We had an early flight and the restaurant was willing to open fifteen minutes early for breakfast for our Globus group of 28! Great food options--Friendly service even at 5:45am!

The buffet was great. For kids and adults. But the dinner options for the kids were a little limited.

The staff were friendly, attentive and... More

We booked dinner and breakfast as part of our stay at Novotel Lakeside where this restaurant is located. We expected so much more after reading a couple of good reviews, unfortunately after dining here we wished we hadn't. The restaurant is located on the mezzanine adjacent to the main lobby, after climbing the stairs you find yourself standing right in... More

They seems to have no idea how to talk to the customers. Absolutely no respect. Food was not worth the money.
