Great menus and great wine, but disappointing food temperature when the mains arrived. What is so hard in maintaining quality food at usual temperature? Great wait service is spite of this, but there's a problem in the kitchen which needs urgent attention.

I let the hotel know that it was husbands birthday and wanted a nice table. They not only provided the best table, the staff wished my husband happy birthday. We enjoyed a lovely entree and main, a great bottle of wine served in the best glasses. The chef then sent out a complimentary dessert plate with happy birthday written in... More

I have never went to a restaurant hungry and I am not a big eater. This restaurant is about show and very small portions which lacked flavor. If you like it pretty then it is ok. I had the 'swordfish carpaccio, scorched prawn, cucumber, eggplant, beer' and all I could taste was the burnt prawn. Atmosphere was formal and a... More

We went here as it was only around the corner from where we lived and it sounded good. We were both amazed at the quality of food and also service that we received. The meal was above average gourmet and prepared with much care. And delicious! The staff and service were also top notch. We drank champagne with dinner as... More

Very limited menu and sides very expensive. Quality of food was ok. Wine list ok, probably better off having the tapas bar menu. Staff were friendly and efficient

We wanted to stay in the Olympic Precinct while reminiscing with The Eagles, but unfortunately the hotels in the area were too expensive on that night. Instead, we arrived early, had dinner and enjoyed the concert. We arrived a few minutes early to Bacar, and were escorted to our seat. My seat was a tad softly-sprung. I sank quickly into... More

Hotel restaurants get a really bad rap, frequently for good reason. Bacar is an exception to the rule, though. Its dinner offerings are always fresh and interesting and beautifully-presented. Clever flavour combinations make it always exciting, and there are no gimmicks for the sake of being clever – everything works. There are huge picture windows out to the neighbouring Accor... More

We have eaten here often and have brought many business contacts here. They have all been impressed. The emphasis is on quality over quantity, although the complimentary bread is a great way to banish hunger. The decor is lovely, service attentive and food of a very high standard. Flavour rules the day.
