The atmosphere is serene and enjoyable. Sone of the dishes are pretty good while others are somewhat mediocre.

The Restaurant food and the service is good. I was not impressed with the desserts at the time. The staff was cordial and approachable. On the opposite side of a hallway there is a lovely birds eye view of the Queens Park Savannah, but only members of the Queens Park Cricket Club are allowed to go into that seated area.

Lovey top notch food and service that matches. The staff were friendly and prompt which I like. Parking is ample and secure, washrooms are clean and modern. Visa and MasterCard friendly cannot comment on the price as my boss picked up the tab.... Thank goodness , I had a great time.

I went here for the afternoon tea which was buffet style. There was a variety of food, both sweet and savoury, although I was a little disappointed with the range. It was necessary to go back for more, as the plates were so small and because they did bring new dishes out from time to time, as opposed to topping... More

Their lunches are always great, but their Friday buffet lunch which includes fantastic sushi is marvelous. Going their again this Friday. Strongly recommended.

Love this restaurant. The food is great, a lot to pick, desserts are the best! Good money for the food. Good international cuisine is you want to stay away from the spices.
