I have stayed with the Radisson hotels in many countries, so the room was exactly as I expected it to be.
It's their restaurant and quality of service I received that prompted me to write this review.
I have been greeted on arrival and seated at properly set table. Jug of water and couple slices of home made bread and butter arrived in no time.
Menu nicely priced, I settled for starter and fillet steak as a main course.
I did not expect great things, just a decent meal. However the Irish brie wedge, deep fried and served with raspberry sauce(those dreaded seeds) was just delicious and cooked to perfection. Locally sourced beef and master skills of headchef made my experience with medium rare steak, served on potatoes lyonnaise(?)bed really pleasant.
Over the meal I have been served by two different waitresses(actually I think manager was helping out on that evening as well) and each one was as expert and as pleasant as the other. Couple tables away the hen party was up and running, with girls downing bubbly and wearing ubiquitous bunny ears.
Coffee finished this really good meal.
