There are lots of good reviews of this restaurant. The restaurant is located inside a cozy and elegant boutique hotel. We had a 'Traditional Breakfast' and "Strawberry Mascarpone French Toast". I have to say I probably over expecting their food cause from all of good reviews. I will say it's a good food but not the fantastic one. The French... More

on 13 August 2016, my partner and I had an excellent yet pricey dinner perfectly executed. Though the rosé wine was somewhat warm for the first twenty minutes. An affable waiter tried to use salt and ice to expedite the cooling process to no avail. For a restaurant of this magnitude this is an unacceptable faux-pas. Furthermore , our waitress... More

My husband and I were very much looking forward to having dinner with a couple of friends at the Chef's Table after hearing glowing reviews. The location is great and the small hotel/restaurant very nice looking. We had dinner on the patio, which was intimate and cosy. My compliments will stop there. At $80 (without wine), the 5-course degustation menu... More

During a two night stay at this hotel we decided to have dinner here with our room dining credit. We opted for the three course chef's menu. It was excellent. Started with a steak tartar, a fish main course and a peanut butter ganach dessert. Each of these items had great accoutrements with them that added and brought out the... More
