I've eaten here about five times in the last ten years. In my opinion the cuisine has gone from excelent to good to below average over this time. There has also been a shift from being a predominantly French restaurant serving the odd Hungarian dish to a very mixed menu that excells in nothing. The most disappointing part of the... More

We ate here for breakfast all three mornings as it was included in our already very reasonable room price. Nothing spectacular, but very good. We also had a very nice dinner there on a Thursday night featuring traditional food, dancers and music. Again, nothing spectacular, but a solid value considering the show and overall experience.

Average breakfast buffet - $75+ couple. Service was OK but hard to justify price. Trying to burn off upgrade credit.

The sauce and the potato for the Halibut was not hot. The atmosphere was great and the waiter was nice.

I've tried a few brunch spots here in town and I must say le meridien is my favorite. Great selection, service and probably the best dessert section out of all the hotel brunches. Coming back again for sure.

Le Bourbon is Le Meridien's French style restaurant. The decor and atmosphere were as you can expect from a four star hotel restaurant. The menu had an ok variety and included seasonal dishes. They were well presented however we had the impression that they used the left of from the breakfast. It is really sad from a four star hotels... More

The waiters! Professional, kind, very well-trained and with an obvious respect towards their profession (timing, style). The atmosphere was of what could be termed as 'times gone by' and by that I mean the surroundings were elegant, not over-bearing and comfortable with soft, live, music accompanying the experience (solo harp player). The meal in total was of a high standard,... More

We had Sunday brunch in the Le Bourbon, and it was unforgettable! The hotel is a beauty itself, in- and outside, and the restaurant's interior is something really remarkably pretty! Very spacious, yet comfortable, adorned with luxury, you have the feeling you entered a palace. The staff is well trained and polite, always looking after you, offering champagne, water and... More
