“Not so great this time”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

OK, the service is slow as normally, but so far the quality of dishes made it worth to wait. Not this time. Gravlax soup is a mistake - way too salty, and not a nice experience. As a main dish, instead of the ordered trout, I received salmon. Normally, it is not a tragedy, but it never happened before. OK, sorry to say, it worth venture out to the city, even if you wanted to have just a quiet dinner before next day.

“Typical hotel restaurant”
Reviewed 31 July 2012 via mobile

Typical hotel restaurant - nothing special, but same time good enough if you are lazy to get out.
There is a choice either to use menu or buffet - I preffered first as price difference was not too big.
Service was quite fast, food quality acceptable and we spent just 35eur for two (no alcohol).
Conclusion - if you want to dine with charm, go somewhere else, if you are a Radisson Olumpia hotel guest, this might be your choice.

“plain awful food”
Reviewed 26 July 2012

Had a business lunch recently - what a disappointment. All three courses where spoiled completely:
- soup was extremely salty and fat, though it should not be. Vegetables in soup where from deep frozen packages. what a shame. Staff however tried to argue instead of apologize of suggest another meal.
- bread was dry and rock solid
- pizza was something between bad and very bad american style
- even coffee wasn't good.
Opinion was not mine alone but shared by 2 other persons.
Had to cancel lunch and head for another place for proper food.

“Not sure what you get.”
Reviewed 12 June 2012 via mobile

Located in Radisson Olumpia, food was below expectations. Caesar salad was mix of fresh and wilted not so fresh lettuce. Tossed with bland caesar dressing, but covered with fresh parmesan shavings. Croutons were white toast and flavorless. The spring rolls with hoison sauce were visibly shy of both shrimps and chicken. But crisp roll and flavorful sauce saved the dish, perhaps. Then the paella. It was supposed to be scallops, shrimp and salmon. It looked more like a ridotto with a mild tandoori sauce, with one medium-size scallop, two medium shrimp and bits of salmon, all overpowered by the sauce. Taste was ok fir food. But clearly not what i would call paella. The chef needs to return to classic recipes and at least retain the fundamental essence of the cultures from which they come.

“convenient and yummy”
Reviewed 5 June 2012

Top notch breakfast buffet with a stay at the hotel. And I had dinner twice there as well. The salmon chowder was creamy but not too heavy. The fish dishes were excellent.
