I have two things that really bug me in restaurants
1) is when you have hardly finishing chewing your first course and "voila" they bring in the next course. I like to relax between courses and have a leisurely, social evening. I know the restaurant may need the table (and if so we wouldn´t spend so much time there) but when there is plenty of space, and they are obviously not so busy, why do they try to rush you so.
2) I have had soooo many contretemps with waiters I have lost count re my next pet hate. I am a slow eater and I really "lose it" if the waiter clears anybody elses plate before I have finished eating. Grrr... I´m getting annoyed just thinking about it.
Going back to point 1)........We like such a long break between courses, believe it or not, we have just had our Christmas pudding tonight and it was scrumptious (bang goes the diet!!!)
