“An unusual yet pleasant experience.”
Reviewed 8 May 2013

We were a large party celebrating a dear friend's wedding. I'd never been to a buffet lunch at this place before but I was pleasantly surprised. The selection in all sections was vast and we found ourselves getting up for more one time too often. The food was deliciously tasty; a blend of assorted flavours hitting those taste buds right where you would want them to. Unfortunately, we cannot say much about the cake prepared. This was rather disappointing, flaky and unoriginal but we were not up for too much of a dessert after the meal. Our host, Peter, did a great job looking after us. The only downside of all this was there isn't anywhere near where one can enjoy a cigarette outside and would have to go to the hotel's main entrance otherwise we definitely recommend a visit.

“Rude and arrogant staff”
Reviewed 2 March 2011

We were booked to eat at this restaurant 2 Sundays ago. We were kept waiting outside the restaurant for three quarters of an hour for god knows what. Staff, waiters, cleaners, managers, drifted by us as if we didnt exist and didnt even acknowledge us. We were left waiting there without being given any sort of reason or apology for this delay until we decided to leave and go to another restaurant close by. I definitely would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. The hotel might be 5 star but the service leaves alot to be desired!!!!
