Mirna's Cafe, Blue Bell PA
Has anyone been here recently? Going for dinner tomorrow night with friends. Just want to know what to/ what not to expect. Cuisine? Recommendations?
I would not recommend this restaurant. We went tonight for the first time and were disappointed. The restaurant was empty, so noise was not a problem. We got 2 appetizers - the grilled calamari and the sampler plate with hummus, baba ghanouj etc. The calamari was smothered in sauce but passable; the sampler plate was excellent. The entrees themselves however, were horrible. My husband got a seafood sampler with shrimp and scallops that were cooked minutes too long. Everything was drenched in salt. I got the chilean sea bass which was also way overcooked and smothered (unnecessarily) in sauce. I always thought it not possible to ruin sea bass because it is such a delicious fish -- I was wrong. Service was fair too poor - minor touches were missing, such as providing silverware for the third person at our table, replacing missing silverware after appetizers, etc. We will not return to this restaurant and as previously stated, I would not recommend it.
