We had the buffet lunch: tomato soup with warm bread, then a range of warm dishes, salads and fruit plus coffee. Thought it was a great meal and good value. Friendly and helpful staff.

We stopped through today for lunch and it was fantastic! My husband had the shrimp pasta and I had the vegetarian burger and they were both INCREDIBLE! We also split a dessert of warm chocolate cake and local ice cream and it was wonderful!

I ordered fish main coarse in the three coarse menu in this restaurant. Cod was so delicious with fresh cauliflower and sweet pepper, and starter was also tasty with lamb! It was the perfect dinner in Borganes.
