This is a strange little set-up … a tiny open-kitchen bistro-style restaurant which opens to a bar on one side and a deck on the other … super-casual, but with elegant, fine-dining cuisine. Like someone decided there was a bit of unused space on the hotel ground floor and thought they might be able to cash in by placing a... More

Dined at Room 81 for my wifes birthday. What made the night special was the exceptional service from our waitress Lilian and the wonderful quality and presentation of the food. Highly recommended.

First visit to the restaurant and I was there to attend a dinner function. There were 60+ people all eating at the same time and a party next door so they coped very well under pressure. The service was brilliant the food delicious. I'll be back.

From the moment Alex greeted us at the door, the night was very enjoyable. Highly recommend a pre-dinner drink at the lounge bar, and a big thanks to Thomas behind the bar...he has an amazing mind for creating new cocktails, sensational. The food is gorgeous (try the kingfish ceviche, yum!). Wait staff very knowledgeable about the menu and wine list.... More

This was simply awesome. The food: 5* The Service: 5* We were also each treated to "amuse bouche", compliments of the Chef, which was a literal "amusement of the mouth", a tasty individual platter exploring a small temptation from France.

I haven't eaten in the restaurant but pop in here for a cocktail every now and again. It may be a little slow but for the quality of the cocktail it is worth the wait. They have an extensive cocktail menu and the show of making the cocktail is fun in itself. The lounge bar is relaxing and comfortable and... More
