The place is nice and calm to eat for a business lunch. My experience was awful since I ordered a vegetarian course: wok of vegetables and tofu with green curry. It was extremely spicy and looked more like a coconut milk soup with some vegetables. It's true that there was a lot of tofu (generous proportion) but as I had... More

Only had breakfast, but ate here > a dozen times over several trips. Decent selection, but I have a personal bias against runny scrambled eggs on the hot food section. Omelette bar looks good but it opens too late for me to take advantage. Also, it is a European thing but the "cold" still and carbonated mineral water is only... More

Not a lot to say but it is a hotel cafe and I have breakfast here every morning. I think it average in every way, nothing sticks out as exceptional. If you are here on business and need to eat it is servicable.

I arrived latish on a Sunday night. The delightful young lady serving on the terrace allowed me to eat there, although she was about to close. The food was fine, the waiting staff, led by said waitress, were attentive and very friendly

We arrived on a very, wet, cold December night, not intending to eat on the hotel premises. We were at the hotel for one night, the hotel restaurant was closed so the only option was to eat at the bar. Not a great deal of choice but we ordered Gorgonzola sauce on penne and chicken curry, which were beautifully presented... More

I had breakfast here a number of times, and it all starts with a long line until you get in (the receptionist is also the cashier), then you need to find a table, which is often difficult. The selection is good, but not unusual for a hotel of this standard. It would be good to have a 2nd chef for... More
