Far better than the regular hotel restaurant. Great wine list. Absolutely amazing chimichurri sauce for the steak. (though found myself coveting Cuban sandwich of neighboring diner as it looked incredible) Breakfast buffet was very solid as well the next morning. Bacon and sausage far better than standard breakfast buffet meats.

The dinner entrees were very good. Good flavor, but the portions are very small. The desserts looked very nice, but were tasteless.

I really enjoyed dining at this restaurant. I ordered a seafood risotto and it was perfect. It was very well prepared and tasted really good. I Really recommend it.

Our second time eating in the main restaurant of this hotel was much better than our first (see previous review of 5 Dec 2013). We tried two excellent chef’s signature dishes; 12oz New York strip steak which was cooked as requested and served with chips rather than mashed potato stated on the menu and duck with Malbec and spiced pears...

I dined here several times while staying at the Sofitel on business. I had lunch here twice (one day I had the bacon burge and one day I had the beef empanadas). Both meals were fine and were just what I needed in the middle of the day. I also had dinner here and it was memorable. The restaurant, while... More

Everyone loved their breakfast, and for me - the coffee was excellent! The wait staff were very attentive and professional.

Although we also have dinner there once, the best combination of price and quality was the breakfast buffet. The coffee (french press, certainly) was great. Try it. Now, the hotel is a different story...

The food is really nice here. The lamb confit is excellent, the skirt steak is very tasty and the duck is perfect.

We are on a tour and ate here since we were staying here. The wine list is amazing and seafood risotto and the fillet we were both extremely happy.
