The Meikles hotel offers exclusive type of sercvices unique to the hotel. It is the one and only Meikles Hotel in the world that has five star type of service. The place is clean and has tight security for all the guests.

Very good service. Excellent but pricey selection of wines. Very good steaks with surprisingly 'traditional' Bearnaise sauce. Were able to accommodate and modify a few of the side dishes with no fuss.

La Fontaine is situated in the Meikles Hotel and has a great menu and even greater, attentive and professional staff. The atmosphere is elegant, the service is great and the variety will suit most tastes. Do not visit this restaurant if you are on a diet... and come hungry.
