Title: Trevinos, ChCh

a mix of Spanish, Italian and north African style food, with an odd splash of French and Asian.

good service without long waits, as is the style for a quick churn pub/restaurant eatery.
The place is dived by a central bar with eating to the right and drinking and big screen tv's to
the left.
Although the quality of the food is acceptable, the menu description and the price, suggests something
more than what is delivered.
From five of us one dish was sent back as it was too salty, this was done without fuss and quickly
replaced with no drama from the kitchen. Portions were not small, and any dishes with chips were
overflowing with them.
The dishes you might expect to be delivered in a dish specific manner, the the tagine and paella were still
presented in the standard plate and bowl of the restaurant crockery. The tagine was the dish returned and
even if it hadn't have been over seasoned it would have disappointing as it was less tagine and more lamb
curry. Another quirk was the garnishing, all dishes were garnished exactly the same, a red syrup in a ring
around the plate and some green cress on top, for everything.
On the up side they were well able to cope with GF requirements by adapting a dish or as seemed to be, they were
just GF anyway.

It was a nice meal, cooked well and served well, but in the end it's still a pub eatery and as such the price seems a bit on the heavy side.
