It seems to be an American style diner in the same building as the hotel. I had a few coffees out the front on their terrace area, didn't try the food but the place is handy enough if you staying next door.

We went to Broken Dreams to celebrate wife’s birthday. I asked to be seated at one of the four-place tables by the windows and was told we could not be seated there, as we were only two of us. When we were seated I ordered a drink and got one or the worst martinis I have ever experienced. It seemed... More

We had to wait for the starters for about 30 min and the main course more than an hour, in total about 1,5 h!! They where out of wine, vegetables etc but didn't inform. They blamed the chef, they blamed us as guests because we had starters first. When we threatened to not pay, they treated us the desserts, but... More

The restaurant is not what you expect it to be, it's gone worse over the years and the overall quality which was really good a couple of years ago is unfortunately poor nowadays. There are better options nearby.

We have eaten here several times, and think the food is quite good. However, on our most recent visit we decided to order something different than our usual choice......big mistake! My husband ordered surf and turf and I ordered mussels. When they arrived it looked promising. The surf and turf meat was full of fat and the pepper sauce was... More

The medium steak almost rare, when I complaint they questioned me but didn't even look at it. I got a new one from the kitchen, that's what I thought anyway but it was not. They served me the same steak! Who would ever think of that? Desert was some kind of cake covered with all sort of accessories you can... More

The restaurant mainly caters for customers not stating at the hotel, so they have to capture a market. The restaurant is profiled as American/Mexican and has US atmosphere and menu. They claim to have 300 different bottled beers, probably in no particular order in the fridges as staff have to search for the more unusual orders. Others reviewers (of the... More

Had very low expectations after reading the reviews here. It was OK. My daughter loved her chicken breast and fries from the children's meny. She wouldn't let me score less than average. I had the baby back ribs which were quite dry.The fries was very good. Good selection of beers. Service was good but restaurant not so full at the... More

Everything seems to be warmed up, quality of frozen food portions from supermarket. Food was not edible. I understand it is restaurant with concept of American traditional food. But what is served in restaurant - is not. Service - completly not interested in guests.
