Ate here when staying at the hotel. The quality of the food was moderate, however after a few nights I was already getting very tired of it. The view is definitely the high point of the restaurant.

Not too bad, limited menu, but over all if you don't want to go into Town, then this is OK. Drinks at fair price, and staff are friendly, and helpful. Only thing I couldn't see was how you got to restaurant if you were disabled. The hotel lifts go to 6th Fl. and then its a flight of stairs to... More

We have only had breakfast here. We had an early start so decided to have breakfast here. We arrived 15 mins after the restaurant opened and the food was already dry, cold and unpalatable. The fried eggs were rubbery and the bacon cold and inedible. They will cook breakfast to order if requested & I would advise asking for this... More

Where do we start... We booked 2 weeks in advance for that very special day that comes only once a year. Upon booking, we were asked if we would like to be seated at a window. On arrival, we were told to pick any seat that we felt like and all the window seats were taken. Disappointed, we took our... More

Went here for new years eve. Last place we could get. And could see why. For a special occasion they couldve put a bit more thought in a buffet. Very dull, and cheaply made food. Very little choice. Looks like they even had leftover prawns from the christmas lunches earlier that week.. Desserts were those frozen cakes just cut up... More
