I spent four days this month and regret to inform about the horrible food which is served by them . The oil which is used in the kitchen to cook seems to have reused several times, a peek in their kitchen will put you off Best and safest food is omelette toast Rest all is just horrible

We were not expecting such good italian / chinese food in the wilderness of the hills. But they made our day. Cafe Italiano is a great place to just stop by for lunch or... More

The Restaurant has a great ambience and the Italian Food is very tasty and good value for money. We did not stay there but went there for a couple of meals. However, the overall experience of the place was awesome.

It was so good that I can't think of anything that could be improved on! What a wonderful place. From the moment we arrived to... More

I stayed two nights at the Pine Crest. The food in the restaurant was good (I had Indian dishes), the breakfast could improve a bit. The room was nice and clean and I especially liked the garden. Wifi was only available at the reception and sometimes very slow. The staff was helpful and friendly. As the main road is just... More

Went for lunch to their only restaurant, Italiana. found that its not just for Italian food but its a multi-cuisine restaurant. We tried a couple of their Italian dishes though.
