Nice Restaurant to Spend Your Evening

We had dinner at the Aalto Restaurant since we stayed at the Hotel Latour. The waiters were all extremely friendly and welcoming, and the food wasn't too bad.

I 've often looked at this place whilst waiting for the bus and have always been intrigued as to what it was like on the inside, so I visited on a dark and very wet night, I was glad that they had a car park....nearly outside the premises, so didn't get too wet. The entrance of the hotel is clean,... More

We stopped the night at Hotel La Tour and we didn't want to leave the hotel so we chose to eat in the Aalto restaurant. The signature dishes are the steaks so I went for the rump steak, a lean cut so generally not the most succulent however when it arrived I was amazed at how easily the knife ran... More

We had the tomahawk steak for two and it was fantastic, cooked one half to my taste rare and the other to my husband's taste medium rare. We also had the standard steak frite the second night and that was great too.

The service was exceptional and the meals were excellent and presented beautifully. Only thing I am never keen on is the extras for veg etc., which you... More

We ate here as we had a weekend package booked at the hotel which included a credit toward F&B. Service was a bit slow throughout and they did bring us the wrong bottle of wine to start with, however the food was superb, my husband had fillet steak and loved it, he doesn't often order it out as we have...
