the system we have in place now is quite flawed so we’re trying to come up with a new way to do this. Any suggestions on what aspects of the dining experience you’d like to see at a quick glance would be appreciated!
