Usually when one is trapped in eating in one's accomodation, disappointment can occur. Not so with this restaurant; one night of elegant dining; and one of completely gourmet bar food. It will never disappoint!

Would rather pay $10 each for the convenience of eating breakfast at the hotel as the surrounding area is very peaceful. Free breakfast was HORRIBLE! Powdered eggs, cold oatmeal, cold stale tortillas, very stale cheap nasty muffins. Very sad. The Apple was good. LOL. People will remember the horrible food that was free more than the hotel trying to spend... More

Stayed here for a birthday "get away" weekend. Good location for our needs. Room was quite large and therefore comfortable while we were actually in the room. The biggest drawback was that for the size of the room, there was only one comfortable chair. One of us had to sit on a wooden straight back chair or on the bed.... More

Oddly, we were the only ones in the restaurant from 6:30-7:30, but we had a very enjoyable meal. Service was very good too.

I had salmon and it was lovely with little shrimps in the sauce. Others had lamb and we were all really delighted with our food, atmosphere and drinks. I would definitely recommend this to ANYONE. Nice personable service.
