We decided to have entree and dessert as we weren't super hungry. A wise decision as the entrees were a generous size and absolutely delicious. I had the scallops mornay and my friend had the seafood linguine. We finished the meal with the Petit Four and a latte. It was all perfect and the service outstanding. So nice to have... More

We enjoyed our dinner, from the scallops to the crayfish. The portions were generous and the quality good. It's isn't what I would classify as fine dining but certainly worth visiting particularly as there was a 25% discount for hotel guests Became obsessed with the Violet Revolver cocktail- a must try

Arrived late from the airport and looking for a nice and quiet dinner venue. The staff were really friendly and made up a table for us on short notice and looked after us really well. The food was great and well presented. Our waiter (David) did a great job for us.

We were staying at the Sofitel for a special occasion and decided to treat friends to Prive, the premier restaurant at the hotel. The table we had was huge; too big and hard to have a conversation without shouting. There were also some children in the restaurant who were squealing and I don't do children very well. The food was... More

We had a mix up with our numbers, so were waiting over an hour before our entree came out. Wait staff were very apologetic, however it put our guests off. Would've suited us better to be able to order a la carte instead of a set menu (our group was originally 11 and dropped to 7 by the night of... More

This was 2 years ago, when we celebrated my wife's birthday at the restaurant and were stunned by the quality and presentation of their food. Hence we decided to go back there once more for a farewell celebration of my daughter and were deeply disappointed what... More
