We all enjoyed the three course taster meal and little hors douvre at the start of the meal were both interesting and tasty. The roast duck was perfect and overall the meal was very good. Waiter staff were attentive and friendly.

Wasn't expecting too much for a hotel restaurant but food turned out to be quite good. Opting for the a la carte menu, we were treated to a number of refined dishes. Flavours meshed well. On top of that, we were given complementary nibbles and...More
