We luckily walked in at lunch and got a table overlooking the water. Expensive, but absolutely a wonderful experience all around for lunch. Food, view and service as good as it gets.

Although not so impressed with our room in the Hotel, I was surprised by the quality offered by Bistro Le Sam. Although it's expensive, I would say it's well worth it for the quality you receive in both service and food. Make sure you book...More
