“Dinner was nice but relatively expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Nice selection, seasonal menus, acceptable quality although some desserts seem not to be freshly made (Belgian waffle tasted like 2 da old or from a supermarket package, creme brulee was totally cold). Service was nice as was the ambiente, no first class restaurant.

“Nice meals; warm and friendly service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

For a hotel chain restaurant, the ambition level is solid. The classics remain attractive; the specials are well executed.

The service is particularly warm and friendly; the attention is memorable and appreciated. The crew remains stable, and therefore create the ambiance; many happy meals!

“average business hotel food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Typical business hotel, with average food. Not good, not bad. Menu with meat, seafood and vegetarion. So, there is some choice, but nothing really exciting. I had the chicken with goatcheese as main course. The time between ordering and serving was suspiciously short. Probably prepared in the morning and hoppa: in the microwave! You better take a taxi and go to a fancy restaurant downtown. (probably for the same price) But friendly service.
