A typical Serena hotel restaurant with elegant décor and food well prepared and well served. The lunch buffet is as usual way too much food but everything I tasted was quite properly done and tasty. The restaurant looks out onto the pool in a sunny day very pleasant experience

Had dinner with a large group of business colleagues. Started with drinks on the terrace overlooking the beautiful pool, then inside for a first class meal. Highly recommend the octopus ceviche starter with grapefruit and avocado. Meal included an amusebouche from and some mini pastries to start and end on a high note. Everyone was very pleased with their food.... More
