“Simple but great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

We had a wonderful fish evening, all the dishes were wonderful and had great flavours. There was a possibility to change wines with each course but we enjoyed our first white wine and had this throughout the meal

“Unimpressive service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Had booked a table for lunch with a client a couple of weeks in advance. Show up 5 min early and is told the restaurant now actually has been fully committed to a large group and they could not accomodate our booking. Suggested we have lunch in the bar instead with a basic bar menu ... Asked why they had not called me in advance to let me know and was just told 'We could have done that'. Total indifferent service!

A first and not very professional.

“Good food in hotel”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

The food was good, we had a three course dinner, molecular cooking style, which means mousses and foam etc. Good bread and nice amuses before the first course arrived. Fried scallops as a starter was nice, so was the cod as a main course. The desert with pear in a chololat sauce was uneventful, with the chocolat too dominant. Good tapwater for free and good housewines by the glass. Good for a restaurant in a hotel. The service was much too amicable to our taste.

“A wonderful evening”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

The sommelier in LaSirene has a wonderful way with guests and helps one enjoy the delicious food. I have paid much more for meals in famous restaurants which did not equal the presentation, style and taste that LaSirene seemed to make almost effortlessly. A great evening out.

“Nice dinner with Gluten Free surprises”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

We had dinner in the restaurant. The youngest needs to eat “Gluten Free”. The restaurant handled this very well. Even the small appetizers were made specially gluten free for her. Destert was specially made for her. She loved it.
