A very good dinner. Odd to see... More

What a beautiful evening we had!!! Lovely meal and amazing service!!! John Dory starter and Fish soup to start which was stunning then Seafood Curry, Cod and chips and Ribeye steak all as good!!!! The only criticism is I think the roof terrace should be open to everyone not just residents as this would be lovely when you have finished... More

This was a second visit to the Seafood Restaurant and previously it had ranked as one of our best meals so extremely disappointed this time. Service was OK, but food was bland and underwhelming - a soufflé starter accompanied by a pile of the most boring and limp lettuce garnish, a seafood curry with minimum content and minimum flavour, and...

I was staying at one of Rick Steins hotels, so easily got a reservation, the staff were very friendly but the time it took for the food to come out was awful, in total nearly 3 hours, so not a great experience for what it cost.

You would expect a restaurant of this reputation to be quite full on. Tuesday in mid July, but in fact the restaurant was absolutely packed, with cover after cover being served. We ate from the set menu, which had 4/5 choices for each course. My fish (Ray) was delicious, topped with crushed peppercorns and a béarnaise sauce. Considering the number... More

Visited 3 years ago, and it was as good as ever. We once again got seated at the bar which makes for a great show and good interaction with the bar staff, waiters and chefs. We started with sashimi and grilled Seabass which were both really fresh and tasty. We then had Dover sole meuniere and the Singapore chilli crab.... More

Stayed for 1 night and ate in the restaurant. The room was spacious and very comfortable with high quality fixtures and fittings. Dinner was superb and the service was well timed. Breakfast was of a similar high quality and I would thoroughly recommend a stay here.

A wonderful meal and a pleasant 2 night stay with my Husband. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Our dog enjoyed it too. Service excellent and very helpful staff. Would recommend it. We also enjoyed a cheaper but delicious meal at the cafe. A good place to come for a special occasion. All in all a wonderful experience

My wife and I were unable to have a table booking so settled for a place at the bar. This review therefore is relevant to the bar service only and I would stress that having agreed to sit at the bar, we had to manage our expectations accordingly. Without going into detail, there is inevitably a big difference between sitting... More
