The main dining area within the Grand Chancellor is currently being upgraded, so Frescos restaurant has been relocated to one of the conference rooms, so the surroundings aren't all that appealing. Luckily the food was top class, which made up for the decor. My lamb dish was well presented, tender and delicious, and my partner thoroughly enjoyed his chicken tagine.... More

We've eaten at Frescos before, and the food is reliably good. But it's the staff that are the stand-out stars here. Combined, floor staff and kitchen staff make for a lovely evening where you leave with a smile on your face.

Great food, get the two for one voucher for the money all the coffee and fruit juice you can drink.The food is fresh and cooked well; from cereals, fruit, to a full cooked meal that includes poached eggs, hash browns bacon and more Everything a hangover needs and more. Staff are great, the room has city views. Good value

At least the dinner meal was good, better than the stay. Buffet breakfast was nothing special. I had eaten here once for both the breakfast and dinner. I would definitely do the dinner again. I'd say if you are paying for breakfast then I would look elsewhere. The meals were both on my last day/night stay. I didn't do breakfast... More

The service at this restaurant was absolutely brilliant. Some of the best staff we've seen definitely 5 stars there. Very helpful and polite. The food was tasty but to me it's priced too high for what you get. The duck crepe was very nice, there was a little sharp bone in it however so watch out for bones if you... More

Had dinner here and also breakfast. I would recommend the gnocchi, light soft and delicious. Breakfast smorgasbord has a good range of hot and cold dishes.

Got put up at the Hotel Gran Chancellor for work and figured might'as well try this 'Frescos' restaurant. I was desperate and it was getting late. What I didn't expect was such a delicious meal! I ordered the wagyu steak and it was cooked almost to perfection. A little salty but great flavours complimented by BIG onion rings and fat... More

Stayed for conference. Morning tea on the first day day, warm scones with jam and cream - excellent, Fresh fruit platter - yum, on tap coffee and an array of teas. Within the room a looney dispenser and one with dried fruit - again yum and a nice indulgence. Lunch was in frescos, a buffet with excellent choice. Salads, fresh... More

Booked into the Grand Chancellor and decided to wonder down to the hotel restaurant after long day. No booking and was met with great service. Pre dinner drinks and offer of free corn bread which was great. Great menu selection and prompt service. Main with sides were delivered in 20 minutes. This is a great place to kick back and... More

Took my elderly mother to High Tea at Frescos and was delighted with the service received. Was shown to a lovely table with a view, given menu information and an anticipated wait time for delivery of the high tea and we were regularly checked on. When they realised it was Mum's birthday an extra treat was delivered to the table... More
