The Usual Disclaimer:
This disclaimer applies to all posts, if changes occur then those changes will be discussed in the post itself.
- sus-ten-ance (and any guests, if applicable) visited this restaurant / cafe with the aim of eating food and reviewing said food.
- Any commentary on service or the overall quality of the experience are strictly what I encountered at the venue.
- All comments on the quality of the food remain completely my own, irrespective of the event / restaurant / function and certainly irrespective of the treatment I received. There will be absolutely no sugar-coating, unless I feel that there is a reasonable exception which deserves mentioning (e.g. the restaurant just opened and were experiencing teething issues). Ultimately, I blog for my readers, not for the industry. Any reasonable establishment should be able to take constructive criticism, head on.
- Some posts may be on restaurant openings / launches. As such, these should not be treated in the same vein as a review of a regular restaurant visit. The logistics and service, often even the food, differs. Thus think of them as more a recount, rather than a review.
Let’s Talk About Change Baby:
I entered the venue, ate some food, interacted with staff and then published my comments on my blog. What I write about is my experience and I am completely honest in my opinions.
One major issue is change, the meal you so enjoyed reading about has a number of items that can make your experience different to mine.
Service for example can change with staff leaving, or just having a bad day.
Food change is subject to who was doing the preparation, so perhaps the chef that day was not the person who made my original food for the review.
Atmosphere can change even while in attendance at the venue as large, noisy groups can make your experience a very different one.
Suppliers those fab avocados you enjoyed last time have run out. So now you’re eating the weirdly tasting ones because of, you guessed it, “change”.
