After we asked after our starter the waiter returned from... More

As a regular visitor to this sports bar, I am excited every time when I see Ririn coming to serve me and my friends. With quick service and a beautiful smile, she is mastering her job, a real star of the restaurant! There is nothing more that guests can expect from the staff. Well done Ririn! This is a message...

Relaxing sportsbar with nice seating outside also. Menu as you expect in a sportsbar, good choices of food and drinks. Excellent wines and staff very friendly and prompt.

We went to this bar during the HSBC Golf tournament. Now I appreciate that they are not used to regularly dealing with large numbers of guests, but surely you know in advance at a 5 star hotel linked to a prestigious golf course, how many extra staff you will need for an event? We were in a small group of... More

Have been here a couple of time and what brings us back is the kind staff and particularly Mr. Bipin, who goes out of his way to make the meal enjoyable. Efficient, pleasant and extremely attentive. A quiet outside area with good food.
