About
As the beating heart of the hotel, Mandarin Bar & Bistrot offers a seductive mix of contemporary music, delicious dishes and bespoke cocktails. The black and white marble mosaic covered floor and walls combined with a large central bar and eclectic mix of furniture creates the perfect backdrop for drinking and dining. The bar bistro menu features a mix of Italian dishes, salads and Antonio Guida’s reinterpretation of traditional sandwiches, served with a modern twist. Evenings are marked by two key muments, ‘Aperitivo’ and ‘After Dinner’.

Great location for an aperitivo - especially during the summer when you can sit outside in the little courtyard. Very good wine and cocktail list served with complimentary delicacies.

We went to eat at Seta but found it was fully booked so went to the bistro at the hotel instead. We were not disappointed, absolutely excellent special octopus risotto!
