My wife and I visited this restaurant in March 2013 as part of a cruise ship excursion. We found the hotel very interesting and elegant.
However, the food was plain, with inflexible staff and crowded seating in a huge ballroom/conference centre. The menu for the day looked similarly uninspiring.
Overall, this was far from exceptional or even satisfactory as a luncheon venue. Exploring around the hotel I felt that this was a place that time had neglected, with many interesting architectural features but somehow not able to attract the investment needed to maintain the elegance of the bygone age in which it originated. For example the garden and grounds layout was very grand, the planting less so, and the overall impression definitely spoilt by the plethora of skateboarders who seemed free to roam them. This was not a memorable lunch on what had otherwise been a good day.
