Whoever designed the decor for this bar restaurant should be shot!
Garish red, orange and brown colour scheme, distressed wood with an awful barbed wire motif throughout.
Three huge, framed pieces of dark glass dominate the downstairs eating area. These are particularly irritating as they don't reflect like mirrors, nor do they have any discernible pattern on them. They just kind of sit their glowering at you whilst you dine.
At one end of the room is a hideous metal construction, a little like a large, battered, shapeless, cooking pot, with one seat in the middle of it. It is completely pointless and irritating to the eye.
The table knives are too large for the hand and a perfect example of form over function - useless! So useless in fact that the idiot responsible for the interior design seems to have acknowledged this and thrown a couple of dozen of them into one of the walls in a misguided attempt to spell out the name of the place.
We only ate the buffet breakfast, which was generally just about adequate, although the scrambled eggs were a congealed, soggy, watery mess.
The accompanying Hilton Hotel was fine, but if you do happen to stay there, I would suggest that there are dozens of better places to eat within a couple of blocks than the Rare bar and restaurant.
