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. There is also a large selection of fresh pastries, bacon, sausage, scrambled eggs, roasted potatoes, fresh smoothies, lots of juice, etc.. Lots of selection and good quality buffet at a... More

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. There were 13 of us and the first disappointing thing was that we were seated at 4 round tables pushed together up against a wall. Difficult for all to fit in and more difficult for anyone to...

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... More

Visiting Halifax for a week, I tried a number of restaurants. The menu was varied, and the food tasty, but nothing really special. There are so many amazing culinary experiences in Halifax I was hoping the restaurant attached to a major hotel would be one of them. It was fine, just regular - as was the service.
