The breakfast offers hot and cold choices. We enjoyed the croissants, fresh fruit, scrambled eggs, grilled tomatoes and hot tea. This is a must do for Michelangelo Hotel guests. No need to go anywhere else to start your morning.,

We went to celebrate a birthday with a big group. The service was excellent the food selection was delicious and something for everyone to enjoy . I would recommend the Lindt HIgh tea if you want to spoil someone.

Their breakfast is without a doubt, amazing. They have the usual selection of buffet breakfast but what makes them different is that you order you main breakfast from a menu, which is then prepared in a kitchen. No live egg station here so everything is freshly prepared. Their selection is amazing and different. It was simply delicious!!

It is a restaurant where you can enjoy your evening and where elegance is attributed a special place to. The food is refined and its presentation more than satisfactory. The service was also good. We had the pleasure to listen to piano music while dining.

We visited the hotel for afternoon tea to celebrate a birthday. The savoury selection are perhaps not classical afternoon tea fare but was amazing and especially the sushi lovers in our group were treated with a feast. The chocolate cake served was out of this world! Highly recommended for a special occasion.
