I ate here twice during a three night stay at the hotel. I was impressed by the quality of both the food and service. The menu is full of exciting dishes with a Mediterranean touch. It's just a shame that the floor of the restaurant isn't higher because when you sit down the lake is no longer at eye level.... More

We had a dinner at the restaurant. Nice cuisine (mediterranean) with a good selection of wine. Very quiet on evenings.

Nice Sunday lunch rather than the advertised brunch. The quality of the good is good albeit the choice a bit limited, except for desserts!

My wife and I ate here during our stay at the Palace. We were very pleased with the food, the decor, and the service. The wine steward knew his stuff and we enjoyed the bottle he suggested. My wife had stuffed zucchini flowers and a Greek salad with calamari. I served myself from the large antipasti buffet and then had... More

It took awhile until the waiter showed up, and champaign and other drinks were served. The food is excellent but service needs to improve alot In a five star... More

What's not to like? The decor, the atmosphere and the service are superb! Not to mention the savoury menus that tempt your taste buds. It's very fine dining. Last time we were invited by our banker for lunch, which was excellent. I might add. This time we had dinner en tête à tête and decided that we were hooked. We... More

My wife and I had dinner during the week of Greek flavors by chef Yannis Baxevanis. We had the cold buffet for starters. The starters were good but nothing special. For the main dish I had a stuffed chicken which was delicious. My wife took lamb and liked it. For the dessert we took the 'galaktoboureko' and this was a... More

very smart setting and super terrace in summer. Service is very attentive without being overbearing, everything you can expect from a palace hotel. the food is likewise excellent and the desert buffet well worth a visit, unless you are trying to diet. beware: the hotel parking is not easy to find and not very big so you may have to...
