The lobster and the steak were fantastic. The staff could have been more attentive. There was a good variety of food but more choice would have been nice if you're there for a few nights.

I had the lamb shank special which was a good value. The included glass of wine wasn't any good, but overall it was a nice meal at a very reasonable price considering it was the hotel restaurant. Bright enough to read a book (important when dining alone as a single traveler.

Big surprise for an airport hotel restaurant: high quality food, good wine list, prompt and attentive service. Seafood linguini was light enough, and the chowder starter was perfect for a winter night. Loved the cosy setting, and could not fault the staff - all were knowledgeable, friendly and quick. Menu is small, but varied, with something for everyone.

We staed at the hotel prior to getting a flight and it was a great meal. We had the linguini and a porterhouse steak. Linguini was a bit too heavy, but the steak was awesome.
Very nice setting, waiting staff were ok (not fantastic, socffed a little when we asked for desert menu and then decided against).

There's not a huge choice of food here, but it really was quite tasty. I had a salmon that was very good, lightly pan-fried with a parmesan crust. For dessert, I had the white chocolate-raspberry cheesecake and it was delicious. The staff was extremely friendly and I never sat for long without someone asking if I needed anything - but not in a pushy way. I finished with a pot of hot tea served with warm cream. The setting was pleasant and, because I was traveling along, I chose a nice quiet table in the corner where I could sit comfortably and observe everything around me. I'll definitely return to the hotel and to the restaurant.
