This would be our third or fourth visit over the years. The Burlington was "something a little fancy" but with the increase in bistro style food recently it has slipped to "ok". Overall it was still pretty good but a few stuff ups detracted from the experience and made us question the price.
Entree (scallops) was good.
Half the steak was cooked medium but the other half was rare (different to what usually happens where the steak is less well cooked in the middle...this was "left half" cooked, "right half" not quite there). We risked having our food dropped or spat on and asked the second half to be cooked a bit longer and it came back out cooked well and presented "as new" but for some reason the new potato gratin was cold... quite unusual.... at least it was still soft.
Pork shoulder was very soft but they unforuntately used similar spices to McDonalds so that's what it tasted like.
The pavalova was recommended (always wonder if it's a real recommendation or if they're trying to clear stock). It failed. You could make that at home. Also we're not sure what it means when pavalova is chewy...is it old or is it some special way of making pav. Nothing like their Eaton Mess which is worth a recommendation.
Luckily the fondant was worth it.
