“Fantastic food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

Excellent food and fantastic service. Sometimes hotels have so-so restaurants but the quality of produce and service by staff is exceptional. Thoroughly recommend, whether you are staying at the hotel or just a visitor.

The staff were lovely and attentive, even though it was late in the evening. The food was well presented and enjoyable. Good selection of wines.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

Nice coffee, but breakfast here was nothing special at all. Eggs on sourdough appeared to be just eggs on a piece of plain white toast.

“Size doen't count.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

While the food was OK the restaurant because of its size lacks atmosphere for a totally memorable experience and staff were indifferent, the venue may come alive after dark and present a totally different picture.

“Basic hotel coffee shop”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2011 via mobile

Not dreadful but getting there. Had a Caesar Salad with chicken. Tragic - no finess - big blocks of everything rather than being a well balanced salad. Do they not know how to grind down anchovies into a Caesar Dressing? Friendly staff and a basic choice - ok if there's no alternative but not up to Melbourne cafe standards.
