This is the designated restaurant for the hotels breakfast. The selection is quite average and I would have expected a better quality of food at this 5 star hotel. Service is also slow and it's quite difficult to get a table with a good view. I was there over a busy period, so maybe it's better during a lower season.... More

I have nothing negative for this restaurant. It exceeded my expectations. I went for a buffet dinner with my wife and two children. The food was exceptional- wide variety yet very tasty. The services were great. Kudos to the team behind the restaurant.

We ate there for 4 nights in a row. Different buffet with either barbecue or lamb on a spit every evening. Excellent friendly staff, really made us feel special.

It was on my must do list to dine at the famous crystal court. The Palace itself as well as the court was majestically grand. We had Christmas Eve dinner there and the service was impeccable. Food wise, it was a buffet meal with drinks not included, not even water. There was a variety of food set out but it... More

We stayed at Lost Palace last New Year and decided to return for longer. Probably the only reliable place to eat in the resort based on our experience. Breakfast spread offers anything and everything I could ever wish to eat, from fresh fruits, cereals, oysters, rollmops, to traditional English and beyond. High tea was a slight disappointment; Personally, I could... More

Large and inviting setting serving mostly buffet style meals. Slow service, average food which in my opinion made for a very forgettable experience.

Even breakfast here is a grand affair, what with being greeted with a glass of champagne to kick start your day. Different types of smoothies--fruit &veg juices, etc for those who don't take alcohol. From there you're ushered to your table with it a white starched tabled cloth and polished silver cutlery. The buffet is quite a spread, fresh and... More
