The restaurant is elegant and relaxing, with a romantic atmosphere. The staff is professional, prepared and very polite. The menu offers few courses of fish, meat and vegetarian, giving the opportunity to the costumers to choose, plus there's a tasting. The food is perfectly cooked,...More

We enjoyed eating here during our stay. Their 2 or 3 course Sunday lunch is excellent. We also stayed over Christmas and the Christmas lunch was amazing.

It's been perhaps just over a year since we dined at the County Restaurant within the ABode hotel for an evening meal. You of course wonder if the standards have risen or fallen since your last visit. But I'm pleased to report a very enjoyable...More

Paying homage to the hotel's extensive history, the restaurant takes its name from the original name established for the hotel in 1892. Modern European cuisine using the best regional produce is complemented by an exceptional wine list from classic European vineyards and New World estates. For special occasions and celebrations, our private dining rooms are the perfect venue, boasting its own 'chef's table' where up to 12 guests can dine in privacy with a view behind the scenes of the kitchen.
