We chose the Playford Restaurant’s Festival of Food offer for a birthday dinner and we were very, very pleased we did. Food, service and ambience was excellent as usual.

Our dining group loves the Festival of Food offers as it gives us a chance to try a taster plate of 3 entrees, a choice of main and an after dinner petit fours. Those of us with a sweet tooth will proceed to a full dessert...if we can squeeze it in.

Usually, to reserve room for dessert, we’d choose lighter options like fish. But this time, the pork scotch fillet beckoned. Oh wow! It was so succulent and melt in the mouth tender that we cleaned our plates.

On the occasion of a birthday, we chose this beautiful luxury restaurant. The decoration is grandiose and showy, but finally warm. We chose the tasting menu with 7 courses, everything was very good (perfectly cooked meat and very tasty, fresh fish) and we had a little trouble to go to the end, not so easy to finish all of i !. The staff is professional, but a little stuffy to our taste. Obviously, it's expensive, but it's so good.

We went by off chance looking for something light to eat after a great lunch in the hills.
From the bar menu we ordered the sea food trilogy ... tuna, lobster and salmon. All very nice and just enough with some bread to go with.
Lovely

If you have an Accor membership, head for here. Great value, good service, very pleasant but simple breakfast and enjoyable surrounds that made for a great visit
