Yes it does sound a little crazy doesn’t it. It was a first for us too. We went for a meal (admittedly with a large group of 13) but it too 1 hour from the moment we sat down to receive some bread. A further hour to receive our starters. 30 mins later (now 10:30pm) we decided that we couldn’t wait any longer for our food. What had come out wasn’t all there, was wrong and tasted as bland as any tapas I have ever tried. At this point things took a strange turn. We tried to cancel the remaining food as it was late and eating into our evening. People just weren’t hungry any more. At this point we were told the food was coming. We said that if it did we wouldn’t be paying. At this point the manager became very angry, stating that we had to pay for anything that came out even if we didn’t eat it. Not a concept we could grasp. We asked for the bill and when it came we deleted the items that never arrived using a pen and gathered the rest of the bill between the group. I was the first to get up and try to leave. My friend had given the bill to the waiter for what we had eaten. As I went to leave the manager wouldn’t let me and locked the doors of the restaurant (effectively kidnapping us) he was shouting at his staff in German (which I’m afraid none of us could understand) certainly the most bizarre restaurant experience I’ve had anywhere in the world. Eventually after us explaining best we could that we only paid for what we ate he let us go. To be honest I don’t think we’ll be back to Los flamencos any time soon!
