How not to serve customers

Posted by Daniel Hölbling on July 13, 2008

I decided some time ago that I don't want to blog about non technical stuff any more.
But it's Sunday and I hope you'll excuse this one.

What happened? The-best-girlfriend-someone-can-imagine™ just returned from a 2 week study trip to Slovenia while I've been holding up here in Klagenfurt. Upon returning I imagined it would be cool to celebrate her return with romantic dinner at a Mexican restaurant here in Klagenfurt.

The restaurant I'm referring to is the Salud that usually serves truly great Mexican food. But while their food truly justifies the somewhat high price, their service is just ridiculous!

I've never seen service like this.
In short it's been a really really unpleasant experience, but what really stood out was that the waitress tried to take away my plate while I was still chewing my last bite!
And then she kept standing there for at last 5 seconds watching my girlfriend chew on her last bite too!

There is nothing I hate more than being interrupted while eating at a restaurant, except for being watched while eating.

So, just to compensate for the useless post, here a list of great places to eat (where I actually liked the service) in Klagenfurt:

  • Chinesischer Garten
    • Very good Chinese food, fast and very polite service. Very reasonable prices (with all you can eat etc)
  • Da Pietro
    • Not the cheapest Italian restaurant you'll find, but the food tastes great. And the waiters there are absolutely the best you'll find in Klagenfurt.
  • Longhorn Saloon: Steakhouse
    • I don't like steak, but most of my friends have agreed that this has to be one of the best places to eat steak in the center of Klagenfurt.
