A standard issue breakfast buffet--which wouldn't be bad except the bread products were moldy both days I was there. I mentioned it to staff after I first noticed it, but they didn't bother to correct it for the next day. Skip this restaurant and head into town to explore something local and more interesting.

We arrived late to the hotel and had an early morning, so Bel Gusto was convenient. The atmosphere needs updating, but was clean. Food was varied...I ordered a Caesar Salad and Chicken Masala over risotto. It was good and filling. Large portions and reasonably priced.

The breakfast buffet was a bit more than we normally pay $12.95, but that is typical for an in hotel restaurant. Lots of variety, good food, and I really appreciated the fresh cut fruit.

The food prepared by the Chef was so delicious. Everyone really thought the food was excellent. The plates were displayed on a beautiful banquet table with flowers and the cookies were the BEST ever! Claudia was so wonderful and stayed right there to see that everyone had what they needed.

Food and service were both real good. Excellent steaks. But it didn't come cheap. There are other restaurants nearby.

I took my wife there for a romantic dinner, but this was probably the most horrible dining experience we're ever had. We wanted to leave the minute we sat down! Although the service was fine and the waitress was a nice lady, she had no idea what fine dining was all about. She brought the salad and the soup first,... More

Had only breakfast twice...buffet one day, off menu the next. Both were excellent and reasonably priced...especially convenient for guests. Coffee was the only disappointment. Our server, Sahra, was very accommodating with a great attitude. Lobby bar across from restaurant was okay...we had a glass of wine, but they should have offered nuts or some other bar snacks. In any case,... More

This restaurant is located inside the Millennium Hotel in Durham in an area of town near Duke University that is tucked away from the main campus and main downtown area (office buildings and apartments there rather than shops or other eateries). The hotel itself is very nice with several levels that look out onto the ground level atrium where the... More

Food was great but staff seemed put out to have to work. Preferred to make excuses about having to tend to room service instead of trying harder
