It wasn't until we had ordered drinks and were checking out the menu that we noticed it was Steak Tuesday, which included 25 per cent off the usual price, including a glass of red wine.
Our starters were excellent, with the chicken liver pate, salad of bacon and black pudding and warm peppered fillet of mackerel all Nike Air Max Tavas Sale hitting the spot.
The service during the meal itself was well paced and the waiting staff were warm and attentive, which only added to the frustration of those crucial first impressions.
Kevin rounded off his meal with chocolate cake and beetroot, the least likely coupling since Shane Warne took up with Elizabeth Hurley, but he knocked it for six off his plate to prove it is a marriage made in dessert heaven.
The menu at Elliot's is pretty extensive and sticks to the tried and tested, burgers, steaks and pasta mostly, although it's not cheap if you're not going with the specials.
Should it really have taken 25 minutes for a bowl of bread to be delivered to our table, however busy the staff may have been in the bustling terrace?
Kevin and I went for diet Cokes and were charged an eye popping 2.10 for 200ml mixer bottles that wouldn't slake the thirst of the Anthill Mob after a day spent racing with Penelope Pitstop.

Understandably, that comes at a premium price, especially at peak times, but the attention to detail at Elliot's was scatty and inconsistent and suggests the owners need to White Nike Air Max 2015 Mens
The place was busy for a Tuesday night, always a good sign, but did we really have to approach staff to hang up our coats after being seated in the restaurant?
A fillet steak will set you back 22.95 plus 2.50 for a sauce, with even a standard burger at 10.95 and starters ranging from a fiver to 7.

They threw in so many ice cubes I half expected to fish Leonardo DiCaprio out from the bottom of the glass and still the drink didn't reach the top.
Scott's, The Treehouse, The Dome, The Longhouse and Lido have won a reputation and a string of awards as fashionable Ayrshire eateries and chic hangouts that would not be out of place in our major city centres.

Like Elvis up the road all those years ago it was soon time to leave the building. Not Way Down, but not Stuck on You either.
When it was time for the next round approximately three minutes later we ordered pints of the stuff at 2.80 and although that's still overpriced it at least represented slightly better value.

After dinner, Kevin and Lil, Kilwinning's answer to Posh and Becks, nipped out for a smoke to the beautifully furnished open air terrace, an extension of an impressive bar area that looks as if it jumps on weekends like the Jungle Room.
