I was in the Crowne Plaza for business (see other review) for 2 nights. Because we had to work for long days my colleague did not want to go out for dinner. But that wasn't bad at all, because the Crowne Plaze has the Chives restaurant indoors.
One night we had beers and bar food; the other night we had a decent dinner with wines. Nice choice of wines per glass. Meals were prepared well and tasteful. Service was nice and we had no complaints. Good value for money and to be recommended - even if you don't stay in the Crowne Plaza.

Chives is a restaurant in Crowne Plaza Hotel that I have visited about ten times already because staying frequently at the hotel for numerous business trips. It has some character: the main dishes are quite delicious and plentiful (salmon, pasta, chicken, steak), the salads lack variety dreadfully. The ladies in the service are good and honestly trying to earn their tips, the younger guy - slow and disinterested. The starters could be better (the trio salads are really bad, taste all the same), and once my colleague ordered chocolate cake and it came with a rotten strawberry on top. I'd suggest to the chief to bring some variety to the chief because two years ago and today, absolutely NO change to the menu. Houlihan's catering opposite the hotel offers more variety and the waiters are interested in their trade. Chives will feed you if you missed your dinner, but need a gulp of fresh taste desperately, imo.

Food was outstanding and the waiters and waitresses always kept your glass full. No need to leave to find food elsewhere.

Had ordered the mahi mahi and switched out the side. The person who brought out the food told me it was salmon... Then they said oh, it's mahi mahi. Also brought out the wrong side.
