“Top Food and Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Whislt staying at The Phoenicia hotel, we had a fantastic meal at the brasserie, it is also open to non-guests. The food was magnificent, there was fish of the day on display outside for you to select and all was cooked to perfection (the chef comes round personally to check which says a lot of his confidence). The staff are all very professional, the head waiter in particular exudes the air of a man who takes pride in his job and knows exactly what he is doing. Well worth the money and a great experience all in all.

“A superb dining experience at Pegasus Brasserie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

Whilst staying at the Phoenicia we dined at the Pegasus Brasserie located within the hotel. it is without question among the best restaurants at which we have dined over the last two or three years. It should be emphasised that as the door is open to all and since it is popular among the discerning local residents it is advisable to make your reservation in advance. The lighting is subdued and the whole ambience mirrors the warmth of the welcome you will receive from the manager Charles a long time member of the hotel staff and his assistants.Take time to study the menu which describes not only the delicious variety of the various platters but explains how all the ingredients which are of the highest quality are sourced locally and complemented by the finest grades of local wines. Charles personally served our meal which was preceded by an amuse bouche to tempt the appetite and the portions of the starter, main course and dessert were just right and exquisitely presented. We can recommend the lobster thermidor followed by the crepes suzette ( which were in a sauce containing more ingredients than we had ever tasted before) again carefully prepared by Charles. Another nice touch was to meet chef Jonathan who came to the tables to meet with guests. We returned on two further evenings during our stay to dine at Pegasus and the same unvarying standards prevailed.We have no hesitation in recommending readers of Trip Advisor to dine at Pegasus - whether or not staying at the hotel.

“Sept13”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Pretentious. Long waits for only average food.
You'd think that being in a five star hotel it should be better
You can do much better elsewhere except maybe on a Sunday

Outstanding restaurant. On the pricey side but worth it. The food was simply astounding, along with the service.

Fantastic service and a good food experience. Lovely ambience. The best steak we have ever had and quality starters, sides and wine followed by amazing crepe deserts. We would definitely recommend.
