Breakfast had all the usual pieces but they kept running out of things and slow to replanish (small portion display). Otherwise good flavourful food. Dinner is a la carte and the steak I had was superb - medium rare, good size, juicy. very well done....More

The steaks that my son, husband and I had were all delicious. The potatoes roasted in duck fat were excellent. Some more choice in the sides - with a wider selection of vegetables (eg mixed greens or salad leaves) would have been good. Great for...More

The lounge furniture and quiet atmosphere made this a good place for a pre dinner cocktail. It was busy for Mother's Day in the afternoon ans seemed very popular for afternoon tea

Generally don't eat in hotels I stay in - this is reason why. Food was average. Fish was nicely cooked but nothing special, small salad to accompany - and over $30. Service was good. Find a good local restaurant.

Food is ok, not amazing, and not worth the price. $8 for 2 dinner rolls, $35 for a vegetarian risotto. I would only eat here if you can't bothered leaving the hotel for dinner.
