I liked the part that they made the food in front of us. We sat a few tables away from the door.. And noticed the... More

If u are a foodie person like me, you want the best food around. So that's why I recommend the breakfast but not the dinners. The food is not of a high quality, and the menu is deceptive. It says one thing and then u get something else. Ordered slow cooked pork and got flash fried pork....and so on...

I have stayed at the inn with this restaurant attached. Not knowing where to eat we decided to grab a quick lunch until our room was available. The service was awful.

Varied menu and everything which we saw being brought out of the kitchen looked really good. Generous portions - I had a salad which was so vast I wasn't able to finish it (that's never happened with a salad before!!)

The food was well presented, but the service was poor. My steak was over matured (off) and had to be send back.

I took my wife to the restaurant called "Dish" situated in the hotel for her birthday, accompanied by our daughters and some friends.

Six of us had lunch on the Hotel's patio, overlooking the square, today. 4 of us received our lunch, and the other 2-- after repeated follow ups with the Waiters and Management-- never received lunch and eventually gave up waiting, and one member of the party had to wait over 30 mins to receive a coke. The service was simply... More
