We found the menu options limited and the prices a little expensive when having to pay for side dishes e.g.g chips, salad or vegetables. My partner ordered fries with his steak, they never arrived, he left the restaurant still feeling hungry.

I ate alone in this restaurant after delivering a grand-daughter to a nearby pop concert. The menu was limited. However, Chef Ben Nicholls' team know how to cook excellent dishes. Helpings were very small so I had three courses and a sides. So meals are expensive. Service was always helpful but staff made mistakes. For example, I ordered a greens... More

Typical lobby bar at a major chain but good staff and attentive too. Plenty of options to drink as you'd expect. Don't sit opposite the doors though as it's breezy and can be cold and uncomfortable. If staying in house it's fine for a drink. There is a brewery nearby at Novotel.

I'm sorry to say that this is some of the worst food I've ever eaten. I had a pumpkin gnocchi that was pretty much just a tasteless glue. The mushrooms that accompanied it were also tasteless and watery. My husband had a crayfish broth. I tasted it and it tasted like muddy water with some chili in it. He said... More

It's a classy place and nicely laid out. The service was mostly pretty good but getting water to the table quickly proved elusive and somehow we ended up with $13 Evian when all we wanted was tap. The entrees - Blue Fin Tuna and the scallops were excellent. However, our $40 sirloin steaks were overcooked, mine med rare was med... More

I made a booking for tonight 11 June 2016 at 7pm. When I talked to the staff who took my booking, he was very unfriendly. He was not happy when I asked for his name. After the phone, I felt that 5star restaurant should not have that unfriendly staff work there. I don't want to ruin my weekend. Then I... More

Bacar is a nice hotel restaurant with some room to grow in service operations.You may want to avoid coming here on a FRI or SAT. night as clearly they are experiencing some issues in handling the expected numbers of customers. The menu is limited in entrees but what I had was prepared extremely well and super tasty. The portion sizes... More

Staying at the Pullman, we had dinner at the hotel restaurant, Bacar. The menu is not extensive but certainly has some tasty options. Not cheap but certainly quality ingredients. I had the slow cooked beef which was very tasty.

The team at Bacar are always out to please. Unfortunately the chef wasn't able to get our request for how the meet was to be cooked correct on the first attempt so we had to send it back. No problem and staff offered free drinks while we waited. The sorbet presentation and flavours where unusual I wouldn't order it again.... More
