“Great staff, great service, and outstanding menu”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

Being a club Member, I have been to Play quite a few times, and I have never been disappointed. My most recent visit however, stands out from the rest. We had a 10 of us for lunch one Saturday and I cannot say enough about the service we received! Our server was fantastic and so friendly, and I was so impressed when a gentleman ( whom I later found our was one of the owners) came to ask us how our meal/service was and then sent us all over a glass of champagne! After we had finished eating, we were WOWed once again when our server brought out this incredible chocolate fondue plate for our table. Just amazing, we felt so special, Thank-you White Oaks!

“Great food!”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

This is one of the two restaurants at our hotel. The food and the service were great. The only bad thing is that the service was very slow. Maybe it was only that night, but we will never know since we never returned. We wanted to try other restaurants in the area. But do not get mistaken, the food was worth waiting for.

“in White Oaks hotel”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

Excellent food at a reasonable price and very friendly serving staff. Booking can be advisable as it is used also by people coming in from the health club.

“Great local find!”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

My friend and I enjoyed a special birthday lunch here (June 20). We have sampled many local restaurants over the years but never tried this one. Our overall experience was wonderful! From being genuinely greeted by the valet and desk staff upon entering White Oaks Resort to the cheerful attentiveness of our server. Our food was excellent [try Health Nut & Lentil Salads & Seafood BLT) and our server even arranged for complimentary beverages and specialty chocolate writing on our dessert! Although this review is late we have certainly raved about the café to our friends and will definitely be back.
