Great food

Dined here with a friend for dinner. The food was exceptional, however expensive for what we got. The lamb was 3 slices and was out of proportion with the vegetables on the plate, the chicken was similar. The menu is limited, the drinks menu fairly extensive. The staff were efficient, but lacked... read more

I hoped for a quiet evening and a good meal after a long meal however was sat near to a group of 15 odd women that were drunk and loudly talking. I ordered lamb which was of OK quality however the price was relatively high

Dear Paniek, Thank you for comments following your dining experience with us. It is unfortunate that your evening was marred by another table enjoying themselves and that you didn't enjoy your lamb as much as you had hoped. We have recently changed our menu and are confident that the new dishes represent good value. Thank you again for your feedback.... More

As guests of the hotel we thoroughly enjoyed their breakfast fare - served with flair and lovely fresh ingredients - especially the breakfast parfait with fruits, yoghurt, etc. And, for a nightcap, their small bar is very well stocked and Alan will chat about his Italian heritage as he mixes your favourite libation. Definitely drop in.

My parents and I decided to go to the Regent for dessert, and it was the best decision we made. The layout of the restaurant was decandent and high class, the service was absolutely delightful and the dessert was....delicious!

We had a perfect meal after a long day of hiking (20 Km). The service was attentive and the decor was soothing .

This place has got to be one of the most beautifully set out restaurants in the country! The decor is amazing and the service is wonderful! My mother and I had an antipasto platter which has to be the best selection of food on one platter i have seen. The cheeses were divine as well as the cold meats and... More

We stayed as guests in the Regent. Upon arrival we decided to eat in the Regent that evening and then go out the following night to Bistro 1284. We didn't know at the time that the owners also own Bistro 1284 - so there was a degree of overlap between the two menus. The dining area is very pleasant, fine... More

January 2015 two night visit. Stayed in the brand new section, only about 4 months old. Of course very clean since so new and trendy. Loved the under lighting under bathroom granite vanity. Only drawback is lack of windows and access to fresh air via windows or balcony. But convenient location, and hipness of the place made up for lack... More

This was our favorite place to eat in Rototrua, but the last couple of visits have let it down. It is part of a motel and the reception was directly attached to the restaurant. This dose make it noisy, which the owners have addressed as much they can, well done. But the food on this visit was no where near... More
