“Perfect Lunch Salads, Desserts and others”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

I liked it cos they have very good menu. I like steaks and soups but sometimes I want something special, unusual or rare. So it was like that when I saw some of their salads. My favorite was Freshness Salad with Blue cheese, walnuts and raisins. So if you are looking for something special then try one or other from their Lunch Salads. And yes, I agree with Andy P about their special royal chicken – it is very delicious and juicy, and it was one of my favorites, too.

Dear Jane,

It's our pleasure to see such a wonderful review. Our team always works hard to come up to our dear guest's expectation so as to satisfy their small details of needs and request.

Speaking about the Steak, you might also like our other steaks with your choice of a side dish. We only use fresh high-quality ingredients, that's why the food appears to be so good.

We recommend you to try our sweet crepes with whipped cream or Vienna waffles. Baked apples with a choice of chocolate, fruit or honey stuffings will be a good choice for those who want to try something special. We must agree with you - the Royal Penguin Chicken really delicious & juicy. We love them ourselves. We only use fresh high-quality ingredients, that's why the food appears to be so good.

We'll be really happy to see you and serve you some nice food again :)

Warm regards,
Royal Penguin Boutique Hotel & Spa 2 team

“Excellent food. Brilliant design”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

This time I stayed in Penguin 2 Hotel with its unique Cave restaurant. I was really amazed anytime when I saw these glacier-like walls and pillars, and beautiful crystals. They have a new menu now, looks very pretty. I always prefer to choose food by pictures and here I found very nice pictures for each dish. The table button is convenient innovation, you just press it anytime you need something and a waiter comes in few moments. They have great variety of very tasty food. I like the most savory crepes and red wine steak. Very impressive coffee menu. And I could get my breakfast any time I want same like in Penguin 1. I really love this option.

“Fantastic design, delicious Royal Chicken and mocktails”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

This restaurant is situated inside Royal Penguin SPA hotel - you can not see it from outside, you should come inside the inner yard of hotel through the front access tunnel.
It's absolutely unusual, beatiful design of real cave! With natural crystals, stalactites etc. Your can choose main hall with big flat tv or open cave or even closed cave:) with mysterious lights from crystals illuminated from beneath.
Their specialty of the house - royal chicken, it's delicious because of same special marinade as I understood. Steeks are very tasty as well. Angus beef is really delicious.
Good variety of tasty mocktails.
Didn't have much time to try more of their dishes:)
Big and VERY fascinated SPA just 1 floor up from restaurant.
On the groud floor - well-designed bar with vast sitting zone with soft coaches, big flat TV.
Staff is very attentive and prompt.
And yes - the prices are quite moderate. It's last-named benefit of this restaurant but important as well.
It's working up to late evening - up to 11 p.m. or maybe up to 12. It's 24-hours actually but I think that in night time it's open only for hotel guests.
