“For a hotel restaurant, not bad...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2014

We ate here for breakfast all three mornings as it was included in our already very reasonable room price. Nothing spectacular, but very good. We also had a very nice dinner there on a Thursday night featuring traditional food, dancers and music. Again, nothing spectacular, but a solid value considering the show and overall experience.

“Overpriced”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Average breakfast buffet - $75+ couple. Service was OK but hard to justify price. Trying to burn off upgrade credit.

“Brunch here is the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014 via mobile

I've tried a few brunch spots here in town and I must say le meridien is my favorite. Great selection, service and probably the best dessert section out of all the hotel brunches. Coming back again for sure.

“Great location but they could make it better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 April 2014

Le Bourbon is Le Meridien's French style restaurant.
The decor and atmosphere were as you can expect from a four star hotel restaurant. The menu had an ok variety and included seasonal dishes. They were well presented however we had the impression that they used the left of from the breakfast. It is really sad from a four star hotels restaurant.
The best part of the meal was the service. Our waiters were very discrete, attentive and helpful.
We had breakfast there every morning and that experience was totally different. It was elegant and tasty and the waiters were the same attentive and helpful.
