The Terrapin has been one of my favorite restaurants since I went there for Valentine’s Day three years ago. I’ve always enjoyed their tapas selection and meat options. However, when Julian and I went to the Bistro, we both left disappointed. We ordered the fries, a Goat Cheese and Mushroom Quesadilla, and Nachos. Now, I understand these aren’t exactly gourmet dishes, but we expected more. The nachos were okay, and the fries were as good as always (although I do find it strange they were put the plate with sauce on top so that the fries are squished), but the most disappointing thing was the quesadilla. I’ve had the duck and mango one and it’s excellent, so I thought this would be too, but it was awfully soggy (I can’t imagine why). I think perhaps the Bistro side isn’t as good as the menu, and would recommend the tapas and more expensive dinner entrees (and NEVER pasta).
