Having seen the award-winning chef Chantel Dartnall on media, it became a dream to visit her restaurant and to see what all the fuzz is about. We booked our dinner for my wife's birthday well in advance and arrived full of expectations at the Orient Hotel. What an absolute exquisite journey it was!! The restaurant is beautifully decorated and invitingly... More

What a beautiful retreat away from the hum drum of life! Meeting the chef personally as she recited the evening meal and taking the time to engage with her customers was wonderful. Lovely food, though in hindsight I personally think going with the Discovery is more value for money than the Grand Degustation I had. The additional starter and very... More

Dear Mr RigVeda Thank you very much for your visit to Restaurant Mosaic. We greatly appreciate that you have taken the time to write about your experience and more specifically how you perceive the Grande Degustation Menu in relation to the Discovery menu.

Every dish presented was a painting of colours and flavours tantalising our taste buds, not to mention the grand wines we enjoyed.

If I was to go again, I would get there earlier. It's an amazing property and the food is equally as good. There is a collection of Rolls Royces, there are lovely gardens and a pool. There is also have an art gallery. Basically if you are taking the time to drive out here, do it properly. The food is... More

The oats porridge served at breakfast the next morning was superb - never had oats as good as that. Mosaic compare anytime with the best... More

Each dish is a masterpiece and you can see and taste the attention to detail put into each dish! You want to savour the moment and let it linger longer with each bite. Wonderful venue brings back memories of Morocco.

Everything we were served was absolutely amazing, with great care taken with the presentation & also the explanation of each dish. The evening went far too quick. but luckily for us we stayed over at the Orient. Breakfast served was another amazing experience with more than 6 different elements presented - all tasty & beautifully done. You absolutely have to... More
