The Continental is always very consistant in offering a couple hours of real pleasure and gastronomy, first class service (but not stuffed up) and old french charm. We love going back year after year.

Had maybe the best dinner of our lives here. Celebrating out honeymoon and we were treated like royalty. Never lifted a finger! The food is absolutely amazing. They treated us to a complimentary champagne toast. Don't miss the creme brûlée. You won't be disappointed.
