Good food. More for an after work get together. My teens didn’t enjoy the surroundings. Needs to be a little more trendy. Very average.

I've been here a few times and have never been disappointed. In fact, it's been a phenomenal experience almost every time. Friendly people, nice location, great ambiance and the food is fantastic. If you choose to dine here, you should expect great service. Enjoy

Cavallo Nero used to be one of my favourite restaurants; offering Mediterranean fare. There have been some changes since new ownership. Menu items removed. Welcome bread and garlic dip removed that most customers dining here enjoyed immensely. Quality of the food has remained good.

Never stayed there but from the info on the web both are great hotels but I think the Palace is superior. It then comes down to the cost.
