This doubles as the hotel breakfast room. Breakfast options will cover pretty much all tastes - cereal, juice, cold cuts, pastries, and a full range of hot items. I'm sure even a vegetarian could make quite well out of the range present. Eating at 7am overlooking the bay Algeciras is stunning. Once the light begins to rise, and the dingy refinery complex starts to appear from the dark it is less impressive, but go early. It's worth it.

There are also a limited number of bar tables available around the rooftop pool.

Lovely night views over the bay and rock. Not much of a range of choice on the menu but what was served was freshly made and of a generous portion. Fillet steak was cooked to perfection and couldn't fault any of the dishes we had.

The views here are absolutely amazing!!! The waiters were so kind and attentive. I enjoyed breakfast here 3 days in a row :-) The views, panoramic views of this hotel were incredible and would make any meal enjoyable! Pepe is amazing that works there, he is wonderful.

The best things about this restaurant are the views and the nice staff.
The food is edible but not particularly tasty or exciting. Having said that I think older people would love it. We ate here over new year as nothing else was open and it did the job.

Ate in as couldn't find anywhere else initially. Main claim was roof top view, but the blinds were drawn so you couldn't see anything!
Food was pretty uninspiring and rather standard overpriced hotel fare. Waiter had obviously been in a hot kitchen or hadn't washed in a while as he stank of sweat, which was rather off-putting whilst trying to eat!
