I am spending 3 nights in the Ermland of Masuren in Poland. Our hotel is an old Teutonic knights fortified castle Zamek Ryn. In the restaurant we had a Buffet dinner.
Always a problem when you arrive late in the evening.
Food sits a long time in the warming containers, but getting cold and stale anyway.
Some dishes were nearly empty and not filled fresh again.
What stands best for long times are soups and crude salads. What stands worse are fish dishes.
