We opted out of terrible buffet in the hotel, though we paid for half board to eat some normal food and did not get dissapointed. Excellent food, very good service and attentive staff. Thanks for a nice meal

Have eaten here on a number of occasions when we have stayed at the hilton at least a couple of times each visit but not this time until the singers go we won't be back. The food is amazing a shame we only got to eat there once.

If you like meat this is for you. They cook all meat at an outside grill and you have a tast of over 15 different types of cut meats with a large range of chicken, beef, lamb and lots more. The staff are great too.

The service is excellent. The meat is fresh and tasty. We were having the Churrasco Menu and we couldn't get enough. The roasted pineapple with honey at the end was a cherry on top. Sangria was so refreshing and tasty as well. The manager mr. Shambu is very helpful and accommodating. We had a great time and really enjoyed. If... More

Very attentive to individual requirements, especially for allergies. The chef will visit you in person. They have a variety of meal options but meat cooked on an open fire is their speciality. This is explained by the server in details that include how the meat is marinated. The desserts menu offers around 5 options. The setting is very traditional and... More
