It was my job to book a table for the Valentines dinner for two of us!
So, I remember this article on Pune Times: Casero running a Mediterranean Fest, serving unlimited grilled food, beer and fresh fruit cocktails! A newish name, our all time love for Mediterranean food and the availability of a table, landed us at Casero. I wondered, what does the Spanish name really mean, when my husband whispered- ” Casero means Home-Made.” he picked it up from the Menu.
A list of grills written on a blackboard was on offer. Baby lamb racks, fish cakes, charmoula prawns, bacon wrapped seabass, chicken wings, filled zucchini, stuffed tomatoes, potato wedges, fruit skewers and some more. We opted for the special Mediterranean spread and left the A la Carte for our next visit.
The food was decent, not excellent though! But, I guess any packaged unlimited deal cuts down a little on the quality.
Slowly, the crowd picked up and in no time the restaurant was full and ran out of tables. And the staff looked ruffled!
With time, the orders became delayed and not as fresh as served at the start! We waited for the dessert and were given a 10% discount instead, as they couldn’t manage to serve any!
The floor manager asked for an apology and requested to give them another chance, some other day!
“We were not expecting such a huge rush tonight. We are sorry. Please give us another chance.”- he sighed!
We will surely come back to you, for you being so honest and also dig in to your A la Carte menu.
