Stayed at the hotel so it made sense to try the restaurant- the buffet breakfast was delicious. There was an excellent selection of different foods to satisfy everyone- not a bad price at all either. The Bircher muesli is to die for! Went to dinner our last night and every single bite was delightful... this restaurant was definitely a highlight... More

They really go the extra mile here with the breakfast. Quality food that stands tall against your standard eggs, bacon and sausages. Gourmet offerings with plenty of vegetarian options. Legends

We decided to dine at the Playford while staying in house. It was excellent well worth its good rating. The food was fabulous, modern without being pretentious. The wait staff were very friendly, attentive & knew the menu well. Finished with Strawberries & cream desert & an excellent coffee.

We stayed in the Playford Hotel and hence naturally dined in this Restaurant. The environment is elegantly furnished, staff well trained and selection of food / drinks adequate. My favourite dish there is King Fish Sashimi. This appetiser is actually a fusion dish. On top of the well presented fish, the Chef added salmon roe, horseradish slice and wasabi, giving... More

This is supposed to be an award winning restaurant but it fails to impress Noise from the bar(it sits above the bar in the same room) spoils the dining experience. The room is dingy Service is good and the menu varied but not exceptional Waited almost one hour for the main course to arrive and no apology or interim drinks... More
