The worst service and the worst salt & pepper squid I have ever had was this day at the MLC Café in the Scenic Hotel on Queen Street.

A $12 lunch deal enticed us over for a work day lunch, 3 of the 4 of us mistakenly ordered the Salt and Pepper squid salad in which the salad was just rocket and parmesan. The squid was poorly coated with a weird batter that was spasmodically coated in bits like cling ons from another galaxy. On complaint nothing was offered in replacement, we refused to pay given we barely touched the offerings and so were not charged for anything but the chips.

The chips we ordered to share as they were $8 a small serve were nice, but please, about 10 to a bowl, 80 cents per chip. The most expensive I have ever had, anyone would think we were in Paris. Needless to say I will not go back.

The waitress was rude and didn’t speak fluent English, the Manager although speaking English was rude too and said they have never had a complaint over their squid before. I can’t believe that unless that says something about their general patronage that they don’t know good squid from bad. They get a 1 for the good burger our other diner had.
