“Amazing hotel but food very average and overpriced!!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013 via mobile

Stayed for a treat with my daughter for one night beautiful hotel absolutly fabulous room with all the extra's that go with a boutique style .Very attentive and friendly staff..... Dinner in Hartnett and Holder was however very disappointing mixed meats board was very boring and small my daughters red mullet with a cannelini bean stew was tiny Only a very small fillet ! I had the vealchop which was too big and much too thick.they gave me a "hunting" knife to cut it but I gave up!! Sides were courgettes which were nice the salad was ok but the peperanata was totally wrong !! Diced peppers ??? And way too sweet .. Desert was shared a semifreddo ... Ok' ish Service again was super!!! And the bar manager was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the wines .We will definitely stay at the hotel again for the spa but would not eat in the restaurant again!

“Well, Where to start??”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Went to limewood last night to try the new Hartnett Holder & Co restaurant and to be honest it was amazing. The new decor is warm, relax and stylish. Great start at the bar with a cocktail and few nibbles. The service was great with friendly, efficient, knowledgeable but unpretentious staff. Special mention to Noemi who look after us very well ;-). The food was very nice. Thought the gnocchi dish was a bit small but I felt full at the end of the meal so it must not have been that small. The pig cheek braised was excellent with deep flavour. My semifredo dessert was a great dessert to finish the meal. Creamy but refreshing and light. Overall it was a great experience. I shall return very soon.

“Delicious food, attentive staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We visited the restaurant to celebrate my Brother-in-Law's birthday. We were welcomed in the lobby and booking checked.We were then escorted to the bar for drinks. Our table was ready on time and we were served by a well informed, efficient and charming waitress who explained the ingredients in the dishes and advised us on our choice of accompanying vegetables.
Service was prompt and on time. The food was delicious, especially the mackerel starter and halibut with cockle broth. Our waitress was friendly and happy to chat, as was the restaurant manager who came to make sure we had had an enjoyable experience. We felt very welcome and comfortable. Our only negative comment would be the lack of signage from the car park in the dark!

The food was very good quality and Well presented. The staff were very polite and friendly. Yes it is an expensive exclusive restaurant, but we knew that before we went and selected according to our budget which had been defined by a gift voucher.
