Fish chowder and wine was ordered we informed that we had a groupon and our total selection. The Chowder was very good as was the wine. At the end of... More

Visiting the restaurant twice as we were staying in the hotel and both meals were awesome - wild mushroom flatbread very tasty as was the butter chicken. Servers very prompt and attentive. Prices are typical of a hotel restaurant.

Came in for a quick bite as we were catching a movie in an hour. We had a Groupon, and it was a great deal. I had the chicken alfredo and hubby had the Cuban sandwich. It came very fast and was hot! We weren't starving so the portion size was good, had we been starving, we may have had... More

Rated as #23 of 207 restaurants in Dartmouth on Trip Advisor, Café 101 tries to come across as first class dining but fine dining it isn’t. The Holiday Inn website describes Café 101 ….’provides an... More
