Beautiful restaurant with impeccable service with friendly warm waiters. Food was exceptional, especially all of the little extras they provide to tease the pallet.

We arrived just a few minutes early for our 7pm dinner reservation. We were told our table had already been prepared, but would we care for a pre-dinner cocktail at Zanzibar, their downstairs lounge? We are a family of five, two boys 22 & 18,...More

Excellent hotel from the service to the friendly staff. The restaurant was outstanding. From the first day the staff knew who we were and greeted us as if we were family. I would stay here again and again.

Very nice meal, good selection of wines and excellent service. Really enjoyed the evening. Maybe the chef's special beef dish would have benefitted from more actual beef, at that price, but flavour combination was good. Not cheap, but overall quality was worth it.

Is there a formal dress code for the restaurant? Are jeans and casual shirt acceptable? Kind regards, Jeff.

Business casual seemed to be the norm. No specific dress code though. Jeans and causal shirts were worn by several diners. Enjoy!
