The Buffet selection, presentation and taste of the various items is of a very high standard. Perhaps the best lunch buffet in Port of Spain.

“Wedding Venue”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

We recently attended a wedding here. The entrance to the building belies the upscale ambiance of the restaurant. It was extremely comfortable for the approx. 120 guests including a small dance floor. The service was great as was the selection and quality of food served.

“overall experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2013

The ambience was great with comfortable seating and the service was good. Their lunch menu is an extensive buffet. A soup was offered as a starter after which there was a wide display of salads. The starches, vegetables and meats were very well prepared and very tasty. I especially enjoyed my roasted beef at the carvery. After which I had a wide choice of beautiful and tasty desserts. My overall experience was a good one and I think great value for money. I will definitely visit again.
