“Great Service, Okay Food”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

Our waiter couldn't have been more attentive or friendly to us (I mean, it was actually a little much at times - but better to cater to our needs too much than not enough). The food was fine. Yes, a bit overpriced. And yes, a bit underwhelming (as hotel food can sometimes be). But overall the experience was really nice. If you are there on business looking for a light dinner, you can probably just get away with getting a salad and the bread they give you.

“Delicious food, small portions”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

The food was delicious, but the portions were small. The menu is somewhat limited so you might not find anything you love. The service was really good and the prices aren't outrageous. The view of the bay is spectacular.

“A nice surprise”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

I had read the reviews and was "under-whelmed" when entering the restaurant. It was quiet, the decor is somewhat stark - although a beautiful view. The service was hit and miss - although Daniel was very passionate and knowledgeable about the menu - and did a great job of describing the various items. Michael was extremely knowledgeable about the restaurant, the new menu, the wine offerings, and was very efficient and did his utmost best to ensure we enjoyed our evening. To our surprise - the food was really amazing and made up for the minor slip ups that we encountered with the timing of our food arriving. I think this restaurant has great potential - and if it's great food and service you are looking for then this is the place.

“Chef Nick is fantastic!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

We celebrated our anniversary and we had the most memorable experience! The food was amazing. Our starters were pickled vegetables (yum) and frites that included calamari, okra, onions. Next course was a simple yet tasty salad. Our main courses Paella with perfect amount of fresh seafood and New York strip medium rare with mashed potatoes and asparagus. The combination of flavors was amazing. Oh yeah and the truffle fries were just right. The wine suggestions perfectly paired with our meals. We had the best seat in the house overlooking the bay. To end our special celebration we had chocolate bombe and it was the bomb! Had a hint of hazelnut........so tasty. Our coffee drinks Keoke & Irish Coffee hit the spot. The service was excellent - from the moment we were seated. The servers were very attentive and detail oriented. We will most definitely return. I will try the scallops next time. We highly recommend celebrating your next special occasion at Mistral!
