Very dimly lit restaurant and gets very smoky. Went as a group of 6 and struggled to find seating area other than right by the door. Would not take entertainer voucher as was told promotion running. Happy hour? Food was ok but there are plenty other much brighter, nicer places in AD

The service and staff are exceptional and the food is better than you would expect in a bar. We've never had a poor meal in this bar; even the snacks are above standard. Happy hour is every day and so the value of drinks purchased is very reasonable for a hotel bar. Seating is available both inside and out and... More
