Booked a table for six and prepaid about $65 USD a head. Nice table, well set out. The waitress asked if we wanted water and white wine to start, I checked that it was included and she said yes, so 5 of us had a glass of wine. After that, we headed to the buffet. The range was very good,... More

We went for a dinner here recently for our combined birthday celebration. We find the place overrated. There's nothing special that will render us to come back again. Here are the pros and cons of the place: Pros: 1) Food is tasty 2) Plenty of space in between tables 3) Quiet environment Cons: 1) The waiter who attended to us... More

Had dinner here many years ago and I remember it as one the best meals I ever had so I was intrigued to see how it had changed with a new chef. I tried the tasting menu which offered seasonal dishes. Each course was nicely presented but for me it was a bit hit and miss. The mackerel starter was... More

As the title says. perfect choice for quiet and private place, either for personal or professional context. Very good value for the money. Excellent selection of wine. Best French restaurant in town, and I can tell.

Have been to Lafite many time in the past. It has been a bit of a roller coaster ride over the past few years due the changing head chefs and staff turnover in the restaurant. This now seems to be well behind them. The service last night was outstanding. The menu is now clear and has been uncomplicated. The food... More

The food was excellent but the room was very very cold. The views were good. The Service was excellent. Would go back when air conditioning was not as good.
