Excellent quality in a busy hotel

Sofitel really pride itself on food and this is a perfect example. We have visited a few times as we often stay here for business. The menu often changes. But the focus on local food prepared with a French influence and fine service make this a good choice. Food and service are five star but I have... read more

The private bar and dinner service at Prive 249 was exceptional, and our party of over 60 guests were all attended to personally. Would highly recommend for Christmas parties or staff functions, and would be stunning for a small classy wedding reception.

This was our second visit this year. The food and service did not disappoint after a fabulous first visit even though the chef had changed. We also love the complimentary amuse bouche and chocolates which just top off the evening. It's not the cheapest venue but the ambience, staff and quality dishes make up for it.

Prive( I thought it was spelt differently?), has developed from an open noisy area of the bistro restaurant at Sofitel to an oasis away from the maddening crowd. Service is silver service with attentive and knowledgeable staff particularly Gino and Lights a male and female combination who provide impeccable service. Simply put the food and wine will satisfy anyone's whims.... More

The decor and ambiance of the restaurant is good. The staff were helpful, so the service was good. Unfortunately the food let the night down, and we will not dine here again. We expected fine dining and by that I mean flavours that were able to be tasted and balanced with the dish. The scallop entree was bland, it didn't... More

A group of around 35 business people held a VIP dinner to farewell a dear business colleague. The ambience was lovely, first class. The service impeccable and non-intrusive and the food we all loved. Great night!!!

We had previously visited Prive 249 way back in 2013 and had the degustation menu and it was excellent so we had to go back this time. The Degustation menu had too many dishes we would have had to chance due to dietary requirement so we went with the A-la-carte menu this time. We both had Pork as our entree's... More
