Had the pleasure of eating at this restaurant a few times now, with the most recent being in early December. We had a reservation, but discovered upon our arrival that we were the only ones there. Our server was very personable, offering suggestions and making small talk. Food has a local flair to it, sourcing many ingredients from across Nova... More

I will begin by saying the service here was fine but the food was very disappointing considering the price. I sometimes try to rationalize an excuse for a bad meal but this time I simply can't. One entree was spaghetti at $21 and that was all it was. Whole wheat spaghetti with some spinach and tomatoes and other veg. No... More

There is a chef during the weekend brunch that makes your fresh omelet to order or will prepare a Belgium waffle with lots of fluffy whipped cream and fresh fruit.

It's great that you had a chance to try our famous weekend brunch! Our Belgian waffles are only a small part of what makes our brunch so special, but they're definitely one of the star qualities along with our omelets. Please join us again any Sunday! Many thanks, Simon McLinden Manager More

Decided to take the family here for a celebratory brunch today...we haven't done a hotel all inclusive brunch for a very long time.

I usually avoid restaurants in hotels as they are often mediocre but thought I would give this place a try based on other reviews. And I'm glad I did. My (male) server was highly professional, not always a given these days. I ordered the lobster roll and side salad ($19) and it arrived promptly. The food was nicely presented and... More

I decided to splurge a bit for the full buffet breakfast. Pricey? A bit at $17.95, but it's a restaurant in a very nice hotel so... it is what it is. There is a small egg-chef station preparing "eggs-as-you-like-'em", waffles, etc. They looked great by the way! One can also help themselves from the hot-bins (rather, warm bins) filled with...
