Four of us had lunch and felt very pampered. The food was good and the service excellent. The waiter was helpful, and agreed to take our photo! (BTW- Ladies- be sure to check out the Ladies Washroom- it's right out of an old English novel.)

We've visited the Prince of Wales and this restaurant on a number of occasions over the last few years and each visit has been successful. We had to wait quite a while for our glasses of French champagne to appear,and the champagne quality was disappointing. The list of starters was a little disappointing,as was the list of mains. However,from that... More

We had a wonderful celebratory dinner at the Escabeche Restaurant in the Prince of Wales Hotel. The staff were excellent and the food was outstanding. When our dessert arrived the chef had written "Happy Anniversary" on the plate with chocolate sauce. It made us feel very special

Our dinner reservation stated off poorly . Arrived 5 min early, was told our table wasn't ready and waited until 8:30 before being seated. No apology. Only then to be told 2 of the very limited menu options were no longer available . Food wasn't great, but not was it reflective of a 5 star restaurant. Only fish option was... More

Lunch on the porch, absolutely charming. The service and food were both very good. The lobby of The Prince of Whales is lovely, and the hotel offers High Tea. Definitely a reason to return! Highly recommend.

We went to Escabeche for breakfast as we were staying just down the street at the Moffat Inn. The restaurant is located in the Prince of Whales which is a lovely hotel and the restaurant itself was beautiful. There are atrium windows all along the street where you can sit in the sunshine and just admire the beautiful gardens just... More

When the Prince of Wale Tea Room decided to turn us away, we walked across the hall to Escabeche. Definitely, one of the best meals I have had, for my new health related gluten free diet. The frisee salad was exceptional, and the chocolate peanut butter pie to kill for. The sunroom has lovely ambience, the service is great, and... More

We wanted to grab lunch which I am sure is good if you liked what was on the menu. We ended up getting just an appetizer and a drink. Although the service was slow our appetizer was good.

Thank nms110
