“Small lounge in the back.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

We only went to this bar while we waited for the Castello restaurant booking we made. Its small and in the not so luxurious part of the hotel. However the Bar tender was fantastic. She was very good at her job and very friendly.

“Drinks aren't cheap, service leaves a lot to be desired”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The uniforms are cute, scottish in theme, but that's the only decent thing about the place. The drinks are expensive and the service spotty at best. They needed at least 2 more servers during our visit, they were clearly overworked.

“Awkward”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

This place is always crowded from what we could see. People stand around waiting for a table and jump when someone gets up. We found this unpleasant both looking for a table and while seated.
