We went to the crystal court on Valentine's Day. The food is ok. Not much variety for a buffet. The desert buffet though is PERFECT! Many options and flavors. It's funny because the waiters like to sing, just like in the movie blended. The room is AMAZING. Definitely worth a visit.

The Breakfast Buffet has diminished in choice over the past year or two with less to choose from - the Peking Duck for example has gone and there are fewer cheeses to select from. There is however still a very good range of various foods available.

This was one of the highlights of our stay here! The variety of food indeed caters for every taste imaginable... from crepes, to sweets to a wide spread of cold meats(none processed) and all components of English breakfast and MORE. One Buffet you shouldn't miss! Great service and view, especially in the veranda! We will be back! Thanks CRYSTAL COURT!

A very good selection of savoury (including some sashimi) and sweet food. You can choose your flavour of TWG tea served with bone china tea wares. There is piano accompaniment too. A very pleasant setting.

Make sure you go down for breakfast early, so you can have a nice table on the outside deck. Don't rush you breakfast, take time to enjoy the big variety there is to offer.

Its decoration is impressive. It was the place we had our breakfasts. There are so many other restaurants, so we did not try for dinner or lunch. The variety and the quality of the food and drinks during the breakfast was perfect. Service is little bit slow, but no hurry in Africa :)) Listening the live piano during the breakfast... More

I'm so glad that we decided, that instead of weekends, we rather do the mid week break to the Palace. What a brilliant idea! Not that busy, and that is very nice going down to breakfast, not needing to stand in a line waiting to get a table. Today, we were helped straight away! Fantastic! The breakfast has many many...
